Aline Rider Anderson

May 23, 1927 — February 15, 2021

Aline Rider Anderson, age 93, of Maryville, died February 15, 2021. She was born and raised in Dahlonega, Georgia. Aline was a dental assistant with Drs. Wright and Pate for thirty years. She worked well into her eighties at her second passion, caring for little ones at Promises Daycare. Her first passion, the care and feeding of all creatures great and small, is legendary. She opened her heart and home to her mother, sister and friends of her four daughters. She was a long time member of Everett Hills Baptist Church, naturally keeping watch over the nursery. She will be missed, though her lively stories will live on. She is preceded in death by her parents, Bessie Kendall and Herchel Rider; her siblings Vernon, Eugene, Clyde, Edward and Ernestine Rider; her son-in-law, Burton Simerly; and 21 year old cat, Cinnamon.

She is survived by her daughters Teresa (Eddie) Matthews, Elaine Creighton, DeeAnn Simerly, and Lisa (Adair Allen) Anderson; grandchildren, Pam (Danny) Luce, Melanie (Dana Guest) Matthews, Nathan (Jocelyn Wertz) Hutter, Sebastian Hutter and Jennifer (Jeremy Haven) Simerly; and four great-grandchildren, Storm, River, Indigo and Calla. Special thanks to those who graciously cared for her, Bayley Cook and Betty Newman.
