Mabel Sylvia Shelley, the daughter of Ed and Ida (Sletta) Shelley, was born March 31, 1917 in Lake Hanska Township. She graduated from Madelia High School and Mankato Teachers College. Mabel was united in marriage to Arnold Anderson on March 27, 1945 at Lake Hanska Lutheran Church. She taught in area rural schools for eight years, Hanska Public School for eight years, and was a kindergarten and substitute teacher for eight years. After her husband's death in 1996, she continued to make her home in Hanska and became a resident of Oak Hills Living Center in January 2007. Mabel was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Hanska, WLCA, the Sons of Norway, Delta Kappa Gamma and the Retired Teachers of Brown County. She was an active volunteer for these and many other organizations. Mabel was well known in the community for her love of flowers, writing letters, and the many batches of krumkake she made for family and friends. We will miss her positive attitude and caring ways.
