Obituary

Frances Ada (Bowersox) Anderson

Frances “Tomi” Anderson, 84, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at the Penn State Hampden Medical Center, with her family and pastor by her side.  The widow of Marlin (Andy) Anderson, Tomi was born on April 1, 1937 in the general store owned by her father in Benfer, PA. She is also preceded in death by her parents Frank J. and Edna (Keister) Bowersox and siblings Elmer (Edna), Albert (Frances), Eugene, Cora (Andrew), Viola, Josephine (Wallace) and their spouses.

A 1956 graduate of West Snyder High School, Tomi moved to Harrisburg to attend The Thompson Business College.  Upon graduation she began a nearly 40-year career as a commercial property underwriter for the Maryland Casualty Insurance Company.  Tomi’s faith and family were the center of her life.  She was an active member of the Immanuel Church where she attended with Andy since their marriage in 1961.  In recent years, she especially enjoyed her time with the Wednesday morning Women’s Bible Study.  Tomi was a master gardener, beach regular, avid reader, Nittany Lions fan, and fashionista extraordinaire.  Serving her Savior and providing for her family were the objectives that drove her through life.

Remaining to celebrate her legacy are her only child, Joy (Karl, Sr.) and her beloved family, Karl Jr. (Ashley), Kristopher (Michelle), Joy (Chase), Kole, Lucy, Norah, Alice, Charlie, and her much loved nieces and nephews.

All are welcome to join Tomi’s family at her viewing on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with a service beginning at 12:00 p.m. all at Immanuel Church, 800 South Market Street, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055; with Reverend Steve Wiggins officiating.  Tomi’s family invites everyone to join them for a time of food and fellowship at her church immediately following the service.  Burial will follow the reception at Slate Hill Cemetery in Camp Hill.  Honored to be pallbearers are: Karl Aumiller, Sr., Karl Aumiller, Jr., Kristopher Aumiller, Joy Marshall, Kole Aumiller, and Darryl Bowersox.
