Betty Lorraine Anderson

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jay J Anderson, the love of her life, as well as her brother, Lyle Price. She is survived by two brothers; Ned Price and Roger Price, six children; Sandra Tyndall, Dana Gamble, Betty Anderson, Stacy Anderson, Kimberly Tene, and David Anderson, 14 Grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and three great-great Grandchildren Lorraine grew up in the village of Huntsville above Ogden Canyon. She graduated from Weber High School in 1947 with honors and moved to Ogden, Utah, where she worked a variety of jobs. After marrying Jay in 1959, they moved to Logan, Utah, where she attended Utah State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in English.  While there, she was invited to join the PHI KAPPA PHI National Honor Society whose motto is: “Let the love of learning rule humanity”.  She received her teaching certificate and substitute taught for many years. Later she went back to Weber State College to earn a Library Science certificate. She worked in the McKay/Dee Medical Library and later in the Weber State University Library where she also tutored adult students, many of whom spoke English as a second language. She and Jay bought a hayfield in Kanesville, UT, now West Haven turned it into a farm and built a home in 1962 where they raised six children. They lived in that home for over fifty years.  She was a member of the Kanesville ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints. In August of 2016, Jay and Lorraine moved to Sagewood Assisted Living Facility in South Jordan, Utah, where she remained until she passed. Teaching was her life’s desire and she fulfilled it with Girl Scouts, 4-H, Sunday school, Library Story Time, substitute teaching, and tutoring. Her love of reading and books was made complete by working as a librarian in church, medical, and college libraries. Most of all, Lorraine was a wife, mother, grandmother, and the center of a large active family. Everyone in the family knew that if problems became overwhelming, help or counsel from Jay and Lorraine was only a call away. We are grateful for her life and will miss her for the rest of ours.

Lorraine was a great asset as our ward librarian. I enjoyed visiting with her on Sundays as she supplied me with all I needed. She was a special lady to me.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mrs. Anderson. She was always so kind and gentle. I remember her fondly, from being a neighbor down the road and the librarian at church. We recently lost our Mom and it is a very bitter and yet, sweet experience. May you all feel the blessings and grace from God at this time.

Our dear Aunt Lorraine and Uncle Jay, as I remember them. Aunt Lorraine was so very kind and thoughtful to all she met. She and her husband together with Uncle Levi and Aunt Roma Anderson would help arrange a great family gathering in August when the corn on the cob was going. It was always the best we ever ate. We were able to get to know some of our cousin and aunts and uncles. It was one of the best gathers every year. Our love and condolences to the family. We love and appreciate you all and would love to stay in touch.

Sincerely,

Jared & Janet Christensen

Farewell for now dear cousin. I will miss you with your bright mind and uplifting personality. Thanks for your help with family history. You have an amazing memory. I still remember you putting my hair up in rags when I was a small child and stayed with your family. Love to you and yours. Lois
