Elaine M. Anderson Obituary
Elaine Mae (Morton) Anderson, 80, died peacefully Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019, at Greenery Nursing and Rehab in Houston, Pa. She was born April 5, 1939, the daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (Kerr) Morton, both deceased, and was a native of Sandy Lake, Mercer County, Pa. Upon graduation from Edinboro University, she became a teacher in the Mt. Lebanon (PA) School District and did her post-graduate work at the University of Pittsburgh. She is survived by her four children, Paul Anderson, Rob (Mary Susan) Anderson, Laura (Mike) Selan and Elizabeth Anderson; and four grandchildren, Clara and Caleb Anderson and Justin and Evelyn Selan. One brother, Keith (Fran) Morton, survives. Two brothers are deceased. Elaine was an active member of Central Assembly of God Church in Houston, Washington County, Pa. With God's help, she achieved her dream of supporting all four of her children as they became college graduates. Subsequently, Elaine worked to become debt-free and then answered God's call on her life to go on the mission field. She took the Good News to China, teaching English at the university level for approximately 10 years, returning to the States in 2017 at the age of 78. She always praised her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving her health and strength to fulfill His plans for her life.
