Karen Jean Anderson, 51, passed into the arms of the Lord peacefully at home on July 19th, 2012, surrounded by her family after a three plus year journey with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). She was born on July 2, 1961 to Kathy and Bill Tuttle in Antioch, CA. Jean spent her childhood years in Brentwood, CA and later Camarillo, CA.

Jean loved to have fun. As a young girl that fun first came in the form of swimming, later roller-skating and then baton twirling. She was amazing to see in the kitchen, behind a sewing machine, and made countless corsages for dances and IOJD events. It was through Job’s Daughters that she met the man who would lead her on the greatest adventures of her life, Brent Anderson. They married in 1977, and shortly after the birth of their first daughter, Celece, the Air Force moved them to Carter Lake, IA. It was there that they welcomed their second daughter Crystal. Parenting with an attitude of delight and fun served as the backbone of every decision she made throughout her life. Her home, and especially her kitchen, was always a place where friends could find advice, love, humor and an excellent meal. The young family later returned to California where Brent was stationed at Sunnyvale Air Force Station. Education was very important to Jean and she even found time while raising her family to obtain her college degree. In 1990, the family moved to Cameron Park where Jean quickly became involved in the Masonic family. For 10 years she was the Bethel Guardian of Job’s Daughters Bethel 74 in the town of El Dorado. “Mom Anderson,” as many knew her, served as a positive role model for countless young women in both El Dorado County and the state. Jean was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, El Dorado-Foothill Chapter 62. In addition to her service work in the community, Jean was employed for over 20 years at Marshall Hospital where she was ultimately the Outpatient Lab Supervisor for many years. Jean loved to travel, going on cruises and to Jamaica each year with her husband and family. Over the last three years, as she battled ALS, she found her life’s greatest joy in being a grandmother to beloved granddaughter, Morgan.

She is survived by her husband and best friend, Brent Anderson; her daughters, Celece Anderson with her husband Mark Williamson of Cameron Park, CA, and Crystal Holt with her husband Travis of Stockton, CA; her parents, Bill and Kathy Tuttle; sister, Gwen Greer; many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles; and her pride and joy granddaughter, Morgan Jean Williamson. Countless friends, colleagues, and family members will miss her wisdom, good humor, and ready wit dearly.

A celebration of Jean’s life will be held on Saturday August 25th at 1:30 p.m. at the Placerville Masonic Center. Memorial donations may be made to The International Order of Job’s Daughter’s, Scholarship Fund, 303 W. Lincoln Ste 210, Anaheim, CA 92802-2928
