Obituary for Nancy A. Anderson

Nancy Cutforth Anderson passed away peacefully with her family at her side at University of Iowa Hospitals on September 22, 2018, due to complications from pneumonia.

Nancy was born on March 7, 1950, in Des Moines, to James and Mary Clare Cutforth. Nancy attended school in Des Moines and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1968. She attended and graduated from the University of Iowa in 1972 with degrees in Elementary Education and Spanish. In 1972 she began a 37 year career teaching elementary school, starting in Muscatine Iowa, then Solon Iowa, and then Iowa City, teaching at Roosevelt and Hoover elementary.

On June 14, 1975 she was united in marriage to Gary Anderson. Gary and Nancy spent 47 laughter and travel filled years together in Coralville where they raised their son, Christopher. She was a dedicated and compassionate teacher and an inspiring, understanding friend to so many. Her genuine and almost constant smile along with her sense of humor and outgoing personality was destined to light up a room.

She is survived by her loving husband Gary, son Christopher and his husband Chris Mark, of Chicago, and her brother Michael Cutforth of Takoma Park, Maryland.
Per her wishes a celebration of life will be held Sunday, September 30, 2018 from noon to 3:00 pm at The Kirkwood Room, 515 Kirkwood Avenue in Iowa City. Instead of flowers and plants, memorials may be directed to Friends of the Animal Center Foundation or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Lensing Funeral & Cremation Service is assisting the family with arrangements.
