Anderson, Roy O. (5 FEB 1898 – 13 JAN 1966)
The body of Roy O. Anderson was found lying on the sidewalk in front of his home by neighbors early Thursday morning with a medical check showing that he suffered a fatal heart attack while using a snow blower on his sidewalk.
Funeral services were held at two o’clock Saturday afternoon, Jan. 15 from the Alliance Church, Owen. Former parish pastor, Rev. James Stone, now of Hibbing, Minn., officiated, with burial being made at Riverside Cemetery.
Ernest Mowery, Wesley Sigglekow, Art Karrow, C.E. Beck, Axel Lindgren and Gene Adams served as pallbearers.
Born Feb. 5, 1898 at DeSoto, Wis., Roy Orville Anderson, 68, later moved to Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), where he and the former Irene Hurley were united in marriage on Dec.. 6, 1922.
Shortly thereafter the couple moved to Owen, where they’ve made their home these past 44 years, with Mr. Anderson being engaged in the contracting business. Of all his material accomplishments, undoubtedly his prize was the Alliance Church, from which he was buried. He was the contractor on this project when the new church was built in 1951 and later the parsonage.
In addition to his wife, survivors include three daughters, Mrs. Lemuel (Vivian) Ford, Grand Island, Neb.; Mrs. Oral (Doris) Baxter, Curtiss; and Miss Ethel Anderson, Minneapolis; six sons, Roy, Madison; Lauri and Leonard, Minneapolis, Robert, Sturgis, S.D.; Delmar, Seneca, Ill., and Darrel, serving with the U.S. Marines at San Diego, Calif., and 31 grandchildren.
