Marietta Ann Larson lived an incredible life devoted to helping others. Marietta was a leader of her Cambridge High School class of 1957 and a Nursing graduate of Hamline University. She worked many years as an RN at Cambridge Memorial Hospital at the same time Marietta was a homemaker, gardener, farmer, Elim Isanti youth group leader, and mother of three. Marietta kept all who knew her heading in the right direction. Once a nurse always a nurse – Marietta was able to diagnose and treat many physical and non-physical ailment. Kids, dogs, cows, and pigs with scrapes, cuts, or fevers were all in good hands. Later in life Marietta and Glenn traveled extensively in many directions.
Mom always had a long list of ‘things to do’ and was happier being busy than not. Something she learned from her mother.
Her incredible talent was managing activities and those around her. From gardening to livestock care, getting kids on the bus to feeding and entertaining youth group members. All who knew Marietta learned to plan ahead and stay busy.
We are deeply saddened by our loss. We were immensely blessed to have had so many wonderful years with her. We are very comforted knowing she is in a much better place. Her new mansion has a great ‘manager’.

Glenn and Marietta Larson were fantastic people and incredible supports in the two areas of responsibility I was entrusted with at Elim Baptist Church in Isanti from 1978-1982. They had single-handedly volunteered the youth program prior to my arrival, kept the church bus alive and well and managed the sound system in the new sanctuary with consistency and quality. These were good parents to Bruce/Steve/Barb, solid citizens and lived their faith through faithful actions. I grieve your loss with them and know they will be missed! Blessings from Costa Rica!

Marietta was so special to me……in many ways. I first met her in August, 1957, when we were assigned to be “room-mates” as freshman nursing students. God had lots of plans for our friendship, and by mid-October of that year, she had “cooked-up” a blind-date between Glenn’s good friend, David Hammar, and her room-mate, Leone Hammar (that would be me!) The rest of the story includes many memories, not the least of which was activities with the “Elim” youth group; 2 RN’s graduating from Hamline’s class of 1960, my marriage to David in Sept. 1960, and our “Isanti years,” from 9/60 to 5/65, when we “headed south.” David always answered the question….”when are you moving back here” (Isanti)? …with the phrase, “if you notice which way I’m going……it’s south…. I’ve had enough of those Minnesota winters!” And that move south included Peotone, IL, Ridgeway, MO, and Pleasanton, KS. David “moved” from Pleasanton to his heavenly home in January 2022, and I’m waiting for my name to be called to join them, and to “ever be with the LORD.”

Your mother was a wonderful caring woman. I worked at Memorial Hospital as a nurses aid and I blessed to work under her. She was a great teacher and a care given. She glowed with her love of God. God bless you now in your loss.

Marietta och jag fann varandra på internet genom släktforskning. Året var 2011 då hon fann mig genom att jag sökte på hennes farfar, Lars Olof Berg, ändrade namnet till Louis Anderson när han kom till USA. Då fick vi kontakt. Louis Anderson är son till Anders Larsson Berg. I Sverige på den tiden tog sönerna faderns förnamn till sitt efternamn. Louis efternamn blev Anders och son = Anderson. I Sverige stavar vi det med Anders son, alltså Andersson med två s.
Året därpå år 2012, i september, kom Marietta tillsammans med sin bror Andy och Lavonne. Cathy och John kom också.
Den 12 september 2012 hade vi en släktträff i Enånger. Den var underbar och mycket lyckad.
Den 22 juli 2012, reste jag med min familj till Minnesota. En oförglömlig resa som jag aldrig kommer att glömma. Underbara människor! Jag har alltid velat resa tillbaka och jag kommer att göra det någon gång. Jag vill träffa Cathy, John och alla andra en gång till innan jag dör. Hoppas det.
Jag sörjer Marietta, hon var nyckeln till vår släkt som hon öppnade. Jag är mycket tacksam för det. Även om jag är lite dålig på engelska språket så fann jag Marietta som en mycket underbar person. Såg att hon var mycket ärlig, bestämd och oerhört gästfri. Underbara Marietta.
Nåväl, jag har nu skrivit ner mina känslor för er alla i USA som tillhör min familj och jag hoppas att vi kommer att träffas, det skulle Marietta uppskatta.
Jag kan bara säga att jag älskar er alla inom Anderssons familj.
Vi ses snart.
