Jana D. Anderson (nee: McGibeny)



Jana D. Anderson (nee: McGibeny), an Air Force brat, was born August 26, 1942, and died after a long and debilitating illness on December 10, 2017, at the age of 75.

Jana was born in San Angelo, Texas, and, in later years, lived in California, Arizona and Japan. During her teen years, she, her old brother, and her parents lived in San Antonio, where she attended Highlands High School and graduated in June of 1960. Jana had three children from a previous marriage, John Randall Autrey, Dana Lenesse Autrey & Laura Lee Autrey. In 1974, Jana, a native Texan, married Roger Anderson in Albuquerque, and the two spent the next 43 years loving & caring for each other. Roger had two children from a previous marriage, David James and Michael Ray, for a total of five children. At the time of her death, Jana had 9 grandchildren & 4 great-grandchildren. Jana's family will remember her as a wonderful sister, spouse, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her children were the love of her life.

Jana was raised in the Baptist faith and was a long time member of the First Baptist Church in Boerne, Texas. During the late 1970's through the early 1990's, Jana was a deputy sheriff in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, a criminal analyst for the Rocky Mountain Information Network, which serviced law enforcement agencies in the Rocky Mountain and the Pacific Coast region. Jana ended her law enforcement career as a Violent Crimes Investigator for the District Attorney's Office in Albuquerque before retiring to care for her elderly mother in 1993. Roger retired in 1995 and, as he had promised before they were married, brought her back to her beloved Texas to spend the rest of her years.

Funeral services will be held on Sat., Dec. 16th, at 2 pm, at the First Baptist Church in Boerne, with burial immediately following at Boerne Cemetery.
