Cherryl Jean, daughter of Albert and Goldie (Wolfe) Anderson, was born January 24, 1948, at the Greene County Hospital in Jefferson, Iowa. She was baptized May 29, 1968 at the Zion Lutheran Church in Arcadia.  Cherryl attended elementary school in Bagley, then worked at Dairy Sweet and graduated from Madrid High School in 1966.  Cherryl then earned her LPN Degree at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Carroll in 1967.

   On February 9, 1968, Cherryl was united in marriage with Kenneth Boell at Zion Lutheran Church in Arcadia. Six children were born to this marriage. The couple farmed near Manilla and Cherryl worked as an LPN at St. Anthony’s Hospital and Nursing Home in Carroll.
