Brenda Elizabeth Anderson

Brenda Elizabeth Anderson, 73 years old, passed away peacefully on Monday, September 21, 2015 at her home in Boise Idaho. After her valiant fight with cancer, Brenda has gone to be with the Lord. Her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God and the love and prayers of family and friends, comforted her to the end.

Brenda was born in Ontario, Oregon on February 28, 1942 to Rex and Geraldine Walters. During WWII, Brenda and her mother lived in base housing in Alameda, California while her father was in the Army, stationed in the Philippines and Japan. After the war, they moved to Boise, Idaho. Brenda grew up in Boise and at her grandparent’s farm at the Owyhee Corners in Oregon. Brenda graduated from Borah High School in 1960 – the second graduating class from Borah. In September 1960, Brenda married Gary Launt and was blessed with four daughters. That marriage later ended in divorce. When her youngest daughter was ready for kindergarten, Brenda started working for the Boise School District at Washington Elementary, and then went to North Jr. High, then to the Lincoln Annex, the Bomb Shelter and finally the District Office, ultimately retiring from the Boise School District.
In 1993, Brenda married Charles (Chick) Anderson. They both attended Red Rock Christian Church.

“When I was a young girl and an only child, I decided that when I grew up and got married that I wanted four children, and God blessed me with my four daughters. And then he blessed me with my sons-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I couldn’t have asked for a nicer family. And I love you all!!!” – Mom/Grandma Brenda
