Alice Caroline (Nelson) Anderson passed away on August 18, 2022, at Oak Crest Senior Housing in Roseau, MN at the age of 95.

Alice was born on December 11, 1926, to Alfred and Annie (Williamson) Nelson near Wannaska, MN. She attended the Edberg School in Mickinock Township through eighth grade and also attended Roseau High School. As a young girl she was happiest when she could be outside helping her dad milking the cows and doing other farm chores.

On April 16, 1947, Alice was united in marriage to Herman Anderson. After their marriage, Herman and Alice started their own dairy and grain farm near Wannaska and were blessed with four children – Karen, Harlan, Susan, and Daniel. In the early sixties the dairy cows were sold and Alice went to work at Polaris Industries. Later she worked at the Roseau Hospital as well as other places.

Alice had a strong faith in God, a great sense of humor and enjoyed caring for other people at the hospital and as a chiropractic assistant. She also enjoyed singing, dancing, visiting relatives, friends, and neighbors. She especially enjoyed going to the Rams hockey games, watching the Minnesota Wild games on TV and (watching) those games on the radio when her eyesight failed.
