Mildred Andersen

June 16, 1917 — September 6, 2012

Mildred Anna, daughter of Hans and Florence (Sornson) Hansen, was born June 16, 1917 on her parents' farm in Audubon County, Iowa. After completing rural school in Audubon County she began caring and housekeeping for many families, as far away as California. On April 14, 1940 Mildred was united in marriage with Milo Chris Andersen at Bethany Lutheran Church near Kimballton where she had been baptized and confirmed. Two children were born to this union. They lived and farmed in an area called Rorbeck. After many years on the farm they moved into Elk Horn. After the death of her husband in 1996 she moved to an apartment in Elk Horn. Mildred was a faithful member of Elk Horn Lutheran Church. She was a community volunteer, enjoyed handiwork and always had beautiful flowers. In times of need, her church and community could always count on Mildred for prayers, love and support. When she could no longer live alone, Mildred moved to the Salem Lutheran Home in 2009 and formed many close relationships with her caregivers and residents there. She died there early Thursday, September 6, 2012 at the age of 95 years, 2 months and 21 days. Preceding her in death are her parents; husband Milo Andersen and sister in law Marge Hansen. Survivors include her two children Wayne Andersen (Judy) of Estes Park, CO and Janet Johnson (Douglas) of Des Moines; four grandchildren: Holly Carr (Tom), Ryan Johnson (Kelli), Chris Andersen (K.C.) and Jennifer Oligmueller (Virgil); nine great grandchildren; brother Dallas Hansen of Elk Horn; sister Reta Larsen (Allan) of Elk Horn; numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and many special friends.
