Congratulations to long-time Fargo resident, Helen M. Anderson, on her 100th-year birthday, November 17. She moved to Fargo with her husband, Marvin T. Anderson, in 1942. Mr. Anderson, deceased in 2000, graduated from NDSU and became the Head of the Pharmacy at Dakota Clinic.
Prior to moving to Fargo, Helen taught second grade in Minnesota and waited for her husband to return from WWII. They raised their family primarily in south Fargo, where Helen was active in Olivet Lutheran Church, through Stephen’s Ministry and various Circles. She was active in Fargo philanthropic organizations, such as PEO and Music Club.
Through her interest and experiments in art—painting, working in fabric, creating salt dough, etc.—she enhanced her family’s lifestyle, and she remained a life-long, talented quilter and gardener. She now resides in Eventide Assisted Living in south Fargo.
