Erma Joan Anderson

Erma Joan Anderson, 87, of White City, KS passed away October 16, 2021. She was born Oct 4, 1934 to George and Lillian Hultgren on a farm south of White City, KS. Erma attended the Rural Kitchen Elementary School then she graduated from White City High School in 1953. Erma married Delbert Anderson with a garden wedding on June 6, 1954 on her parent's farm. After Delbert was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force, they moved to a farm in White City. Erma was a homemaker her entire life. She was proud of her baking, sewing, knitting, gardening and her peach orchard. Delbert and Erma enjoyed square dancing with a group in Council Grove for about 40 years. She made her dresses and Delbert's shirts to match.

Delbert and Erma attended the White City Christian Church until they felt called to seek out the surrounding Christian Churches in Council Grove, Herington and Junction City.

Erma was preceded in death by her husband Delbert, infant son Greg, sisters Edna Mae Joy and Doris Roberts, brothers Leo Hultgren and Eugene Hultgren.

She is survived by her brother Wilfred Hultgren of Wichita, KS; four children, Steven (Maridella) Anderson of Gays Mills, WI, Sondra (Lyle) Williamson of Valley Center, KS, Don (Brenda) Anderson of Dwight, KS, and Sylvia (Stan) Worcester of Castle Rock, CO; 12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

At this time, services are pending with Sawyer Funeral Home and will be announced at a later date.
