CHICAGO, IL (December 20) – A memorial service will be conducted at 1:30  p.m. on Saturday, December 27, for Hazel Anderson (Mrs. Harold E.), the  first full-time administrator for Covenant Women Ministries (CWM).  Anderson died on Friday in Northbrook.

Craig Swanson, pastor of Northbrook Covenant Church, will officiate at  Saturday’s service. Internment will be on Monday at Bethesda Covenant  Church in Rockford, where the 98-year-old Anderson was a longtime  parishioner. Don Njaa will officiate at Monday’s service.

Shortly after her husband died, Anderson assumed the office of executive  director of CWM on February 1, 1967, beginning a five-year term,  according to CWM Executive Minister Ruth Hill. According to records from Covenant Women Heritage: 1916-1980, “she had chaired Survey  Committee, understood its provisions and the implementations necessary  to make the changes that significantly restructured the organization.  She established the national office, wrote the handbook for local  organizations and generally led Covenant Women in Unified Plan of  structure. She also strengthened the emphasis on social programs.”

Among other things, she began a Special Interest Missionaries program in  1968, a ministry connecting local women ministries with career women  missionaries in Covenant churches.

More information will be posted to this Covenant news report as it  becomes available.
