Nancy J. (Burkhart) Anderson

November 28, 1951 ~ December 25, 2018 (age 67)

Nancy Jean Anderson, a life-long resident of Coraopolis and beloved wife of the late William “Rick” Richard Anderson, passed away on December 25, 2018. She was 67.  She was the daughter of the late Maxine and Walter Burkhart of McKees Rocks. She is survived by her son, Derek W. Anderson (Erin) of Pittsburgh, PA and by her two brothers:  Dan Burkhart of McKees Rocks, PA and Russel Burkhart of Butler, PA.  Nancy was predeceased by her brother Robert Burkhart and her sister Maxine Cieslak (Burkhart).

Following the untimely passing of her husband, Rick, in 1986 Nancy raised Derek on her own.  She was determined and successful in providing a good life for her and her son.  Nancy had many different jobs, sometimes holding up to three positions at the same time, from working in hotels to her most recent position as a customer consultant at FedEx Office.  She prided herself on her work ethic, but loved spending time with her family, including the many dogs she owned over her life.  Nancy made many friends and everyone that knew her will remember her sly sense of humor, quick wit and giving nature. She will be greatly missed.

Friends and family will be welcomed at a visitation at Copeland’s Funeral Home in Moon Township, 981 Brodhead Rd. on Friday, December 28th from 5PM – 8PM.  A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 29th at 10AM at the funeral home.  Interment will follow the service at Sewickley Cemetery.  Flowers are welcome and should friends desire, contributions can be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
