Deborah Ann Anderson

November 17, 1954 — July 28, 2022

On July 28, 2022, Deborah Ann Anderson, age 67, passed away unexpectedly in Carlisle, PA. She was born at Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, MD, on November 17, 1954, to Day K and Barbara (Snyder) Grimes. She married friend and love Richard Anderson of Carlisle, and they enjoyed 22 years together. You could often find them spending their weekends at Williams Grove Speedway and spoiling their cat Benji or, as they lovingly call him, Mr.Kitty.

Deborah was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her son Eric Heishman of Carlisle and especially loved her role as Gigi to Kaylee, Ava, Sophia, and Vera. She spent many afternoons swimming with her beloved grandchildren and teaching them how to sew, make crafts, and paint. Deborah dedicated her life to her family, and they cherished every moment spent with her.

Deborah graduated from Cumberland Valley High School, class of ‘72 and Empire Beauty School as a cosmetology instructor. Deborah worked as a licensed cosmetologist her entire career, which suited her selfless nature and giving heart. Deborah was also gracious with her time and efforts within her community.

Deborah is survived by her husband, Richard Anderson, her son, Eric Heishman, his wife, Megan Heishman, as well as granddaughters Kaylee Ann Heishman, Ava Rhyse Heishman, Sophia Day Heishman and Vera Charlotte Heishman; her stepdaughters Tori and Stevie and their family. She is also survived by her brother Richard Grimes and his wife Sherry Grimes of North Carolina as well as nephews, Brandon Day Grimes and Jeremy Whitley and niece Melissa Castillo. She was preceded in death by her parents, Day K and Barbara (Snyder) Grimes, and her sister, Kathy Yeakley.
