Dr. Sarah Frances Anders was an intelligent, innovative, funny, caring woman. She was a pioneer in her work and in her church. She will be dearly missed. Wanda McKinney Smith

Sarah Frances was one of the finest, brightest, and most inspirational women I have ever known. She was a pioneer in so many ways in Baptist life. I worked closely with her in the early days of the Cooperative Baptist life, especially during the years we both served as officers of the organization. I am sorry to hear that we have lost her, but gladdened by the knowledge that her influence lives on in the lives of her students and everyone who ever knew her. Into thy hands, O merciful Savior,...

In the Kingdom of God, we will be learning ever more about our Heavenly Father and his purpose for us. Please be comforted by the hope of the future. Dr Anders will be right in her element. Psalms 1:1-3

Dr. Anders was an awe-inspiring woman of faith and a bastion of personal character and academic excellence. She not only made me a better student, she inspired me to be a better person. May she rejoice in the arms of her Savior.

I treasure fond memories of Sarah Frances as a brilliant professor who was a friend to her students. One of the times she came to have dinner with us after my days at Mary Hardin-Baylor she sat on the floor and read a book to our toddler son. She asked him if he knew what one of the words meant. Ever the teacher.

What a wonderful legacy Sarah Francis has left to so many. I will always remember her many kindnesses to my young family while living so far from any extended family. Sarah was not only a highly educated leader in the Baptist Denomination, but a true example of servanthood in so many areas. The impact her life had on so many will live on for generations. "Well done good and faithful servant." Twila Spurgeon Harris

Today many alumnae of Mary Hardin-Baylor College mourn the loss of Dr. Anders---
professor, role model, friend and personally, my hero.

Dr. Anders taught me the core curriculum sociology which I enjoyed. But, mostly I enjoyed her. She had the rare ability to be both authoritative, and friendly. I worked for Dr. Hearn while a student at L.C., but would occasionally do some work for Dr. Anders. She was also pleasant to work for. A great lady.

Dr. Anders was such a wonderful and inspirational person - a great teacher and a good friend. Students taught by her at University of Mary Hardin-Baylor were always blessed by her.
