Saint Mary Frances Cloud Anderson was born on July 18, 1927 in Morganton, North Carolina to the late Deacon Nathaniel Cloud and Saint Euzell Powell Cloud and departed this life on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at her home.  

She attended the old Negro Highland High School.  She was married to the late Samuel Anderson.  She was employed in the home health care industry, sometimes as a live in assistant.  She was also a professional seamstress.  Saint Anderson’s name was put on the House of Prayer roll at the age of four and she never looked back.  She was the oldest of eight children and her mother, Saint Cloud, dedicated her children’s lives to Sweet Daddy Grace and he was their spiritual father.  Saint Anderson was a member and worker in the House of Prayer up until her health declined and she was unable to attend.  She sang with her sisters years ago in Dallas, NC as well as serving as a Sunday School Teacher there.  She was a member of the Senior Ushers in Gastonia and a G Class Worker.  She was a faithful nightly member and loved working in the House of Prayer.  She would often get in the shout, thanking and praising God for all his blessings.  She was a firm believer in the grace products and used them all the way up unto she took her flight home.  She also believed strongly in the power of prayer.  She was an outspoken sister and would tell you what was on her mind and she would as well give you praise for your good work in the House of Prayer.

She was preceded in death by her one son: Brother Michael Jerome Anderson; two sisters: Saint Colia Cassie Williams and Saint Argenia Bryant and three brothers: Saint Elder Robert Cloud, Apostle Willis Cloud and Apostle Howard Alexander Cloud.

She leaves to cherish her loving memories-her daughter and caregiver: Sister Yolanda Regina Good; two sons: Elder Russell D. Anderson and Brother Samuel Terry Anderson of New Haven, CT; one sister: Saint Missionary Eugenia Burkett of New Haven, CT and one brother: Brother Harold Eddie Cloud of Bridgeport, CT; twenty grandchildren, a number of great and great-great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews and other family and friends.
