Bun C. Anderson

December 08, 1918 - May 27, 2013


Bun (Evalyn) Anderson

Bun Anderson went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 27, 2013 at Christian Healthcare Center, with family by her side. She was born in Custer, WA on December 8, 1918, the last of seven siblings born to John and Lulu Kinsey.
She is survived by her husband Bud, daughters Lynne (Dan) Dolan and Beverly (Steve) Hawks, 6 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren.

As a young woman, Bun graduated from Custer High School and Western Washington Normal School with a teaching certificate. After graduation from college, she married her high school sweetheart on August 1, 1941 and shared almost 72 years of marriage. She taught school for the Blaine School District for six years before becoming a mother to her two daughters.

Together, she and Bud dairy farmed for over 30 years in the Lynden area. Bun was an active member of Sunrise Baptist Church for over 70 years. She taught Sunday school, played piano for church services, did child evangelism, and was involved with many youth programs and ladies groups. In her spare time, she tutored children and taught piano lessons.

After retiring, Bud and Bun traveled to over 38 countries, visiting relatives in Sweden many times, and making new friends wherever they went.

Their big love was southern gospel music. For over 25 years, they traveled once a year to the National Quartet Convention in either Memphis or Nashville, TN, or Louisville, KY.

The family thanks the nurses on the South 4th floor of St. Joseph Hospital and the staff at Christian Healthcare Center for the great and tender care they gave to our mother/wife.
