Peggy and Buck Anderson's Daughter

By Jerry Gaudet

It is with great sympathy that we have just learned of the passing of Peggy and Buck (Eldon) Anderson's daughter, Trena, on December 30. We understand Trena was diagnosed with lung cancer (though a non-smoker) in April. Peggy and Buck had also lost a son, Todd, many years ago when he was but 6 years old.

We have the following contact information:
Peggy and Buck Anderson
145 Sheehan Rd.
