Nan Allen Anderson, of Denton, Texas was born in Greenwood on Jan. 11, 1940, to S.N. and Helen Allen. She grew up in Moorhead, where she started kindergarten along with John Aubrey Anderson, whom she married in 1962. Nan accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior when she was nine years old – a decision that set the trajectory for her life. She was devoted to knowing God and making Him known. As a young woman, she was introduced to Bible Study Fellowship where she nurtured a lifelong love for studying God’s word and for teaching women. Nan didn’t just teach with her words, she taught with her life; a life she lived with kindness, grace and purpose. Her joy was made complete on Friday, July 10, 2020 and her family and friends are celebrating that she is safe in God’s arms, hearing the words, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
Nan is survived by: her husband, John Anderson; two daughters, Helen Rose and Aubrea (Ron) Hance; two grandchildren, John Graylyn Rose and Reagan Aubrea Rose; one sister, Betty Allen Aden; and many, many, beloved friends.
A private burial service was held Tuesday, July 14. A memorial service to celebrate Nan’s life will be scheduled at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to: Woman to Woman Pregnancy Resource Center, P.O. Box 610, Denton, Texas 76202 (https://friendsofdentonprc.org).
