Chris Anderlik

The Guest Book is expired.


Passed away peacefully on April 9, 2011. She was born in Galesburg, Illinois, and graduated from the University of Illinois where she met Bob her husband of 61 years. Her first job out of college in an animal research lab exposed her to the atrocities of animal research. She quit that job and became a chemistry teacher, coach, and life-long Animal RIghts and Animal Welfare advocate. Her religion was Veganism. "Animals are not ours to eat, wear, or experiment on" was the motto she lived by.
Chris Anderlik, along with her husband Bob, co-founded the group "For Animals" in Traverse City, Michigan where she earned the Lifetime Humanitarian Award from the Michigan Humane Association. She and Bob moved to Liberty Lake in 2001, became President and then Executive Secretary of the "Animal Advocates of the Inland Northwest".
Chris did not want a service, and please no flowers or gifts. Instead her dream was for everyone to go an extra mile to practice true compassion for animals.
