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.
