Obituary for Dolores L. Anderson

Dolores L. Anderson was born July 10, 1923 on a farm near Lyons, Nebraska to her parents Sakel and Dora (Johnson) Johnson. She passed away June 24, 2019 at Oakland Heights in Oakland, Nebraska, at the age of 95 years.

Dolores was baptized and confirmed at the West Side Methodist Church in Oakland by Dr. Stromberg. At three years old, they moved to a farm west of Oakland, where she attended Morningside School District 17. Dolores graduated from Oakland High School in 1941. Dolores went to work at Young’s Confectionery until she moved to Omaha and worked at Omaha National Bank as an elevator operator. She also had a modeling career for General Electric Company and Omar Bakery.

Dolores was united in marriage to Alden Anderson on March 9, 1945 at the Presbyterian Church in Lyons. They lived in Blair, Nebraska where Dolores worked part time in the courthouse, while her husband Aldy worked at the shipyards. Dolores and Aldy moved back to Oakland where they lived in an apartment on Fried Avenue. They purchased a home on Thomas Street, where Dolores resided until moving to Oakland Heights Nursing Home. Dolores and Aldy were longtime members of First Lutheran Church in Oakland.

Dolores enjoyed many shopping trips with relatives and friends, coffee time with family and celebrating family birthdays. When Dolores, her cousins and aunts were together, there would be lots of laughter and fun.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Alden Anderson; parents Sakel and Dora Johnson; brother, Harlan Johnson.

She is survived by many cousins and extended family.
