A Sacred Moment


Carol B. Anderson

December 21, 1928 - September 21, 2010

Loving, passionate, with a beautiful heart and soul.

Carol B. Anderson, 81, Everett, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on Tuesday, September 21, 2010. She was born on December 21, 1928, in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Carol was loving, passionate, with a beautiful heart and soul. She was a gift from God. We feel blessed to have been a part of her life. She was the greatest wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother. We will miss her tremendously. She is survived by her husband, Bill, Everett, married 63 years September 10, 2010, her children, Christine Metzger (Jim), Bellevue, Scott Anderson (Margie), Everett, grandchildren, Jenifer Anderson, Jessica Metzger, Jeff Anderson (Sarah), Brian Anderson (Julia), Stephanie Metzger, Jimmy Metzger, five great-grandchildren and a grand dog. Carol was preceded in death by her two sisters, Mary Ellen Matthews and Edith Peterson, Everett.

For many years she was employed by the Snohomish County District Court. After retiring she and Bill enjoyed traveling in their motor home, trips to the Oregon coast with family and friends. Other activities included bird watching, square dancing, Seahawk games and timeless hours gardening in their beautiful yard. She was an avid cook with one of her best meals being her ‘Saturday Night Special’. Simple but oh so good.


At her request, no public service will be held. Private cremation with burial will be at the Floral Hills Cemetery.


Donations to Childrens Hospital and Providence Hospital Foundation Everett, or your favorite charity is appreciated.


Just as the Wave Cannot Exist

Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me. It is an uncomfortable doctrine which the true ethics whisper into my ear. You are happy, they say; therefore you are called upon to give much.

Albert Schweitzer

Looking into the portals of eternity

Looking into the portals of eternity teaches that the brotherhood of man is inspired by God's word; Then all prejudice of race vanishes away.

George Washington
