Obituary for Grace A. Anderson
Born Grace Ann Kirk to Leon and Margaret on May 26, 1929 in Ladysmith, WI. The family and Kirk Well Drilling soon moved to the quaint Danish Community of West Denmark near Luck, WI where Grace and her four older siblings, Evelyn, Marie, Gladys and brother, Ray were raised and attended Luck High School.
Standing behind the meat counter at Anderson Fairway Store on Main Street, Grace found the love of her life... Ted, who had served in WWII on the U.S. Hospital Ship Samaritan. They wed in June of 1948. With Grace by his side, the two set off on an illustrious adventure with Ted, "The Duncan Yo-Yo Champ" demonstrating Yo-Yo's throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The Andersons settled back in Luck where two daughters were born, Teddi and Kandi.
Grace was also "Mom" to all the kids throughout her days in the Luck Public School Cafeteria. Happy summer days were spent camping with dear friends and making memories on the beautiful lakes and rivers of MN/WI.
A move to Orlando in 1978 brought years of fun and sun with numerous new friends and adventures. One of their favorites was taking young and old as their guests to the many Disney Theme Parks.
Gracie was the ultimate hostess, happiest with a house full of hungry friends and relatives who enjoyed her delicious meals and specialties! Of course, the night wouldn't be complete without singing and harmonizing in the air.
Despite a loss of vision, Grace enjoyed following sports, especially the Minnesota TWINS, cherished her times and phone calls with family and "extended" family, and loved her grand-dog, Kirby and grand-kitty, Allie.After retiring, the Andersons spent summers on the shores of Big Butternut and eventually decided to return "home" to Luck, where they were honored in 2011 as Grand Marshals of the Luck Winter Carnival/Lucky Days festivities.
Grace passed peacefully on July 4th, 60 years to the day as Ted's mother, Julia Anderson. A big thank you to the amazing staff of Lawson Manor and United Pioneer Home for their great care and patience.
There is love that will live forever, and there are memories that will shine through sorrow.Grace is survived by her beloved of 67 years, Ted Anderson; daughter, Teddi Black (Gordi); daughter, Kandi Maiden (Daryl); sisters, Evelyn Johansen and Marie Peterson; sister-in-law, Glenis Hedegaard (Gene); Goddaughter, Marnie Johansen; and many loving nieces, nephews, great and great-great nieces, great and great-great nephews; along with her "adopted" kids and grandkids.A casual summer Celebration of Grace's life will be held at Luck Lutheran Church, Luck, WI on Monday, July 20, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Luck Lutheran Church or a charity close to your heart.An online guestbook is available at www.rowefh.com or www.wicremationcenter.com . Arrangements are entrusted to Rowe Funeral Home in Luck, 715-472-2444 and the Northwest Wisconsin Cremation Center in Milltown, 715-825-5550.
