Dorothy D. Anderson

STEVENSVILLE - Dorothy D. Anderson died of natural causes at her home in Stevensville on Feb. 26, 2013.

She was born Oct. 20, 1919, at home near Beach, N.D. to William and Effie Doyle. She graduated from Beach High School in 1937, and attended Vancouver Business College. In 1939 she moved to Ronan where, in August of 1941, she married Jack F. Anderson. Together they farmed, operated a country store, served as mail carriers, both drove school buses, and raised four daughters.

Although Dorothy's career covered various secretarial jobs, the longest was 23 years with the Forest Service, first in Missoula, then Hamilton and retiring from the Stevensville Ranger District in 1984.

After retirement she was active in local volunteer endeavors, traveled twice to Alaska driving a small motor home each time. She especially enjoyed being together with her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her family was the most important and most loved part of her life. Dorothy was a member of the Stevensville Bible Church and the Stevensville Senior Center.

She is survived by four daughters, Darlene Anderson, Troutdale, Ore.; Marni Anderson, Bozeman; Billie Jean Goforth (John), Missoula; and Janice Anderson, Spokane, Wash. Grandchildren Chris Goforth (Karen), Portland, Ore.; Jana Pitsch (Dean) Hardin; Matt Correa (Shelley), Phoenix, Ariz.; Ryan Correa (Mindy), Bend, Ore.; Mohammad Hatamleh, Dubai; and 12 great-grandchildren, Ashleigh, Reece, Sophie, Jacqueline, Hope, and Eli Goforth; Austin, Kade and Jackson Pitsch; Bella and Olivia Correa; Ellie Correa. Her husband preceded her in death in 1982.

Cremation has taken place and a service will be held in May. In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to the Stevensville Senior Center or Camp-Make-A-Dream.

Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your marvelous mother. She was always so beautiful, uplifting and a true friend.
When we worked together in Hamilton, I was her supervisor for a number of years. Because she was older than me (we laughed about her having a daughter the same age as me) I worried that she would not respect taking orders (being supervised by me) but that was sure an unnecessary worry. She was a wonderful employee, her work goal was to always please me and make our section look good.
We developed a very special bond, shared many family concerns and created everlasting wonderful memories.
She loved and was very proud of her family. You all played such an important role in her earthly life and always kept her young at heart. You should all be proud of how each of you touched her life in a special way.
Dorothy WILL be missed.
With sincere sympathy,
Betty F.

Your mom was my first supervisor when I started working for the Forest Service in Stevensville and she was such a kind and caring person. I've thought of her often over the years and am thankful for having gotten to know her all those years ago.

My thoughts and prayers are with your families.

I regret that I was out of the country when your mother passed away. We rode to work together for several years and my father worked with Jack. She was a wonderful lady and a good friend; she will be missed.

My Aunt Dorothy was a such a kind person. She lived in Montana and we lived here in Washington State. Whenever, our families got together I felt such a strong connection to her. When you talked to her she made you feel important. She knew how to listen. You had her total attention. A gift not all people share.

I was married to Thomas P. Doyle, and while we would go down memory lane of our families, he often spoke of his Aunt Dorothy and his never ending love for her. Tom shared many stories with us and how she always put a smile on his face and in his heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Tom passed away in 2006 and I know he is welcoming your mom with open and loving arms. Dorothy will always be remembered as a joyous wonderful woman who touched many lives.
