Betty J. Anderson

Betty Anderson of Tustin passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, February 8, 2018. She was 83. Betty was born on May 15, 1934 to Charles and Dorothy Houts who preceded her in death. On July 11, 1953 in Tustin she married Kenneth Anderson who preceded her in death on April 11, 1979. In addition, she was preceded in death by one brother, one sister and a son-in-law.

Betty spent more than 50 years of her life in the village of Tustin. She enjoyed a very special friendship with Sandy Leach, the women of the Dorcas-Eve Circle and the Red Hat ladies.
She was a lifetime member of the Covenant Presbyterian Church of Tustin. Through her lifetime, Betty was extremely active in the village. She volunteered at the Food Pantry, served on the Fire Board, Village Council and the Tustin Days Committee. Her involvement will be missed by so many; especially those who received plates of her holiday cookies!

"I've had the privilege to work with this amazing and driven woman. She was wise, humble, thoughtful and so much more! We will miss her very much at the O.N.W. Food Pantry. I am so glad to have met her, and hopefully a better person for it. She has not had an easy life, but chose to take what she learned and help others with her own experience. She loved her family, friends and had a huge heart. God Bless you Betty, You sure blessed us!"
