Obituary of Estelle Anderson

Estelle A. Anderson, 93, of Wildwood, NJ, passed away surrounded by her family on April 26, 2017.  Estelle was born in Jersey City to Frank and Natalie Bardzinski .  She married Kell Ray Anderson in 1945 and went on to build a family that was both her life’s  work and greatest achievement.  She raised a daughter and three sons, each of whom created their own beautiful families of which Estelle was so proud.  She adored her nine grandchildren whom she helped to care for as they grew.  She was also a constant loving presence in the lives of her great-grandchildren and was ecstatic to learn that her thirteenth great-grandbaby would be arriving later this year.  While Estelle has cared for so many, perhaps the ultimate testament to her life has been the love that her family has shown for her and for each other.


Estelle was an active member of the Golden Age Club of the Wildwoods, the Polish American Club of Cape May County, Catholic Daughters of Wildwood,  Saint Ann’s Sodality and the North Wildwood Senior Center.


Estelle was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, her sister, Genevieve Manuel, and her brother, Alfred Bardzinski and two infant daughters, Judith and Mary.  She is survived by her children:  Nancy ( Edward) , Robert ( Rosemary ) , Roy ( Susan ) , and Richard ( ( BevaRae ).  Grandchildren: Heather( Scott) , Emily ( Alex),  Eric (Leah), Eddie ( Toni), Kimberly ( David), Timothy, Rick ( Mary Beth), Zachary, and Joseph ( Jordan).  Step-grandchildren: BobbiJo and BilliJean.  Great-grandchildren: Sophie , Livvie,  Abbie, Jake, Kaylee, Molly, Morgan, Katie, Raylee, Persephone, Anderson and Edwyn.
