July 26, 1943 - September 9, 2017
Janette Tolboe Anderson entered into eternal peace on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Jan was born on July 26, 1943 in Ogden, Utah. She was the daughter of Kent C and Josephine L Tolboe. She was educated in the Provo School District and graduated from Brigham Young University with further studies at Stanford. She was the beloved wife of Richard Jay Anderson whom she married on July 27, 1978 in Sun Valley, Idaho. Jan loved the beauty of nature and was a passionate gardener. Arranging her beautiful flowers and sharing her yard and koi pond with others was a joy to her. She was active with the Utah Opera Guild and provided gorgeous gift baskets filled with homemade treasures for the visiting guest performers for many years- She was a tireless volunteer and was recognized for her long and dedicated service to the Utah Opera Guild and the Boys and Girls Club. Jan was a consummate gourmet having studied with Julia Childs. Sitting at her table was a joy. Her lavish meals were unforgettable. Ironically, she loved a McDonalds "fish fillet sandwich and fries'' and could never pass up a loaded hot dog! And she was never far from a double chocolate cookie! Jan was an astute and successful business woman. She was an Executive Assistant and corporate officer at TerraTek for 30 years and was on the board of directors for Tolboe Construction Company. Jan's loving, generous ways garnered her a wide array of close and dear friends. Her kindness and service to her husband and friends were the hallmark of her remarkable life. She was a loving grandmother and never forgot a birthday or holiday. Her grandchildren will always remember her homemade chocolate delicacies and her joy in cooking for them. Shopping with her will always be treasured memories. A gift from Jan was always heartfelt and meaningful. She furthered shared her thoughtfulness through notes of encouragement, care and thanks...always lifting others. She is survived by her loving husband Richard, who cared for her tenderly for many years; children, Peri (Lance Eby) and Rick (Tiffany); six grandchildren; one great grandchild; step mother, Arlea N. Tolboe; brothers, Ronald K. (Jeanne) Tolboe, Craig A. (Nancy) Tolboe and Michael R. (Kathy) Tolboe and brother in law, David Krajeski. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews and her beloved cat “Princess”.
