Callie Ruth Anderson, 97 years old, a long time Marco Island resident with her husband, Captain Ray Anderson, passed peacefully from this world with many family members by her side on December 15, 2021 in Maryville, Tennessee. Callie was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, lived for many years in Miami where she and Captain Ray raised their children and moved permanently to Marco Island in 1981. Previously they spent many weekends at their Mariner condominium and the South Seas North before building their home on Bimini Avenue. There they enjoyed many family gatherings and pontoon boat trips from their dock out to the Marco River. Callie became an accomplished stained glass and porcelain dolls artist, many items of which members of her family enjoy today. She and Captain Ray truly enjoyed living on Marco and their many "tennis player" friends. They saw many changes to the Island since first visiting the Marco Island Hotel and Villas in the late 1960s.
