Marion Anna Anderson was born on June 27, 1931 on the family farm in Clear Lake, WI, the daughter of August & Bertha (Gerlot) Brihn.  She grew up in Clear Lake  and graduated from Clear Lake High School in 1949.  Marion was married to Nelson “Bart” Anderson on May 31, 1953, and they made their home in Clear Lake.   Together they owned and operated the Clear Lake Telephone Company and raised four children, James, Mark, Penny &  Matthew.   Marion was active in the Clear Lake Community and attended the Reeve Evangelical Free Church.  She enjoyed music and sang with the Sweet Adeline’s for many years.  Marion was also an active member of the St. Paul Clown Club and performed in parades, at nursing homes and for children’s parties as “Sparkles” the clown.   After Bart’s death in 1995, Marion remained active in the operation of Clear Lake  Telephone and served for many years as the “bell ringer” at the Wisconsin State Telecom Association.  During this time, Marion began a close friendship with Allan Lee and made her residence in Naples, FL.  She was also active in the community there, volunteering her time helping with the local hospice.  Together, Marion and  Allan enjoyed traveling together around the world and loved spending time with family and friends.   After Allan’s death in 2014,  Marion returned to the area to be closer to her family, residing primarily at the Deerfield in New Richmond, WI, where she made many friends, and where she remained until her final passing.
