Patsy M. Anders

May 24, 2019

On May 24, 2019, Patsy (Alf) Anders, 75 years old, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family. A celebration of life service will be held on 11 a.m. Friday, May 31, 2019, with visitation from 10-11 a.m. at St. John's Catholic Church in Sheldon, Wisconsin. 

Loved ones that cleared the path for Patsy are her parents, Leo and Evelyn Alf; sister, Mary King; and her husband, Gerald Anders.

Patsy was born April 1, 1944, in Ladysmith WI, raised in Arnold, and attended Holcombe schools. She married the love of her life Gerald “Jerry” Anders in 1962, together her and "GBA" lived in Milwaukee, then moved to Sheldon where she was busy as a homemaker raising eight children.

She was involved with PTA, helped orchestrate many church luncheons, and was an active member of Marshall Homemakers Club. Renowned for her cooking, baking and crafting skills, she took extreme pride in making and sharing her famous caramel rolls and homemade buns. Creating exquisite greeting cards, beautiful floral arrangements, and wedding flowers showed her true talents. Patsy had a knack for matching anything perfectly and could skillfully name just about any kind of bird. A get together at the Anders house was always sure to be a good time. She made entertaining appear effortless and always had coffee ready for visitors.

She also had countless family and friends not mentioned that she appreciated and that meant so much to her. 

We will always carry her memory in our hearts and anytime we see a butterfly we will think of Mom and smile.
