      The Swea City Herald, April 1957

      Death came unexpectedly at 11:15 a.m. Saturday to Leslie Anderson, 36, following a stroke earlier that morning. He died in an Estherville hospital where he had been taken by ambulance.

      He was born Nov. 4, 1920 in Mitchell, S.D., the only child of Mr. and Mrs. John E. Anderson. His mother died in 1932. The family moved to Swea City in 1938, where Leslie graduated from high school in 1939.

      He served in the U. S. Army during World War II. In April 1947 he was married to Jean Erickson, Swea City, who survives. Also surviving are a daughter, Susan, 6; his father and step-mother, Mr and Mrs. John E. Anderson, Swea City, and a step-brother, Dr. G. O. Anderson, Jackson.

      Following his military service, Anderson had been employed as a mechanic at Anderson Machine Shop. Mrs. Anderson is a member of the faculty of the Swea City school.

      The sudden death has shocked the entire community.

      Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. today from Immanuel Lutheran church with the Rev. Leroy Tillman, pastor, officiating. Curtis Funeral Home was in charge.

      Burial was in Harrison township cemetery with the American Legion paying graveside military honors.
