Marion Lind Anderson, 91, longtime resident of the town of Canaan, more recently of Home Sweet Home Catskill, passed peacefully into her eternal rest Tuesday, October 1, 2013.
Mrs. Anderson was born May 10, 1922, to George and Edythe Lind, Brooklyn, New York. At a very early age her father died of pneumonia and she lived for a period with her Aunt and Uncle Swenson, missionaries in Rio de Janiero, Argentina. Upon her mother's remarriage to Ernest Lindmark, she returned to the USA and was soon joined by birth of her brother, Richard Lindmark. After graduation from high school in Brooklyn, she attended secretarial courses. After marrying Sture Anderson, they moved upstate and Mrs. Anderson worked for Civil Defense, Chatham High School and then retired from her position as secretary in the district offices of Chatham Central Schools. She continued to enjoy those skills as secretary to the Chatham Counseling Center for years and for many years enjoyed delivering Meals on Wheels to fellow residents in Canaan. She amazingly provided care for her first grandchild every day of that precious first year.
Raising their family as active and faithful members in the East Chatham Methodist Church, she and her family later joined the family of the Reformed Church of Chatham for many years. In later years she attended New Baltimore Reformed Church with daughter Janet and family and was loved and loved that church family.
Marion loved and devoted herself to her family and friends, all living plants and all living things. Her vegetable and flower gardens were gathered from seed catalogs, nurseries, friends and at roadsides. Her animals were well-loved. She loved to sew, taught 4H sewing classes, instilled that love in her daughters and began to quilt, amassing a small collection of her work after providing colorful warmth to her family. Her sense of humor was priceless.
Mrs. Anderson was predeceased by a son (Stuart), her loving husband of 42 years, Sture, in 1983, and her stepgrandson, Thomas Fulton, 2007. She is survived by her children Carol Anderson, Canaan; Steve (Susan) Anderson, East Chatham; Janet (Dick) Brooks of New Baltimore; granddaughters Anna Lind Brooks of Chicago, IL; Kristin Elizabeth Anderson of NY, NY; stepgrandsons Thomas (Jessica) Brooks of Austin, TX; Jason Brooks of Pittstown; John (Nena) Fulton of Wappingers Falls.
Mrs. Anderson's family would like to extend grateful thanks to the staff of Kaaterskill Nursing and Rehab of Catskill, to the ER and 6th floor nursing staff of Columbia Memorial Hospital for the loving care she received and to the family of Home Sweet Home where she enjoyed these last 18 months, many minutes watching the waters of the beautiful Hudson River. Funeral service will be Saturday 10:00am from the Wenk Funeral Home Chatham with the Reverend Susan E. Kerr officiating. Interment will be in the Canaan Cemetery. Calling hours will be Friday evening 5-7pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a gift to the Columbia-Greene Humane Society, New Baltimore Reformed Church and the Chatham Public Library.
Mrs. Anderson's family is proud to share that her passing occurred on the 30th anniversary of the passing of her loving husband of 42 years. We take such joy in that. For online condolences visit wenkfuneralhome.com.
