Obituary for Evelyn Anderson

Evelyn Frances Wendt Anderson, age 92 of Boone, Iowa and formerly, Omaha, Nebraska passed on at Westhaven Community on March 9, 2019 and will be greatly missed.

Evelyn was born in Omaha, Nebraska on October 13, 1926, the daughter of Herman Harry and Frances Dora Jageman Wendt. She graduated from South High School, Omaha, Nebraska in 1944. In 1961, Evelyn married Elmer V. Anderson.

Evelyn had worked at Fairmont Foods in Omaha for many years. After moving to Boone in the late 1960’s, in addition to managing her household, raising her son and, later, her granddaughter, she worked in the soy bean fields for area farmers until her retirement. She passed her work ethic integrity onto her family through her dedication to her daily duties. In her free time, she enjoyed family and friends.

Evelyn is preceded in death by her parents, Herman and Frances, by her former spouse Elmer Anderson, by her brother Richard H Wendt, by her sister Rosalie M Wendt, and, by her son, Mick (Brian Paul) Anderson.

She is survived by three children, Linda Kurtz Houle and spouse Clyde Houle of Antioch, California, Larry Kurtz of Saint Leon, Germany, and Randy Kurtz and spouse Shelly of Boone, Iowa; two siblings, Dorothy Reimers of Omaha, Nebraska and Ronald Wendt of Southern California; daughter in-law Jo Lynn Nunally, Grandchildren, Laurel Garces and Family, Christopher Robarchek and Family, Justin Kurtz and Family, Serina Kurtz and Family, Granddaughter Micki Lynn Anderson and Great-grandson Derek Anderson-Vetter and her great-great grandchildren and beloved dear friend Ruth E. Luecht

Evelyn was baptized a Lutheran as an infant. On August 21, 2015, she requested to be baptized again, as an adult, by Pastor Jeff McDowell who has been at her side all of her years at Westhaven. A heartfelt thank you from Evelyn’s family to Weshaven Community, Suncrest Hospice, and Soderstrum-Reimers Funeral Home
