Perham, MN

Judy Emma Andersen, age 78 of Perham, MN died Tuesday, September 14, 2021 in her home under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley and her family.

Judy was born October 26, 1942 in Bottineau, ND the daughter of Arthur and Clara (Kaeding) Kiesow. She was united in marriage to William “Bill” Andersen for 48 wonderful years. Judy worked in her early years at Red Owl stores in St. Paul, MN. Bill and Judy moved to Fargo, ND in 1982 as Bill continued his food career with Red Owl. In 1984, they purchased an apartment building in Moorhead, MN which Judy successfully managed until 2011. In 2003, they sold their Fargo home and Aitkin, MN lake cabin and moved to their Little Pine Lake home near Perham. Judy thoroughly enjoyed the lake and her real love of beautiful flower gardens. Bill’s brother Mike visited often and enjoyed the gardening and fishing fun. Judy and Bill were blessed with their son Steven (fiancé Kathy) who has two wonderful children, Zech (Nicole) and Melissa (Dustin) Johnson. Melissa and Dustin have two wonderful children, Kynslee and Kade. Judy and Bill traveled to 20 different countries over the years on vacations and cruises. She also really enjoyed their frequent visits to Las Vegas and Laughlin, NV. Locally, their favorite casino was Shooting Star in Mahnomen, MN. They enjoyed the food, gambling, and concerts monthly for years. They met many wonderful friends and employees and appreciated their friendships. Judy’s other enjoyment was wearing her sparkling high heels and fashionable clothing.

Judy’s family sincerely thanks the wonderful doctors, nurses, and staff at the Roger Maris Cancer Center for three years of service and compassion and Hospice of the Red River Valley for providing comfort to both she and her family in Judy’s final days.
