Lucille White Anderson, 88, died March 27, 2011.

She was born June 9, 1922 in West Bend. She was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ, teaching Sunday school for many years and always reading her Bible through every year. She was a master seamstress, an artist with crochet needles and a magician in the kitchen. She had a special touch for children-they were somehow drawn to her. Independent and living life to the fullest till the end, she spent her final day making banana pudding. She had told her friends on Saturday night that she planned to rise and go to church the next morning but the Lord had another trip planned. She rose and met her Savior, her beloved Cephas and those 4 little boys she lost to miscarriage.

Survivors include one son, Jerry (Mary) Anderson, Jackson; twin sister, Louise (the late Russell) Harvey, Jackson; sisters, Billie (the late Charles) Reid, Coffeeville, Mary (the late Earl) Ownby, Augusta, Ga.; three grandsons, Austin (Wendy) Anderson, Paul (Cindy) Anderson, Jackson, Clint Anderson, Charleston, S.C.; and five great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank E. and Helen White, West Bend, the love of her life, husband, Cephas; two brothers, John H. (Lillian) White, Los Angeles, Calif., Frank (Hannah) White Jr., West Bend; sisters, Hester (Hoyt) Clardy, and Helen, West Bend and a grandson, Todd Anderson, Jackson.

The service was March 29 at 11 a.m. at Forest Avenue Baptist Church with Rev. Don Rushing officiating. Burial was in Trinity Memorial Gardens in Jackson.
