Jeannette Anderson, 79, passed away peacefully on February 3, 2014 at St. Joseph Hospital surrounded by her family. She was born October 23, 1934 to Walter and Dorothy Scott in North Grove, Indiana. Jeannette graduated from Northwestern High School in 1953 and began her career with Delco Electronics in Kokomo shortly thereafter and from where she retired after 30 years of service from plant 8.

She had been married to James Off and Harold Anderson who both predeceased her. Her unique disposition made her one to remember. She was an avid Bingo player and planned her retirement years around that and her monthly lunches with her graduation class from school, her many friends from Bingo, Delco Electronics and spending time with her granddaughters.

She is survived by her children, Cathy Off of Anderson, David (Shannon) Off of Indianapolis and Michelle Off Rhinaman (Jack) of Peru; her two granddaughters, Dannielle and Kassidy Rhinaman of Peru; her sisters, Marsha Davey of Arkansas, and Joan Sparling of Tennessee; and brother, James Robert Scott of Converse.

In addition to her husbands, she was predeceased by her parents; son, Bruce Anderson; brother, Frederick; and sister, Bonnie.

The family extends their gratitude to one of Jeannette’s special friends, Paulette Scruggs of Kokomo, and to the doctors and staff of St. Joseph Hospital.

The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Sunset Memory Garden Funeral Home with Jack Rhinaman officiating. Entombment will follow in Sunset Memory Garden Cemetery. Visitation will be from 12 to 2 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Special Olympics or Jeannette asked that you remember her while playing bingo at a parlor near you.

Jeannette and I met in 1990. She was the most talented seamstress I had ever met. I still have her sewing "ham" and shears she gave me. She came to my rescue at the last minute helping me finish my wedding dress and helping put the beading on it. She was always so generous at Christmas and had a keen eye for fashion and a great bargain. She ALWAYS beat me at Bingo and her great laugh will be remembered in my heart forever. She was devoted to her family and friends and will truly be missed. There will be a great void where she once walked. My heart goes out to her family and friends. Lindsay O'Brien

Jeanette was such a wonderful neighbor! She was so straightforward about life, and loved to talk about old times, bingo, and her family. She was a very special lady and she will be sadly missed.
