Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Tacoma, Washington, but grew up on the farm my Grandfather built in North Dakota. I am currently retired living in East Central Minnesota. I have been doing family history research for 30+ years.

You are welcome to use any of the pictures I have taken, and I would be happy to transfer any memorial to you as long as it is not my family.

Please remove the words "Temporary Memorial" at the top of the memorial that I had placed in my memorial until they were merged. I have removed all the duplicate photos left over from the merge.

Thank you for your help.

Lois Irene Anderson was born on September 29, 1920 in Akron, Colorado. Lois was the daughter of Golda (Purdy) and Henry Rodenborg. She was baptized in her faith in 1920. The Rodenborgs moved from Colorado to Ada, Minnesota, where she graduated from High School on July 2, 1936.
Lois was united in marriage to Emil W. Mattkins on November 11, 1942. This marriage was blessed with two children, Wesley Emil and Allen Henry. They shared nine years of marriage until Emil passed away in 1951.
Lois then moved to Comfort Township, near Mora, Minnesota. This is where she met and married John Danielson. This marriage was blessed with 35 years, until cancer took him away.
In May 1992, she was united in marriage to Clifford Anderson. They lived in Almelund, Minnesota, and were together for eight years until he passed away.
During Loisís younger years she worked for Fingerhut Corp. Then in the 1970s she worked for EPC and retired in 1982. Lois was very active in the American Legion and VFW auxiliaries, the Democratic National Party and 4-H. Lois loved to sew, bake, crochet, knit and quilt. Her hands were never idle. She crocheted many hats and scarves which she donated to many different organizations.
She also loved to garden and canned just about anything you could eat. From 1985 to 1990 she and her husband, John, were part of the Foster Grandparents program, working with the handicapped and special needs children.
Lois passed away on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at the First Light Health Systems in Mora, Minnesota, at the age of 91. She is survived by Allen and Marian (Anderson) Mattkins and Nina (Teich) Mattkins, five grandchildren, Renee (Mattkins) Hantge, Allen Mattkins, Tanya (Mattkins) Vacek, Aaron Mattkins and Anson Mattkins. She had nine great-grandchildren.
Lois is preceded in death by her parents, her son Wesley, three brothers, Harold, Lyman, and Everette, and one sister Ruby, many nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
A Memorial Service was held on Wednesday, June 20 at Calvary Lutheran Church in Mora with Rev. Douglas Larson officiating.† Music was provided by Betty Smith and Jon Ekstrom.† Urn bearers were Loisís grandchildren.
Internment was at Oakwood Cemetery in Mora.
Arrangements were handled by Akkerman-Ingebrand Funeral Home in Mora.† Condolences may be posted at

Besides changing the names and dates on the memorial, would you please add the obituary to her bio?

Cora Stickney
I believe you have tracked the wrong Cora Stickney. The Cora Stickney, who was the daughter of Sarah and Joseph, married Lewis J. Gibson. Both Sarah and Lewis were born in Michigan. Her brother, William Joseph Stickney, was born on 5 Mar 1879 in Michigan. Their mother and father (Sarah E Hoose and Joseph Stickney) were both born in New York. In 1920, Cora, Lewis, and William were living at 302 51st Ave. W, in Duluth, Mn. I believe it was a boarding house. Both men worked for Alger Smith Company (lumber).

Philip Henry Hank Leininger
I was wondering if you could transfer Philip Leininger over to me. He was my 2nd great-grandfather. His son, Earl Francis was my great-grandfather.

Thank you so much for sending me the link to her parents. The Stranahan family history has been a passion of mine and I love it when I can connect anyone to them. RLE

Josephine and Edwin Wesack
I received your request to change the names of the Memorials for Josephine and Edwin Wesack. I have no connection to these individuals. I created their memorials while filling some photo requests for the Wesack family in the same cemetery. So I was just going by what was on the headstones. If you are confident that these are really their middle names and that the corrections you sent me are accurate I will make the changes.

Let me know.
