Donald Eldon Anderson, age 88 of Montello, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 13, 2015 at the VA Hospital in Madison. He was born on February 22, 1927 in Wautoma to Russell and Olive (Simenson) Anderson. Donald grew up in the Wautoma area. He graduated from Wautoma High School and then enlisted in the U.S. Navy during WW II. After serving, he returned to Wautoma and bought a farm in Mt. Morris. Besides farming, he also worked construction and at Rockwell Standard for several years. After a period of time, Donald decided to train race horses and moved to Claremore, Oklahoma. After a few years, he turned to home improvements making many friends in Oklahoma but began to miss Wisconsin. Donald returned and settled in Montello where he assisted his eldest son, David at Fox River Feed Mill until his health began to decline. He then moved to The Residences Assisted Living in Montello.

According to Donald’s wishes, no service will be held.

Donald’s family would like to thank the nurses and staff at the VA Hospital hospice wing for taking such good care of our dad.

Jackie and Jody will never be able to thank our brother, David enough for all the loving care he gave our dad over the last several years.

Miss Me But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the day
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared–
Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the Maker’s plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows
In doing good deeds–
Miss me, but let me go.
