Obituary for Mary Elizabeth Anderson

Mary Elizabeth “Betty” Beal Anderson, age 95, was born on May 18, 1922, on the family farm in Round Lake Township, to Ralph and Frieda Beal.
She attended country school and later graduated from Round Lake High School in 1940.
Betty married Russell Anderson on January 27, 1944 in Las Vegas, Nevada. After Rusty was discharged from the Army in 1946, they returned to Round Lake and farmed many years raising five children. She enjoyed sewing, gardening, baking, canning, and helping on the farm.
In 1984 she and Rusty retired and moved into the city of Round Lake. More time was spent traveling in their camper, whether for a weekend or all the way to Alaska they thoroughly enjoyed it.
She was active in the First Presbyterian Church, being recognized as an Honorary Lifetime Member. She was a member of the Round Lake American Legion Auxiliary. Betty enjoyed walking and exercising with friends at the Senior Center. She spent lots of time cross-stitching and doing jigsaw puzzles. She loved spending time with her family and many friends.
October of 2012 she moved to Ecumen Meadows in Worthington, MN. It was difficult to leave her home in Round Lake, but it didn’t take long for the residents and staff to become near and dear to her. She loved the activities and the friendships she made.
