Obituary of Oscar P. Anderson –

Oscar Phillip Anderson was born in Cokato, Minnesota, September 4, 1889, and died in St. Francis hospital, Grand Island, Nebraska, March 21, 1928, aged 38 years, 6 months and 17 days.

In 1904 he moved to Iowa, and from there in 1908 he went to join the U. S. Navy. After two years of service, he came in 1910 to Greeley county, Nebraska. Here he lived until called away by death. In early boyhood he was baptized in the Swedish Lutheran church.

On September 3, 1916, he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Kinney of Wolbach. To this union three children were born, Lois, Howard, and Doris Jean, aged respectively 10, 7, and 3.

Besides his wife and children he leaves to mourn his death, his mother Mrs. Anna Anderson, two brothers, Bart and Obel; two half brothers, Charles Nelson of Messina, Iowa, and Andrew Nelson of Brayton, Iowa, and numerous other relatives.

He was a kind son, an affectionate husband and father, a good neighbor, unselfish in his life and thoughtful of others. He enjoyed the respect of all who knew him. The entire community unites in deepest sympathy for the stricken family. He realized that his departure was near and said he was prepared to go.

Funeral services were held at Trinity Lutheran Church, Saturday afternoon, March 24, at 2 o'clock. Burial was in Hillside Cemetery.
