She was born in Amalga, Utah on August 1, 1929 to Nicholas Eugene Welch and Ruby Adeline Willis. She graduated from Box Elder High School and attained a beautician license from Ex-cel-cis School of Beauty Culture. She attended Brigham Young University where she met her sweetheart, Lowell R. Anderson. They were married on July 18, 1958 in the Logan LDS Temple. This year the couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Together they welcomed four children into their home: Kent, Kayln, Wade and Rita.
Jeanne was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She will be remembered as one who loved and served her family, community and the Lord. At the age of 21 she was called to serve in the Canadian Mission. She also served a mission in 2003 with her husband to the Nauvoo Temple. She and Lowell cherish the 27 years they labored together as ordinance workers in the Manti Temple. Jeanne was gifted in organization and leadership skills and faithfully served in all the women auxiliaries of the church, including a calling as the Mt. Pleasant Utah Stake Relief Society president for 10 years.
Jeanne was a meticulous homemaker and kept a beautiful and well maintained home. She was an excellent cook and continued to make homemade bread and bottle fruit throughout her life. The family looked forward to eating the homemade caramels and cookies she made for the holidays. Jeanne enjoyed shopping, traveling the world and was an enthusiastic BYU fan. She was proud of her pioneer heritage and in past years was active in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.

    I send my love and sympathy to Jeanne’s family. I admired and loved her for her kindness, her faith, her organization and hard work during the years I worked with her in Relief Society. She was a dear friend and great example to me. I am sure that she has received an A+ from our Heavenly Father for her service to everyone throughout her life. I am so sorry that I am out of town and unable to attend her funeral. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all today.
