Theresa Anderson

February 28, 1965 — April 10, 2019

Theresa L. Anderson, age 54 of Kentwood, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.

If you were to list the adjectives which could be used to describe Theresa, passionate, funny, dedicated and thoughtful would top that list.

She was a lifelong animal lover and was passionate about caring for not only her pets, but animals of all kinds.
Theresa was also funny and had a great sense of humor and often her pranks involved a whoopie cushion and silly string.
Theresa was dedicated, a trait which started at an early age. In high school, she dedicated herself to be the best she could be, as a result she set the high school track record for the one-mile race, a record she held for many years. She also dedicated herself to basketball and played not only in high school, but on the college level as well. After school, Theresa dedicated 30 years to Sam’s Club where she worked.

Theresa was also thoughtful and would demonstrate that time and time again with her hand written thank you cards; cards which she would send for the smallest and simplest of reasons.

Theresa’s presence will be deeply missed by her entire family, but her memory and the memories of the times they spent together will be with them forever.

Surviving Theresa are her parents, Bob & Marcia Spencer of Stanton; her husband, Dave Anderson of Kentwood; sister, Sherry (Renee) Spencer of Rockford; brother, Rob Spencer (Tina Churchill) of Stanton; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Lynn & Cindy Anderson of Stanton; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Barry (Mechela) Anderson of Sheridan as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Theresa is preceded in death by her grandparents, Pete & Jean Spencer and Tony & Mary Strump; mother-in-law, Terrie Noah; aunt, Ilene Hyde; uncle, Jim Spencer and 3 beloved dogs, Zeke, George and Mack.
