Florence S. (Johnson) Anderson, of Saugus, formerly of Malden, died Wednesday, April 9.

Florence was born in 1922, the daughter of Carl and  Ellen (Kelley) Johnson. She was raised and educated in Malden, graduating from Malden High School with the Class of 1940. After high school, she continued her education at the Malden Business School for the next two years. Florence was a lifelong member of the Maplewood Baptist Church in Malden.  She was mostly a homebody that enjoyed the company of her loving family, but what she enjoyed most was her Sunday dinners surrounded by her family. She also loved knitting and would often knit socks for men in military service. Florence had been a lifelong resident of Malden until moving to Saugus 15 years ago. While there, she enjoyed her activities at the Saugus Senior Center. Most recently, she was a resident of the Bear Hill Nursing Center where she was cared for lovingly by their staff.  

She is survived by her children, Robert A. Anderson Jr. and wife Christine of Sandown, N.H., Richard C. Anderson and wife Mary of Saugus, and Susan F. Dunbar and husband Timothy of Saugus, as well as four grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Florence was predeceased by her husband Robert A. Anderson Sr. 

Funeral services will be held at the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral Home, 144 Salem St., Malden, on Tuesday, April 15, at noon. Interment will be private. Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Monday, April 14, from 4-8 p.m.
