Jane M. Anders

Jane (Murphy) Anders, 90, passed away peacefully at her residence in Skippack, PA early Sunday morning, September 19th, 2021. She was the wife of the late Andrew C. Anders who passed away in 2013.


Born November 9, 1930, in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late William H. and Catherine (McCullough) Murphy. She was a graduate of Roxborough High School and earned a secretarial degree from Lycoming College. She served in civil service in Japan after World War II.
