Obituary Condolences

Bettie Jo Anderson, of La Luz, passed away peacefully at the age of 78 on Saturday, April 4, 2009, at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center in Alamogordo.
Bettie was born on Feb. 8, 1931, in Littlefield, Texas. Her parents Clarence D. and Wilma L. Carnahan have passed but she is survived by two brothers, Robert and James Carnahan, of Texas. She married AVP Anderson III on Sept. 2, 1954, in Phoenix. They had three children: Teresa E. Rogers, AVP Anderson IV, of Texas, and her youngest son, William Stuart, preceded her passing. Bettie has two grandchildren, Eric and Kari Rogers, of Texas.
Bettie was a great military wife and supported Andy and the family in moving over 30 times. She and Andy retired in La Luz and built their retirement home.
Bettie was a member and proudly served as a deacon of First Christian Church of Alamogordo. She was an active volunteer for many causes, including Officer Wife's Club, Good News Club, Stone Croft Ministries and Christian Woman's Club. Bettie volunteered and served on the Governor's Mental Health Council and NMAMI. She served for 20 years on the board of directors for the Counseling Center in Alamogordo.
Bettie's remembrance service will be held Saturday, April 25, 2009, at 1 p.m. at the Counseling Center, 1900 10th St., Alamogordo. The family asks for this to be an event to celebrate and share "Bettie Stories," so write one or two to be shared. Those who cannot attend or are unable to present them, forward the remembrances to her son Pat at [email protected] and they will be read at the service.
No flowers, but a donation in her name to the Counseling Center will be put to extending the efforts that were very dear to her heart.
Bettie was one of those special people who always was positive and had an ability to bring out the best in people and difficult situations. Come and celebrate her going home to be with the Lord and getting her next assignment.
