Ruth M. Anderson passed away Nov. 29, 2011, in Brendan House. She was 89.
Ruth was born Dec. 12, 1921, in Kalispell, to George and Mabel Shea. At a young age the family moved to Eureka, where she attended school and graduated.
On Nov. 8, 1941, Ruth married Arvin "Andy" Anderson in Kalispell. The early years of marriage were spent in California as Andy was in the service.
After returning to the Flathead, she worked for Gene Riley at the Glacier Dairy in Kalispell. The family then moved to the farm south of Kalispell where Andy had a heavy hauling business. Later she managed the S and H Green Stamp store in Kalispell for 15 years.
Upon their retirement, they made several trips to Alaska and various other destinations, nearly always with fishing in mind. She usually was the one who caught the most and the biggest.
Ruth was preceded in death by her parents; three siblings, Gene, Marie and George; her husband, Andy; and their two sons, Donald and Terry.
She is survived by her son, Doug, and wife, Gay, of Kalispell, and their three sons, Doug and wife Julie and daughter Amber of Wasilla, Alaska; Rod and friend Zulma and Andrew and Savannah of Kalispell; and Dan and wife Reni and Jaden, Janae and Jarrett of Kalispell; also numerous nieces and nephews; and many special friends.
Ruth enjoyed playing cards and belonged to a couple of card clubs. She also enjoyed bowling, snowmobiliing, exercising at the senior center and socializing with her many friends there.
The family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the staff at Brendan House for the excellent care of our mother and grandmother.
Services are to be held at a later date.(The Daily Inter Lake,Monday, December 5, 2011 )
