Obituary for Katherine "Katie" Anderson

Katherine “Katie” Ann (Peters) Anderson was born to Carl and Anna (Ropers) Peters on July 6, 1928, on a farm southwest of Oakland, Nebraska. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in West Point, attended grade school at Von Essen School District #40 and graduated from Oakland High School in 1945.

On her 19th birthday in 1947, Katie was united in marriage to Dwain Roger Anderson at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in West Point. They rented a farm northwest of Oakland for a few years before moving to and later buying the Joe Friedstrom farm south of Oakland. In 2010, they bought a home on Aurora Avenue and moved into town.

After high school, Katie worked at the Oakland Gas Company and often helped her cousin, Evelyn Benne, at the Oakland Greenhouse. In the mid 1970’s, Dwain and Katie formed Dwain R. Anderson & Sons, Inc., an agricultural construction business, with Katie being its secretary/bookkeeper.

Katie was an active member of Salem Covenant Church where she served as a Hi-League youth counselor and on the Memorial Committee, as well as planned and participated in many women’s events. Katie served on the Burt County Election Board for decades and was a member of the Harmony Circle neighborhood club and Oakland Hospital Auxiliary.

Katie was known for her beautiful flower and vegetable garden, providing bouquets for many special occasions. She also enjoyed collecting flow blue dishes, painting with oils, reading, cheering on the Cornhuskers at Memorial Stadium and hosting family and friends in her always seasonally decorated farm home.

On November 1, 2018, Katie left the Oakland Heights Nursing Home and was reunited in heaven with her parents and two brothers, Harvey and Roland Peters.

Surviving Katie are her husband of 71 years, Dwain; sons Tim (Debbie) and Cal (Sara) of Oakland; Kevin (Diane) of Arlington, Texas; Chad (Lisa) of Pierce, Nebraska; and daughter, Anna (Paul) Anderson of Oakland.
