Obituary of Janna Anderson

ANDERSON, Janna, Our loving and kind mother, sister and grandmother left this world on Wednesday, December 29, 2021. Her strength, courage and patience through her many health issues was an example to us all. Janna came into this world, the 3rd of 5 siblings, born to John Avalon and Agnes Oral Johnson, on October 30, 1943 in Fillmore, UT. Janna met the love of her life and Eternal Companion, Vern Sherrill Anderson, in Cedar City, UT while attending college. They were married June 28, 1963 in the Manti Temple in Utah. They moved from Utah in 1964 to Garden Grove, CA, and raised their 6 wonderful kids. In August of 1985, they relocated and settled in Mesa, AZ. Janna was such an amazing wife, mother and homemaker while her husband Sherrill worked as an accountant. Janna was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had many church callings including Relief Society President in the Garden Grove 3rd Ward. Janna was preceded in death by her husband, Vern Sherrill Anderson, who passed away on June 3, 2007. She leaves behind her children, Richard (Tiffany), Kendell (Michelle), Scott (Julia), Kari (Devon), Lori (James), and Kathy (Treven); 35 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren with one on the way; two sisters Rayma & Linnae, and two brothers Merrill & Phyl. We know that she is out of pain and rejoicing in seeing those who went before her.
