Obituary: Alice Bickerstaff Andersen

Alice Bickerstaff Andersen

Elect daughter of God

Our beloved grandmother, sister, aunt, mother and dear friend passed away October 12, 2007.

Alice was born in Portsmouth, England, April 3, 1923, to William Herbert Bickerstaff and Ann Maria Cuttler. She served Britain during World War II as a decoder in the Women's Royal Navy. After immigrating to Utah in 1947 she sang in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. She married the love of her life, Kay Elbert Andersen, May 2, 1949, in the Salt Lake Temple. She was an adept legal secretary and office manager for 35 years. With deep faith, she joyfully served in many church callings, blessing many with her wisdom, love and choral leadership. She honorably served in the San Diego Mission. Unfailingly generous to her nieces, nephews and grandchildren, they will miss her greatly. She was a great example and impacted many with her love, kindness and faith.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Kay, her son Kay Christian, and beloved brother George Herbert Bickerstaff. Alice is survived by her beloved sister and best friend Florence 'Queenie' Mead, sister-in-law Frances Bickerstaff and many nieces, nephews and grandchildren.
