Lois R. Anderson

Lois R. Anderson Our Aunt Lois’ struggle with kidney disease ended peacefully and lovingly the morning of August 17, 2017. She is celebrating in heaven with her parents, Alex and Ruth, her step-mother, Alice Anderson, two sisters, Elsa Nielsen and Jean King, her nephew, Scott Nielsen, and her many dog friends.

Lois was born in Berkeley, California and lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for most of her life. In 2013, she moved to Manhattan to share her unconditional love, and enrich our lives.

Lois had many accomplishments throughout her 90 years of life, but her gift was her kindness and almost childlike qualities that endeared her to so many. She was simply irresistible.

We wish to express our unqualified appreciation and affection to Doctor Melissa Rosso, her staff, and the professional, kind and loving team at The Good Shepherd Hospice House.
