Anderson, according to a Chiefs Cheer statement, “was loved and adored by her teammates, fans, and strangers who were never strangers for very long.” “After her time as a cheerleader, she continued to share her love of dance and Chiefs Cheer by serving in an alumni role on game day, practices, and at events,” according to a statement released by the news organization.

“We’ll miss her lovely enthusiasm, wonderful energy, and glitter. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones. We will cherish every moment we had with her. We will announce how we will continue to honour her memory at a later date.

”Anderson was also a software engineer, according to her obituary, “making significant contributions to improving healthcare, including being awarded a patent for developing software that assesses the risk of post-partum hemorrhage.”

She is survived by her husband, Clayton Anderson, whom she married in July 2021, her parents, Bertha and Burnette Johnson, brother, Corey Johnson, and several other family members. Her obituary also highlighted her little son, James Charles, who died before her. Clayton Anderson told Fox4 that his wife developed a fever after their daughter was stillborn. He further stated that she battled sepsis, which resulted in organ failure and three surgeries.

“I feel lost,” Clayton Anderson stated. “There’s a lot of people in this house and it feels empty.”Sepsis, according to the Mayo Clinic, happens when the body’s response to an infection is abnormal, leading the organs to function abnormally.

Sepsis can develop to septic shock, which causes blood pressure to decrease and organ damage, perhaps resulting in death. Black maternal mortality rates have historically been high in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, black women are nearly three times more likely than white women to die following childbirth.
