It was the first day of Autumn in 1995. Sheila and David Anderson as well as big brother Garret would welcome a beautiful baby girl, Autumn. As a child Autumn loved insects, animals, any and all critters (except centipedes) and anything to do with nature. Many summer days were spent outdoors swimming in the pool,fishing at the lake, and just having fun with friends and family.
Her artistic ability was notable from a young age.
A great day for Autumn would be spent drawing, painting or creating artistic gifts for loved ones. She always loved Asian cuisine and learned young to master the chopsticks. By the time she attended high school her artistic flair was known through her hair. The constant changing of hair styles and color was as unique and beautiful as she was. She touched many lives. If someone had a need she would find a way to help them. It may have been in encouraging words or physically taking action. Autumn had a kind heart, big smile, and contagious laugh.
Autumn attended New Life Center Church, Tony Goetz Elementary, Woodall School, and Ft. Gibson High School graduating in 2014. She was residing in New York,New York upon her life coming to an end.
She is preceded in death by maternal great grandparents Fred & Ruby Jones, Clyde & B. Faye Younce. Paternal great grandparents Pearl & Hallie Jacobs, Alfred & Gloria Anderson, grandmother Wanda Anderson.
