Jennifer A. Zahn Anderson, 69, Orwell native


RUTLAND — Jennifer Anderson died unexpectedly at her home in Rutland, Vt., on Aug. 8, 2022.

Jennifer was predeceased by her parents, H. Keith Zahn and Valerie (Turner) Zahn.

Jennifer grew up in the small town of Orwell, Vt., on Stevens Orchard, which held her heart and fondest memories. She loved her grandchildren with her whole heart and playing make-believe with them. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, music and spending time playing gin rummy with her dear friend Patty. Jennifer loved nature and all of its creatures (except spiders). She had a kind and gentle heart and saw the good in every person she met, even when it wasn’t apparent to anyone else. Jennifer loved all living creatures large and small, especially her dog Peaches, who she had sadly lost this past winter.

She is survived by her daughters Jamie and her husband Ken Savage, Monica and her husband Zane Savage, and her son S. Keith Anderson. She is also survived by four grandchildren, Konner, Lyla, Finley and Aria; her siblings Therese Linnemeyer of Texas, Bradley Zahn of Tennessee, and William Zahn of Florida and their spouses and many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews spread across the country.

Memorial services will be held at a later date with immediate family. Donations in her memory can be made to Rutland County Humane Society, 765 Stevens Rd., Pittsford Vt., 05763. ◊
