Obituary for Jean Olson Anderson

Jean R. Anderson (Olson), 94, of Lilydale, Minnesota, formerly of Route 1 Blue River, Excelsior and Richland Center, Wisconsin died Monday, April 15, 2019 in St. Paul, Minnesota. She was born on September 25, 1924 in Richland Center, the daughter of Carl and Idelle (Garner) Koch. She attended Richland Center High School, and subsequently Richland Normal School where she obtained a teaching certificate and taught elementary students in a one-room school for a short time. Subsequently, she met and married Alton A. Olson on September 17, 1948 at Five Points Lutheran Church. They lived their entire marriage in Route 1 Blue River and Excelsior until Alton’s death on December 16, 1989. Jean was a housewife, homemaker and worked in retail clothing in Richland Center. She later married Gordon Anderson and lived in Richland Center until Gordon’s death on April 7, 2013. She subsequently moved to Lilydale, Minnesota to be close to her son, Mark. She will always be remembered as a very active member of Five Points Lutheran Church where she was involved in many activities. Moreover, all of her family remembers her as a wonderful soft-spoken gentle person who enjoyed life and loved to cook wonderful food for her family.
