Patricia E. Anderson, age 78, of Plum City, a beloved sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and devoted Christian passed away Thursday April 13, 2023, at Mayo Clinic-Methodist Hospital in Rochester, MN, surrounded by her family, after battling Leukemia.

Pat was born December 7, 1944, in her grandparents’ home in Ellsworth, but grew up mostly in the Spring Valley area.  After graduating from Spring Valley High School, Pat received her Certification as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant). Pat met and fell in love with Glen Anderson and were married on September 23, 1967, in Ellsworth and together they had five children.  She worked at several different nursing home facilities around the area.  Pat was driven by a passion to help others and believed you treat others as you would want to be treated.

Pat had several passions in life, cooking for family and friends, watching her birds, planting flowers, taking care of others, her family, grandkids and most of all her love for Christ.                                            

Pat is survived by her husband Glen, of 55 years, sons, Gerald (Nicole), Frank (Colista) and Aaron Anderson, a daughter, Amy Caturia (Gary Bee); 10 grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, sisters, Dorothy Bunce, Rosella (Dick) Geving, Wendy Chapman; half-sister, Bunny (Glen) Eckhoff; brother, Mac (Deb) Bunce; sisters-in-law, Betty Grab, Carla (Jerry) Bridges, Judy Heley; including the friendships of Judy & Bill Brookshaw, Cindy & John Oelke, Marion & Ken Peterson, Cindy & Barry Hanson.

    Patsy and I graduated from SVHS in 1963. She was sweet, kind, shy, a very hard worker, and the only mother of twins in our class. She even told me her very unusual middle name (Elsbeth?). I saw her last, by chance, many years ago at the Pierce Co. Fair - exactly the same Patsy I knew in high school. This photo with her slight smile and beautiful eyes radiates what I've always remembered. Earth has lost and heaven has gained an angel.

    My deepest heartfelt sympathy to Pat’s family. Pat was a great CNA to work alongside the brief amount of time that I was blessed to have worked with her at PCCC. Rest in Peace, dearest Pat. God Bless her loved ones.


    My sincere condolences to everyone, knowing she's in the arms of our Lord and Savior help with your mourning... No more sorrow, no more pain????????????

    Philippians 4:6-7
    J.B. Phillips New Testament
    6-7 Don’t worry over anything whatever; tell God every detail of your needs in earnest and thankful prayer, and the peace of God which transcends human understanding, will keep constant guard over your hearts and minds as they rest in Christ Jesus.
