A Mass of Christian burial for Romelle A. Anderson of Mequon will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6, at Lumen Christi Catholic Church, 138 Buntrock Ave., in Thiensville.

Romella was born to eternal life on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2007 at the age of 73, after a brief battle with cancer.

Pivate entombment will take place at Wisconsin Memorial Park.

Romelle was born on Sept. 21, 1934, the daughter of Albert and Anna Waldera of Arcadia.

Romelle was a very special person who always put others first, and a loving mother and grandmother who always made sure there was an extra batch of cookies.

She enjoyed traveling, line dancing and bowling. She developed quite a sense of adventure in the last 10 years, going to Europe and taking trips throughout the U.S.

Romelle is survived by her husband of 53 years, Charles; her children Judy (Mark) Shelstad, Jeanne (Kevin) Bundy, Jill (Chris) Fischer and Joreen (Tim) Poor; her grandchildren Melissa, Nicole, Kristen, Karen, Lindsey, Danielle, Jordan and Amelia; and her sister Dolores (Bud) Pronschinske. She is further survived by other relatives and many friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that memorial donations be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, 1311 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains, NY 10605.
