          Kay D. Anderson, 76, passed away surrounded by her loving family Saturday, April 7, 2018. A lifelong resident of Erie, Kay was born April 27, 1941, the daughter of Florence and Donald Schneidmiller.

          Kay worked for the Catholic diocese for 35 years, first at Saint Mark’s Seminary and then retiring from Sisters of Mercy Motherhouse. Cooking was not just her career but something she loved to do in her spare time as well, with many family and friends being treated to her excellence in the kitchen, especially her baking.

          Since retiring Kay spent her time volunteering with her friends at Sunshine Group of Erie who help thousands of less fortunate every year. She loved helping others, recently leading their Bible study, and receiving awards for her dedication. She also enjoyed playing cards and has done so with the same dear friends for 50 years. She was a Scrabble enthusiast and enjoyed playing online with people from all over the world. She loved history and traveling to new destinations learning everything she could about different places.

          Her family truly was her greatest joy and there was nothing she wouldn’t do for them. Survivors include her six children, Diane Dennington, Robert Anderson (Carol), Joyce Schaaf (Charles), Pastor Frank Anderson, Charles Anderson (Katrin), and Theresa Anderson; a brother, Donald Schneidmiller (Dottie), of Florida; and many, many adoring nieces and nephews.

          She is also survived by 15 grandchildren; Anne Gilliland, Drew Dennington, David Schaaf, Dustan Dennington, Elizabeth Rosales, Ryan Anderson, Rebecca Anderson, Leah Baldwin, Sean Anderson, of Erie and Anneke, Kenai, Oriana, Hans, Aoife, and Axel Anderson, of Wyoming; seven great and one great-great grandchild, all of whom were the light of her life. She cherished spending time with them (and her grand dogs), listening to their adventures, watching them grow, and sharing her wisdom.

          She was preceded in death by her beloved brother Robert Schneidmiller.

          Private family services are under the direction of Brugger Funeral Homes & Crematory, 1595 W. 38th St. Memorials may be made to Sunshine Group of Erie, Shriner’s Hospital, Disabled American Veterans, and St. Luke Church, to whom she donated.
