Obituary of Janice Atwood Anderson
December 12, 2020 at age 90.
Beloved wife of 56 years to the late William Kay Anderson Jr. Loving mother of Wendy Mittlefehldt (David) and William Kay Anderson III. Cherished grandmother of Kiernan Borgeson (Bowen), Elizabeth Sinkinson (Fordy), and William Mittlefehldt. Adored great-grandmother of Elizabeth, Davis, and William Borgeson; and Charlotte, Elizabeth, and William Sinkinson.
Jannie lived each day to the fullest with gratitude and a positive outlook. Early years at Camp Farwell in Vermont became the basis for her “can do” attitude, her love of tennis, riding, and the outdoors. A graduate of Penn Hall and Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina, Jannie devoted her life to her family and to giving back to her community through decades of service with the Junior League of Buffalo. Of the many things she loved, tops on her list were the Buffalo Canoe Club, Westminster Presbyterian Church, a good book, her friends, a long walk, a swim, and time with family.
We are forever grateful for Mom and Dad’s unwavering example in all our lives of character, commitment, kindness, and the importance of family.
Funeral services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jannie’s honor to Westminster Presbyterian Church and WNY Alzheimer’s Association. Arrangements by John E. Roberts Funeral Home.
