In memory of
Erik and Rosalie Anderson
Erik & Rosalie Anderson 2019 took so much so quickly. And as trite as the phrase, "You don't know what you've got till it's gone" is, it does bear truth. And now, Erik and Rosalie Anderson are gone. They passed away within 80 days of each other. Contrary to the phrase, however, those who loved Erik and Rosalie knew exactly what they had when they had them: loving parents, grandparents, and friends - absolutely second to no one. They deeply touched the lives of all who met them, and they are greatly missed. In spending a beautiful 55 years together, Erik and Rosalie not only built a family, they left an amazing legacy. Meeting as teenagers in West Los Angeles, California, during the early 1960s, the two were soon married and quickly thereafter became happy parents of two daughters. Taking his mechanical training from working at McDonnell Douglas Aerospace Company in Santa Monica, California, Erik founded Graphics Machine Service, quickly becoming one of the best known offset lithographic press installers and mechanics in the Western United States. After honing her natural artistic ability in interior design school, Rosalie worked with Erik to remodel and decorate five homes, all while working as his bookkeeper, executive assistant, and partner. In the 1990s, Erik and Rosalie moved permanently to Palm Desert, California. Erik loved golf, bike riding, and the sunset shadows on his mountains- the gloaming. Rosalie loved shopping, doing lunch, and traveling- the Pinot Grigio. Four grandchildren made their lives complete. Erik and Rosalie would say theirs were lives well lived. We, their beloved family, want them to know that we will continue to strive to be pleasant (as Rosalie taught us), and we shall endeavor to persevere (as Erik hoped for us). Always.
