Born June 7, 1913, in Portland, she spent most of her life as a homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother.
In 1933, she married Fred H. Bechill, with whom she had four daughters: Nancy Woytowich (husband, Peter Woytowich), Marilyn Zarzecki, Judith Cornish (husband, Dennis Cornish), and Marcia Stone (husband, James Horn).
A number of years after Mr. Bechill's death, she married Jack Anderson, a long-time friend of the family. His two children, Jack Anderson Jr. (wife, Connie Anderson) and Janice Davidson, became an important part of her life.
Mrs. Anderson always had a smile and a good word for everyone, even in her last days. She was an avid cookbook collector and a wonderful cook. Her crafts were cherished by all who received them.
In addition to her children, survivors include: grandchildren, Kristin Odell, Andy Cornish, Sharon Robinson, Dr. Mackenzie Frost and Jarle Stone; two great-grandchildren, Kathryn and Allison; step-grandchildren John Anderson, Lisa Anderson, Ross Davidson, Jeff Davidson and Jill Davidson; and their children.
