Anastasia passed away peacefully in her home in Woodside, CA very early on Wednesday, April 19th, 2023. She was born in Long Beach, CA on May 16, 1943 to Theodora Andersen, and Charles Anderson. She graduated from Burlingame High School, and worked at the Burlingame Wells Fargo; where she met her beloved husband Harvey Rutenberg. They married on October 3, 1971, and raised their two daughters together. Anastasia worked for some 30 years with Harvey at their family business; Anastasia's Coin Laundry. Ann was on the auxiliary for the Children’s Hospital at Stanford, and they were both on the board at Sequoia Hospital. She loved many horses in her lifetime, most recently Bleu. And, so many cats & dogs. She loved to travel, play bridge with her friends, go to the movies, and practice yoga. She traveled the world with her mom, and sister, Linda. She wasn’t a cook though. So many amazing meals with great company at so many restaurants. Numerous Jewel Balls were always so fun with mom, dad & family friends. She was predeceased by her parents, and Harvey. Anastasia is survived by her two daughters, Taren Diane Tyler, Jocelyn Anastasia Rutenberg-Semke, her “much older sister” Linda Schenck,” her grandchildren Katelynne Diane Tyler, Wade Edward Tyler, Michael Kenneth Maar, and Gabriel Harvey Edward Semke; as well as two great grandchildren; Alison & Kayne Dykstra, many nieces & nephews, her horse Bleu & many wonderful friends.
