Harriet A. Anderson

Harriet A. Anderson of Waukesha passed away on Monday, May 11, 2015, at the age of 88 years. She was born in White Creek, the daughter of Ira and Nina Dunn.

She was a member of First United Methodist Church in Waukesha. Harriet worked for RTE Company, which became Cooper Electrical. She was a great crafter: knitting, crocheting, quilting and sewing. Her grandchildren knew her as the “Big Cookie Baker.” She loved flowers and gardening around her home. In her younger years, she enjoyed sports: bowling, golf and square dancing with her late husband.

Harriet will be sadly missed by her children, Nina (Rick) Schlidt of Hartland, Amy (Doug) Limburg of Utah and Rita (Steven) Wrighton of East Troy, and stepchildren, Ron (MaryJane) May of Ohio, Sandra Bilsky of Ohio and Jim (Karen) May of Florida. She is further survived by 10 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; siblings Paul Dunn of Watertown, Ben Dunn of California, Doris Portz of Verona and Tom Dunn of California; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, Owen Anderson; second husband, Claude Arnold; and brothers, Robert and Glen Dunn.

A visitation will be held from 1:00 p.m. until the time of the 2:00 p.m. funeral service on Monday, May 18, at Wisconsin Memorial Park, Family Center (West North) Chapel, 13235 W. Capitol Drive, Brookfield, WI 53008. The Rev. Dan Schwerin will be officiating. The burial will take place privately.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in Harriet’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter for Research, 620 S. 76th St., Suite 160, Milwaukee, WI 53214, would be appreciated.

The family would like to thank Oakhill Terrace, Linden Court, East Troy Manor and, as of late, SeasonsHospice, for the wonderful comfort and care they showed Harriet throughout the years.
