Lavonne “Bonnie” Anderson

Lavonne was born on September 15, 1942, in Albert Lea, MN to Ruben and Igean (Trytten) Oakland. She attended Glenville High School. She was a member of the First Lutheran Church in Glenville where she was confirmed. Later she met the love of her life Curtis Anderson (Corky), and they were married on April 8, 1961, at the First Lutheran Church in Glenville. Together they had four children.

She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She loved to bake and was a great cook. If you ever wanted a Sunday dinner, there was always one waiting. Corky and Bonnie had many dogs throughout the years that they loved just like family.
