HOLDEN, W.Va. — Reta “Danette” Anderson, 60, of Holden, originally of Wichita, Kan., departed this life Monday, April 15, 2013, at her residence.
Born February 5, 1953, she was a daughter of Lucille Cleveland of Clarksville, Tenn., and the late Gerald Wooten Cleveland. Also preceding her in death was her father and mother-in-law, Troy Jr. and Bertha Anderson.
Danette is awaiting the promise of the resurrection to rule with Christ forever. Danette enjoyed all of her “babies” and to know Danette was to love her. She never met a stranger and always had a smile on her face. She enjoyed sewing, gardening, and watching the fish in her pond. The things she put first in her life was God, family, and then everyone else (no exceptions). Danette loved everyone, and will be missed.
