The Edmond Sun
Beverly J. Anderson, 81, was born October 8, 1931 in Glencoe, Okla., to Thomas James Welsh and Wilma Lena (Gilliland) Welsh. She passed away May 18, 2013 in Edmond, Okla.
Beverly married Bud in 1951 and moved to Edmond. In the early years she worked as a bookkeeper. She was also the bookkeeper for St. John the Baptist Church for many years and a bookkeeper for multiple family businesses, but her priority was being a homemaker for her family.
Mom had a love for flowers, plants and the outdoors. Their beautiful yard was proof of that.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
She is survived by her husband George “Bud” Anderson; her children, Cheryl and Rodney Ferguson, Mike and Cindy Anderson, Chris and Lisa Anderson, Kelly and Robert LaRue, all of Edmond; grandchildren, Ryan and Riley Ferguson, Cory and Christy Anderson, Chance and Alexis Anderson and Wyatt and Brooke LaRue; brother Jack Welsh of Atlanta, Ga. and many nieces and nephews.
Formal visitation will be 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 at Matthews Funeral Home and Cremation Service.
Services will be 2 p.m. Thursday, May 23, at St. John the Baptist Church in Edmond with interment to follow at Gracelawn Cemetery.
