Dora Damian Anderson

Dec 6, 1933 - Oct 15, 2019


Born December 6, 1933 in Sumay, Guam; passed away October 15, 2019 in Carmichael, Ca at the age of 85. Beloved wife of 68 years to Tomas Perez Anderson. Greatly missed by children, Mary Sims, Beverly Patton and husband Roger, Teresa Rice and husband David. Forever remembered by grandchildren, Jennifer Cothran, Sherry Raabe and husband Greg, Gene Patton, Jenny Wood and husband Dean, Elise Rice Curtis and husband Joe and Meghan Rice. Preceded in death by her grandson, Daniel Tomas Sims. She was a homemaker and Air Force wife and chose not to have a career so she could focus on raising her three daughters. She was by her husband’s side, picking up and moving around the world every three years. At times, she had to be a single parent when her husband was away on remote assignments. In many ways she was not a typical woman of her generation, raising her girls to be independent and strong women. She enjoyed cake decorating, crocheting, crossword puzzles and spending her time with family, especially her grandchildren. A viewing will be held on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 from 4-8pm at East Lawn Mortuary, 5757 Greenback Lane, Sacramento, CA 95841. Services will be held in the East Lawn Mortuary Chapel on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 1pm. Remembrances/tribute donations in Dora’s name may be made online to the Alzheimer’s Association at the link provided.

    We are very sorry to Dora’s passing. She was involved with her church and especially during festivities. She made lumpia by hand for the International Festival. It was always 2000 or more. Once I was invited to come and help, she was a great teacher. To this day I just love her Lumpia. Tom made the secrete sauce which is amazing! She will be missed. Peggy and Hans

    Dora’s smile could light up the room. I loved her smile. Another thing I remember is the way she said Teresa. I just loved her accent and the way she said Teresa’s name was so darn cute. I can hear it as I am writing this. I have many fond memories of Dora and I am so grateful to have known her. Thank you Dora for letting Teresa spend the night even if she did have to wake us all up at the crack of dawn to be home for Sunday mass. Dora you are home now and at peace, rest now and we will forever hold you in our heart. Love always Roxanne
