Barbara Rogene Anders, age 69, died on July 23 at the home of her daughter, Bobbie Wilson.
Memorial services will be held at later dates by each of her children at her favorite places.
Barbara was born in Woodland on Sept. 23, 1943, to Neil and Lena Wilson. She was a nurse in her early years, and after a back injury went into management for motels and storage facilities.
Barbara was an accomplished pianist and loved to teach piano lessons. She also loved to swim and was able to take many trips to exotic locations to dive and snorkel. Barbara was fearless, God-fearing, dedicated to family, and always had a smile on her face.
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, Neil and Lena Wilson; sister, Christine Waters; and brothers, Walter Greb and Bill Anders. She will be missed by her children, Robert and Donna Anders, Bobbie Wilson, and Jay and Dee Anders; grandchildren, Joseph and Kristi Francis, Justin Jordan, Andre and Brenda Anders, Jeremy Anders, Courtney Jackson, Ryan Pendergrass, Elizabeth Lawson, Amie Blackwell, and Robert Anders Jr; great-grandchildren, Piper, Lyla and Adeline Francis, Phoebe Anders, Rebecca and Zech Jackson, Austin and Michael Pendergrass, Jacob and Deanna O'Connell, Wyatt and Brayden Lawson. Barbara was also survived by Walter Anders; sister, Anna Anders; friends Bob and Dee Headley, and others, too many to mention.
