Ane Balle Andersen Asper, 79, passed away Tuesday, May 16, 2017.

Born April 20,1938 to Julius and Margrethe Balle Andersen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Ane was raised in Denmark to the age of 10 at which time her family immigrated to the United States where they made their home in Salt Lake City, Utah. She continued to speak her native language fluently all her life.

Graduated from West High in 1957 and then attended LDS Business College.
She married Alfred Norman Asper in the Salt Lake Temple June 9, 1959. Later divorced.

Ane had a long employment history, from scooping ice cream at Snelgroves on South Temple to working as a secretary at ZCMI, she always kept herself busy. For more than 40 years she worked alongside her brother Borge in his custom photo house. Later in her career she assumed the helm of her father's photoengraving business, Utah Engraving.

Ane loved to cook. She always set a beautiful table and made food to match, and especially prepare native dishes. During her many years at Borge's, she would put on a Christmas party for clients. Each year it grew in size and fame. Ane always had a special dish or extra treat set aside to make everyone feel special. Ane rarely used recipes, but cooked by feel and taste. She always made excellent food that was difficult to duplicate.

Ane's true love has always been her family. She used her hard work, love of food, and big heart to care for her family. Her parents, brother, kids and grandkids were never far away and always felt her love.

Ane loved to travel to her homeland and loved to share her heritage with her family and those around her. She was often asked to prepare authentic Danish dishes for different church, school or social events.
She always served faithfully in whatever capacity to which she was called in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The gospel brought her family to America and she remained true and faithful to the church throughout her life.

She is survived by sons; Ricky J Asper (Cheryl), Salt Lake City; Mark W Asper (LeAnne), Salina, Utah; and daughter Connie Muir (ElRay) Salt Lake City, Utah.
Grandchildren; Johnathan Mark Asper, Levi Scott Asper, Sydney Ane Asper, Mitchell J Asper, Max Samuel Asper, Anita Muir, Curtis Muir, John Muir, Jennette Hales, Charissa Parkinson, Tom Muir, and 9 great-grandchildren.
