Susan Ann Anderson, 79 years old of Antioch, IL, passed away Saturday, November 12, 2016 after a courageous three-year battle with cancer at her home surrounded by her family.

On June 8, 1957, she married Leo Anderson in St. Paul, MN and he preceded her in death on May 4, 1998. Susan retired in 2001 from Grass Lake School in Antioch, IL after 20 years as school secretary. After interacting with thousands of students, she remembered them all by name. Susan was a well endeared member of the Antioch Senior Center, where she served on the senior council and social committee. She looked forward to Bible Study, Writer's Club, and the sing-along gatherings. She especially enjoyed helping with the holiday decorations, taking photos, and decorating the bulletin board.
