Angeline Lucille Anderson was born April 13, 1919 (minutes after her twin sister Adeline) to Helmer and Ida (Haldorson) Markison at their home in rural Lakeville, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed at West Christiania Lutheran Church. She attended school at the Eureka 47 country school. Her mother died when she was nine years old. She often remarked about the wonderful job her Dad did in raising his young family. She met her future husband, Arnold Anderson, at Christiania where they were married on May 1, 1937 shortly after her 18th birthday. They made their home on the Anderson farm in New Market Township where Angie was a homemaker. And a wonderful “home maker” she was! She was an amazing baker. The coffee pot was always on and they entertained family, friends and neighbors most every Sunday afternoon. The Sunday afternoon tradition has continued and many family members can be found “at home” each Sunday. She was an expert lefse maker. Arnold and Angie raised four children. Angeline’s greatest sadness was the death of their son Paul when he was four years old. Once all their children were in school she began to work away from home. She first worked as a domestic helper in the homes of several families in Lakeville where she soon became part of these families as well. But her long term career was at Enggren’s Grocery store in Lakeville where she became a cashier and friend to many customers over her more than 25 years there. Arnold preceded her in death on April 10, 1994 and Angie remained on the farm for several more years before moving to a smaller home in Lakeville. In 2010 Millstream Commons in Northfield became her home. She has lived at Three Links in Northfield since 2013. Our families’ deepest gratitude goes to the loving staff at Three Links. Angeline passed away on April 17, 2017.
Angeline was a lifelong member of Christiania Church where she was active in the circles, Ladies Aid, and many service groups. In later years she was often the “driver” making sure her friends could attend church. Angie was a great model of kindness, generosity and humble service to others. She loved to spend time with neighbors and friends and her family. Several grandchildren and a niece made their home with her when they were in transition. Angie was easy to love since she showed such great love to others. She was proud of her children and grandchildren and her great grandchildren always brought a smile to her face!
Angie is lovingly remembered by her children, David Anderson and his wife Louise who live on the family farm in New Market Township. Nancy and husband Norman Jensen who live in rural Faribault. Jane and husband Bernard Ward of Lakeville and Julie and her husband Al Meyer of Owatonna. Grandma Angie will be missed by her 13 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren as well as many friends and family.
Angie was preceded in death by her husband, Arnold; son Paul Michael in 1951; parents Helmer and Ida Markison; brother, Milton Markison; twin sister, Adeline Larson and son-in-law, Alan Sansgaard.
