Elizabeth Anderson

Died: Saturday, August 21, 2004
Age: 78
Elizabeth Anderson, 78, a longtime Grosse Pointe resident, died Saturday, Aug. 21, 2004, at her home.

Ms. Anderson spent the early portion of her decades-long career in the media, later becoming a public relations specialist.

With a degree in English and philosophy from the University of Detroit in hand, Ms. Anderson quickly won her first job in communications: as a writer for the Grosse Pointe News. But her favorite job, she always said, was with J. Walter Thompson when the advertising agency was located in downtown Detroit. She also worked for Channel 2 and for the former Detroit Bank & Trust.

Ms. Anderson served Grosse Pointe Memorial Church as a volunteer on its communications council. In later years, when rheumatoid arthritis prevented her from typing, she proofread the Sunday bulletin.

She is survived by her sister, Sallie (Richard) Schooler, of Demarest, N.J.; and their daughter, Laura Schooler, a resident of New York City.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, Oct. 4, at 1 p.m., at Grosse Pointe Memorial Church, 16 Lakeshore Drive in Grosse Pointe Farms.
