J. Elmer Anderson
J. Elmer Anderson passed away peacefully with his family at his side on Thursday, September 15th, 2016, at the age of 94 years. His memory is cherished by his wife of 71 years, Loraine; son, Barry (Sandra); son, Brent (Shelly); daughter, Sharrie (Jerry); granddaughter, Lisa (Mike Benson, Makayla, Kallum); granddaughter, Erin (JD Martin, Alexis, Owen); sister, Lenore; as well as his nieces and nephew. Elmer was born March 7th, 1922 on the family farm in the Ardill district. The farm was where his heart was. He was raised on the farm and took it over from his father. Elmer then passed it on to his son. Although he no longer farmed, he still watched the weather and wondered how the crops were doing. He took pride in the Century Family Farm Award marking the farms establishment in 1908.
If tears could build a stairway
And memories build a lane
We would walk to heaven to greet you
And bring you home again.
We will miss you always.
