Carol Jean Anderson

October 18, 1956 - February 24, 2020

Carol was born a native Coloradoan, but moved around throughout her young life. Her father was in the Navy, thus Carol got to attend school in exciting places, including Wyoming, Virginia, Missouri and Scotland. She attended College in Billings, Montana and graduated from Wayland Baptist in Texas finishing with majors in counseling, music, and accounting. She even had the exciting experience of volunteering at a Kibbutz in Israel.  

Carol married Keith Wayne Anderson on September 14, 1985. They proceeded to have two sons Timothy Joel and Daniel Wade. Keith and Carol have lived in the Evergreen/Conifer area since 1985.

Throughout her life Carol had the joy to work as a waitress, bank teller, secretary at Conference Baptist Church, page at the local library, and, most importantly, a wife and a mother (and teacher, as she home-schooled her boys).

In her free time Carol always had several craft projects in the works, many of which were hand-crafted gifts. She was a voracious reader with a phenomenal library of her favorites. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, canning, and preserving flowers. She enjoyed spending time in the sun, at the beach and in the mountains.

Carol suffered with debilitating ALS for about 2.5 years. She was a strong woman who trusted Jesus and her husband to care for her needs.

Carol is survived by her husband Keith, two sons: Timothy (Leah) of Belgrade, MT and Daniel (Carolyne) of Arvada, CO; her mother Peggy Jean Burnap; her siblings Michael (Janice) Burnap, Patty Kraft, and Roy Burnap.

    Carol will be greatly missed it is so very hard to believe she is gone but so wonderful she has graduated into the arms of Jesus. I was so blessed to call her my friend. We knew how to laugh and cry together. Much comfort from above to you all. Love Janet

    We want you to know that you are being thought of and prayed for during this time of grieving. We have many special memories of Carol and your family too. I probably still have some of the candles we made together. She now has the ultimate healing with Jesus.

  3. Eric & Karen Marshall says:

    You all are in our thoughts during this difficult time. It is so hard to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and mother of many, many years. Our hearts don’t want to let go of the one God placed there for us. While we grieve, Carol must be so relieved to be in God’s embrace! God is merciful in parting us from this life when flesh no longer sustains.

    2 Corinthians 4:17-18
    For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

  4. Donna Fitzgerald says:

    We have so many special memories of all of our times together with our families, I will forever treasure those in my heart. I am so thankful to have had Carol as a special friend, and I will miss her dearly. Love to Keith, Tim (Leah), Dan, Peggy and the Burnap family.

    Dear Keith and family,
    We grieve with you. Your family has been very instrumental over the years with our care of Jon.
    You gave much time and energy. I admire Carol’s courage and faith as she faced the betrayal by her body. Carol inspired me with her generous giving of time and activity to help others. I appreciated her compassion, wit and sense of humor, her organizational skills, wisdom and subtle advice. Carol often reached out to encourage me. Miss you my friend. I am looking forward to our time in eternity. Say “Hey” to Jon for me.

  7. Chaffer Family says:

    Your family and friendship is forever in our “fond memory bank” Anderson Family. Looking forward to meeting again Carol—when the perishable is clothed with the imperishable and mortality with immortality.
    We will miss you for now.
