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.

Services will be held in the East Lawn Mortuary Chapel on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 1pm.
