Another year remembered Margaret. Protect us and your family from above. You are missed and thought of often. I still remember your laugh as we would work the busy weekends at Spruce Run and then have Miller Lites after work. You were always a good friend. ♥️♥️

Our daughter, Margaret, will always be in our thoughts and hearts. As we remember her we think of the daughter who loved her Lord and as a result loved all of nature, who was a friend to everyone, who had the courage to try new things, who had the determination to achieve her dreams ,who had the ability to make everyone feel better and who grew up to be a loving wife and mother. We miss her and are blessed that she is our daughter.

Memories of Margaret are still constant and powerful because that is the impact she left in my life. She was fiercely determined, loyal, and an ever present smile. All of which are so greatly missed everyday. I think of her family often and know that they miss these moments too because no one was like Margaret and no one will ever be.

A friend always

Margaret it just seems like yesterday you were sitting in the break room of CHOH. You were there because you were expecting you first child and were on limited duty. We all knew you hated being in the office but you still had a smile on your face that lit up the room. You are one of the best people I have ever worked with and we will never forget you. God bless you and may he comfort and be with your family.

There was not a whisper of wind On that cloudless New Year’s Day
When your smile and your light Was taken away
From those of us who loved you, And from those whom you never knew
Your heroics and your bravery came shining through.
You will always be remembered, for your devoted and selfless ways.
You will never be forgotten from that day, until the end of days.

We ask for 1 minute of silence, for our forever 741…

Rest in Peace, Margaret!

I remember this incident for two reasons: First, I lived in Ashford WA in the early '50's when my dad worked at Mt. Rainier. Second, because it was such a cold-blooded incident. I pray that the Kritsch's memory of their daughter will be assuaged by the wonderful memories of her. She will always be remembered by those who know of the sacrifices of the Thin Blue Line.

Hello again my friend. As I strap on my vest and head out on patrol, I will think about you on the anniversary of your passing. I will remember as always the day I met you at the lake. Working together, sharing laughs, having a beer with the crew. What a fun summer we had. Id give anything to see that smile and have one more beer with you. Watch over us and save me a spot up there Love ya!

I watched this story on YouTube. Its called Heroes Behind the Badge. The guy had no camping gear, only guns and body armor. They believe that he was going to just go in there and go on a shooting spree. What Margaret did was eliminate that threat by blocking the road and putting her life on the line and in doing so she paid the ultimate price. Rest in Piece Ranger Anderson. You are a hero. God bless you and your family.

Five years ago on New Year's Day our beloved daughter Margaret gave her life to protect the lives of others. She remains, as always, held closely in our hearts. Grief over the years changes but it is still there. Grief is not a sign of a lack of faith or strength of character but the result of how much you have loved. This is the third year that a fund we established in her memory has provided needed equipment and/or training of our local Sherriff's Department. Our daily prayers are that all law enforcement officers return home safely at the end of their shifts.
