Obituary of Doris Anderson

Doris Kathleen Anderson (nee Butler) 88, fell asleep on Mon., Feb. 19, 2018 at her home in Yonkers, NY as she wished.  The cause of death was cancer.

She was predeceased  by her loving husband, David Rae Jr., and her devoted daughter, Dawn Anderson Denti.  Doris is survived by her children David Rae III, Dale Anderson (Eamon) Kelly; and her caring grandchildren Alexandria Rae (Matthew) Paul, Joseph Michael Denti and Victoria Jeanne Denti.  Cherished sister to seven siblings and auntie to many nieces and nephews in Canada, England and the U.S.

Doris was born in London, England to Bessie and Frederick Butler where she graduated from John Perryn Senior School in East Acton with honors.  Also, where she eventually met her husband, Dave, who was stationed there with The U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. 

Beautiful and kind, Doris was a true lady.  She was known for her energy, selflessness and generosity to her family, friends and neighbors.  Especially, for her dedication to her husband, Dave, whom she lovingly cared for most of their 54 years of marriage due to his having MS.
