Memorial Tribute – Doris Anderson





Clyde & Doris Anderson have been each other’s strength, confidante, comfort, and anchor throughout their 59 years of marriage. They held steadfast together in their commitment to care for Cheryl, their fourth child, severely disabled with Rett Syndrome.

Doris arrived in heaven on the morning of October 16, 2013. We are happy to know she is now rejoicing in heaven even while we are sad to say goodbye. She will always be missed. We have beautiful memories to cherish of a life lived well.

Doris and Clyde have been child sponsors with Good News India for over 10 years. Doris would be delighted to know that gifts of friends and family are helping to continue this work. To that end, we are establishing the Clyde and Doris Anderson Memorial with Good News India and plan to remember our mother now and each year on her birthday through our donations.

Thank you for joining us in this remembrance!

~ Clyde Anderson and children: Cathy, Janet, Steve, and Cheryl

The Master Weaver’s Plan

(a poem often quoted by Doris)

My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.

I cannot choose the colors
He weaveth steadily.

Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow
And I in foolish pride

Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly

Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal the reason why

The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver’s skillful hand

As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.

He knows, He loves, He cares;
Nothing this truth can dim.

He gives the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.
