Mireille Marie Anderson, 73 of Anagance passed away June 23, 2020 at the Moncton Hospital.
Born in Saint Edgar, she was the daughter of the late Adorice and Blanche (LeBlanc) Bourdages. Mom made the best French toast - always making sure breakfast was eaten! She loved to play - sliding, building snowmen, biking and playing in the pool with her grandchildren. She loved being outdoors; she worshiped the sun. She loved taking care of her flower gardens, always getting excited to see a new bloom. Her favourite flowers were lilacs. She would help anyone, take them in and feeding them. No one went hungry at Mom's. She loved her pets, but her passion was country music and she was happiest singing and playing her guitar.
She is survived by her husband Derrell; daughters Christine Himmelman (Kevin) of Kentville, NS and Lynn McPhee (Christopher) of Corn Hill; grandchildren Lacey Diotte (Brad) of Sussex and Cody McPhee of Sussex; great grandchildren Luke and Kori Diotte; and many nieces and nephews. Mom came from a large family of nine siblings including sisters Marge Richard (France) and Nicole Richard and was predeceased by brothers Eve, Guy, Marcel, Aurel, Claude and Roger and sister Huguette and also by her parents and father and mother-in-law Theodore and Flossie Anderson. Mom went to meet God and to reunite with her heavenly family.
Due to restrictions at this time there will be a Memorial gathering at a later date. Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home, 3350 Route 106 (372-4800).
If desired, donations to a charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.
