LONG BEACH — Anchen White Jones of Long Beach, Washington passed away peacefully in her sleep at home Feb. 25, 2018. She was 82 years old.

Having spent many of her family summers and holidays on the Oregon and Washington coast, Anchen relocated to the Long Beach Peninsula upon retirement.
Anchen took pleasure in many activities, most of all spending time with her many friends playing bridge, pinochle, and canasta. Anchen enjoyed playing Words-with-Friends, traveling to Mexico, taking cruises and spoiling her loving cat, Chance. Anchen loved planting flowers in her yard and feeding humming birds. She relished giving and was always very generous to her family and friends, as well as to her favorite charities.
