Ella Anderson passed away suddenly at the age of 51 years at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. Ella was a long time resident of the Elk Valley and started her career working for the village of Elkford, moving to the City of Fernie and most recently the City of Calgary. She excelled in work and in her education. When Ella wasn’t working or studying you could find her quilting, crocheting, travelling, camping and spending time with loved ones. Ella was a very helpful woman with a heart of gold; she was always thoughtful towards everyone around her and had an infectious laugh.
She was predeceased by her parents Henry and Therese Anderson, her brother Ronald, her sister Fay and her niece Sophia Khodaverdi. Left to mourn a great loss are her brothers: Leonard (Wendy) Anderson and Einar Anderson, nieces Kellie (Steve) Gregr and Lisa (Ryan) Channell, nephews Arin Khodarverdi, Todd (Carmela) Anderson, Troy (Terylene) Anderson, and Toby (Kristy) Anderson, great niece Chloe Anderson, and great nephews: Chase and Dylan Anderson, Caden Channell, and Joshua and Christopher Gregr.
