Patricia Anders Chandler, 79, passed away Thursday, January 9, 2020 at John F. Keever Solace Center. She is the daughter of the late Carl and Ethel Shuford Anders and a lifelong resident of Madison County. Patricia retired from Micro Switch and Mars Hill Elementary School. She was also a volunteer grandparent with Madison County Head Start Program and a member of Forks of Ivy Baptist Church. In addition to her parents, Patricia is preceded in death by her brothers and sisters, Lynn, Lois, Lizzie, Mary Joe, Bill, Lillian, Harold, Lorriane, Ina Jean, Junior, Wilma, Raymond, and Nathan. She was the last living child of 13 siblings.
