Anderson, Lizzie (3 JUN 1851 - 7 MAR 1929)

Mrs. John Anderson, one of the pioneers of the Nasonville neighborhood in Wood County, died at her home in Chili, Clark County, Wis., Thursday afternoon, March 7, 1929, aged 77 years, 9 months and 4 days. She had been sick about two weeks.

Deceased, whose maiden name was Lizzie Blake, was born in Kennebec, Maine, June 3, 1851. She came with her parents to Nasonville, where she was married to John Anderson 59 years ago. They settled on wild land in the town of Rock in Wood County, and there developed a fine farm. In 1919 they sold the farm and bought a house in Chili, where they lived thereafter. Mr. Anderson died Dec. 12, 1922.

To Mr. and Mrs. Anderson nine children were born, eight of whom are living, namely: Mrs. Louis Florence of Tacoma, Wash.; Eugene Anderson, Denver, Colo.; Mrs. Clarence Breed, Louisville, Ky.; Clinton Anderson and Mrs. John Ford of Minneapolis; Mrs. Peter Paulson of Neillsville; Mrs. Duncan Cattanach and Fred Anderson of Nasonville. One daughter, Mrs. Arlene Schultz, died in 1918. Mrs. Anderson leaves also 17 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Anderson was a fine type of pioneer woman. She was a kind and loving wife and mother and a helpful neighbor, and did well her part in the strenuous work that a pioneer home and community needed.

The funeral was held Monday at the Methodist Church in Chili, Rev. Irish of Lindsey officiating. Burial took place in the Nasonville Cemetery.
