Loretta Jane (Norgaard) Anderson, age 90 passed away Sunday, January 9, 2022 at Gunderson Tri-County Hospital in Whitehall, WI, surrounded by family.
Loretta was born December 30, 1931 in the Town of Gale, Tremp. County, WI, to Oscar and Lilah Norgaard. The Norgaards moved to Osseo in the late 1940s and Loretta graduated from High School in 1950. In June, 1950, Loretta was united in marriage to Lloyal H. Anderson. They parented 3 children during their union: Linda, Rebecca & Larry. Loretta kept herself very busy raising their children. She also held employment over the years at the Osseo Egg Factory, bookkeeper/dispatcher for the family trucking business, bookkeeper/secretary for Midwest Realty Company and owner of the Swing Inn in Osseo for 18 years with Lloyal. Retirement in 1991 brought several enjoyable years at their lake home in Chetek. Later, they returned to Pigeon Falls to be near family and friends. One of the most difficult changes for Loretta in life was the last few years and allowing others to do for her, rather than her doing and waiting on others for so many years.
Loretta’s memory lives on in many. She is survived by 2 children: Rebecca (Richard) Grangaard & Larry (Dawn Smart) Anderson. 8 grandchildren: J.B. (Leanne), Aaron (Denna), Lori (Rob), Christopher, Chilanna (Andy), Austin (Miranda),Tatum and 10 great grandchildren.
Loretta is also survived by two sisters: Judy Olson, Osseo and Shirley Anderson, Milton.
Loretta is preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Lloyal; her daughter, Linda; and sister, Gladys Vold.
