Jill Anne (Frensdorf) Anderson, born June 14, 1949, was surrounded by loving family when she passed away on August 15, 2021 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.
Jill was born in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to Harold and Doris (McEuen) Frensdorf. She attended Coeur d’Alene High School, and enjoyed swimming at Sander’s Beach, skiing, and serving as Vikette Leader.
Jill completed her associate degree at North Idaho College and continued her Business and Accounting studies at the University of Idaho. While attending NIC, she was a cheer leader and worked at the Frost-Top Drive-In, where she met the dreamboat who would become her husband, Donald Anderson. Don and Jill married on May 31, 1969, at the Coeur d’Alene Methodist church.
Jill worked at the University of Idaho for almost 22 years, holding positions in various departments including Forestry, Education, Counseling Services, and finally, the Women’s Center. After retiring from the U of I, Jill continued to run her successful Bed and Breakfast (Anderson’s on Eighth), which she ran for more than 17 years.
In her free time, Jill enjoyed gardening, baking (she delighted in informing people of her title as the Latah County Grain Growers Bread Queen of 1976), entertaining, sailing with her husband, hiking around the inland northwest, engaging in shenanigans with her sisters in the Beta Sigma Phi sorority, and traveling throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Jill is survived by two brothers Jeffry and Gary Frensdorf. Three children Kelly (Kris), Kimberly (Adam), Brady (Char), and two grandchildren Clinton and Maximus.
A limited capacity service will be held at the 1912 Center in Moscow, Idaho, between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 21, 2021, followed by an open reception between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.
