Ruth Anderson

November 18, 1921 - August 13, 2016

Ruth Anderson went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on August 13, 2016. She was surrounded by her family in her home and was 3 months shy of her 95th birthday.

Ruth was born and raised in Manhattan Beach, CA, and was the fifth of six children born to Albert and Elizabeth Pettitt, who migrated from England by way of Canada in 1920.

Ruth was an early member of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and remained a member until her death. She was a wonderful mother and advisor to her children. She brought them up in the way of the Lord and lived a God-centered Christian life by example. She was an inspiration and a source of wisdom to those who knew her well. She was "A Child of the King."

Ruth retired from Northrop Aircraft after many years of service. She spent her later years as a resident of Leisure World in Seal Beach, CA.

For over 4 years of her life, Ruth had a live-in caregiver, Aida Albos, who tirelessly devoted her time and energy in taking great care of her. Thank you to Aida, and her husband Tag, for showing so much love and care over the years.

Ruth is survived by her three children: Elizabeth (John) Novinger of Cypress, CA; John (Terry) Anderson of San Diego, CA; Gregory Anderson of Cypress, CA. She also leaves behind seven grandchildren: Bryan, Katie, Tim, Alicia, James, Ryan and Kristen. And 10 Great-grandchildren: Aubree, Gavin, Griffin, Emily, Madilynn, April, Madelyn, Jacob, Emma and Chailey.

Services will be held on Saturday, August 27 in the Chapel at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, 4471 Lincoln Ave., Cypress, CA 90630 at 2:30 p.m. Interment immediately following. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
