Gloria J. Anderson, age 87, of Princeton, went home to be with her Savior on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton.

She was a 1950 graduate of Walnut High School and later married Myron Anderson on March 11, 1951 in Walnut. He preceded her in death on March 3, 1997. Gloria loved being a homemaker and working alongside her husband on the family farm.
