Peggy Anderson

Peggy M. Anderson, age 85, of Waterville, passed away on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, at her home.


Peggy was born May 25, 1937, at Delia, Kansas, to Donald E. and Gerotha L. (Seal) Stryker.  She graduated from Waterville High School in 1956.  On November 23, 1957, she married Dean E. Anderson in Topeka.


Peggy was a member of the Waterville United Methodist Church, where she sung in the choir and played in the Hand Bell Choir.  She was a member of the Loyal Order of the Moose in Marysville, Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, and the Red Hat Society. She had been active in 4-H, Girl Scouts and serving Meals on Wheels.


Peggy enjoyed many interests and was pretty good at all of them.  She enjoyed puzzles, games, music, fishing, traveling and gardening, she also made pretty good pies.  And, you had to be careful, she could be pretty ornery when she wanted.
