Carolie Ann “Kelley” Anderson

Jan. 24, 1943-Jan. 16, 2014 

It is with a heavy heart that the family of “Kelley” Anderson announces her passing on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, in Gold Beach, at the age of 71. 

Affectionately known as Mother Anderson, OB 1, G-unit, and G-ma, she was a beloved member of the communities she served.

Her career as a nurse began at Valley Community Hospital in Dallas, Ore.,  then continued as a traveling nurse in Los Gatos, Calif., and finally back home to Curry General Hospital and Coastal Home Health & Hospice in Gold Beach. 

Kelley  was an avid reader, gardener and animal lover. She loved living on the Southern Oregon Coast where she fed her wild critter neighbors and watched the migrating whales. 

Kelley is survived by her father Kenneth Peterson; brothers Milo and Dennis Peterson; son Victor Anderson; grandson Justin Anderson; and beloved cat Puss Puss. 

In accordance to her wishes the family will not hold a memorial service. Her grandson is inviting everyone to celebrate her life by submitting memories they have of Kelley by regular mail or e-mail to: 

Justin Anderson, 2437 Exmoor Court, Salem, OR 97317 Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it Txt: 541-373-0989 

The stories will be compiled into a memory book and will be provided upon request. Please include your full name and mailing address to lessen the confusion.
