They lived on the Anderson homestead farm just south of Larsen, Wisconsin and were blessed with five children, nine grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
Liz loved to decorative paint, and blessed many lives with her folk art works. Her largest accomplishment was the mural, "Children of the World", which is still on display at Grace Lutheran Church of Winchester.
Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, were the light of her life. Liz enjoyed traveling across the USA to spend time with them, when possible.
Fall football season was her favorite; she loved her Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers-Go, Pack, Go!! She also loved to attend events for her children and grandchildren, to cheer them on. Liz enjoyed a good competitive game of Monopoly, Scrabble, or card games. She had a passion for reading, and telling stories about Rufus the squirrel.
Her giving heart and love of God were the greatest gift she gave to all. She always put others first, would go the extra step to make sure things worked out for everyone. Liz always had a smile on her face, and approached life with a positive attitude.

I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to all of you. My family moved next door to Eugene and Liz when I was in first grade.
My memories of shucking fresh peas from the garden,to herding heifers from one pasture to the next, playing Red Light Green Light in her front yard with her children to sledding down the big hill in the woods, these are memories she help build for me and my siblings. Thank You for that,Liz. Sincerely,Judy Janz

So very sorry to hear about Liz's passing. We all grew up together in Winchester and Grace Lutheran Church. My parents bought Weggo's gas station and building next door by June Thompson. My folks turned the store into a liquor store and ran the gas station. Judy was a very good friend to my sister Debbie Fenner. She and Eugene are now together in God's loving care. Sincere sympathy.

Liz (and Eugene had been our friends since 1972. She was a loving, smart, and VERY talented lady. But more important he was a good Christian and great friend. Liz was part of our Rachel Circle for MANY years and we all will miss her greatly. Our sincere condolences to the Anderson family

This wonderful, thoughtful lady was our neighbor for many years. We know she took great pride in her family. During her visits with us on Short Road we were updated on the lives of her family and what the squirrels were up to in her yard. Liz made the best cookies and caramel corn, sharing with our family at Halloween time and for no special occasion at all! Liz loved nature and enjoyed walking our country roads from time to time. We believe she enjoyed her life to the fullest and would not have changed one thing. She is in Gods loving arms and at peace. God bless you Liz and blessings to your entire family always!
