Janice "Jan" Anderson (born October 13, 1930) passed away on March 19, 2021. She lived her 90 years to the fullest. She was married to her soul mate, Chuck, for 56 years until his passing in 2008. They met at Colby College and she remained active with the alumni community. Jan and Chuck raised their family in Fairfield, CT where she also taught elementary school until retiring to Harwich, MA. She became a valued member of her community on the Cape, fulfilling her lifelong passion for theater by acting in local theater productions. She also enjoyed traveling, reading to the blind and playing golf. Jan lived the last several years in Middlebury, VT and was involved in the Resident Council at The Residence at Otter Creek, reading to area schoolchildren and spending time with family. She is survived by her children, Scott (Suzy), Kirk (Cathy), Loryn (Joe) Hamilton and her daughter-in-law Susan (wife of late son Timothy). She also leaves grandchildren, Kristy (Ted) Gillen, Peter (Becca) Hamilton, Molly, Collin and Corey Anderson and a great-grandson, Vann Hamilton.
