ORLANDO -Eleanor Anderson, matriarch of a huge family of Scandinavian heritage, recently observed her 102nd birthday surrounded by her care teams from Cornerstone Hospice and Westminster Towers in downtown Orlando. Originally from Norway, Eleanors grandparents had come to America in 1879, arriving in Ellis Island. Oscar F. Anderson (Eleanors husband-to be) was born in 1907 in the southern Sweden almost on the border with Norway and closer to Oslo than to Stockholm. At the tender age of four, Oscar arrived with his mother and older brother Carl at Ellis Island in 1911 and soon joined his father John who had emigrated earlier and was already working at the iron ore and coal docks at the Lake Superior port of Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin. Growing up in Superior, Oscar became nearby lakes and rivers as well as hunting in the woodlands of northern Wisconsin. During the 1930s young Oscar was transferred to Fargo, North Dakota. One of Oscars favorite biblical passages was Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season and time for every matter under heaven. His season was fall and the place was the Dakota prairie. For there, the skies often were darkened with migratory migrating patterns from the Canadian prairie southward while pheasants were hiding in the tall grass, harvested wheat and corn things in life gave Oscar greater satisfaction pheasant with a wing shot, that is a bird away. A skilled and successful hunter who ate all that he shot, Oscar hunted from the mid 1930s through the fall of 1993 at which time the implantation of a pacemaker and failing eyesight required that he lay down his shotgun. Thereafter, he changed his ways, taking time to feed the ducks, something the birds all seemed to approve. Another of Oscars great interests which he shared in later years with his wife throughout the year here in Orlando, where his love of orchids kept him busy moving plants in and out of the house at the slightest forecast of frost. During appropriate weather, his backyard was a mass of blooms which he eagerly shared. It was in Fargo that Oscar met a young lady of Norwegian descent, Eleanor B. Fiskum, born July 24, 1910 in Twin Valley, Minnesota. Young Eleanor had grown up in Minnesota and North Dakota and graduated from Fargo Central High School. After a brief courtship, Oscar and Eleanor married on May 31, 1935 in Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, a marriage that would last sixtysix years. North Dakota is a relatively large, sparsely populated state, characterized by harsh, brutally cold, windy winters and unsettling summers, but it was here that Oscar and Eleanor found love and in the ensuing years carefully planned their family by spacing year intervals while naming them all with names beginning with J, John, Jim, Judy and Jerry. During the 1940s and 1950s Armour (Oscars employer) transferred him to Aberdeen, South Dakota and back to Fargo on two occasions. At the time of his retirement in 1969, Oscar was manager of the Armour meat distribution packing plant in West Fargo. In 1973, Oscar and Eleanor moved to Orlando, becoming permanent central Florida residents. Oscar and Eleanor took an active interest in Baptist churches in Fargo, Aberdeen, plus continued that interest here in Orlando at Park Lake Presbyterian. It is a privilege for Cornerstone Hospice to have our expert staff care for a patient of Eleanor Andersons advanced age, and to partner with Westminster Towers in the care of someone who has lived such a familyoriented life, indicated Cindi HarrisPanning RN and executive director of the The great new joys in the autumn of Oscar and Eleanors life were the marriages of their four children and arrival of their grandchildren. There are nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. At the time of Oscars passing in April, 2001, the Anderson clan gathered at Park Lake Presbyterian Church in Orlando coming from Nova Scotia, Canada, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Maryland, Washington DC and Arizona. Just like Oscar, Eleanor is proud of all and always interested in what they were up to and how they were making their way through life. Both Oscar and Eleanor enjoyed family gatherings and always seemed to be most happy at these events, such as when the entire family gathered on May 12, 2011 for the North Dakota State University Alumni Award Banquet where Eleanors son Dr. John F. Anderson was the recipient of the Henry L. Bolley Academic Achievement Award. All of Eleanors four children attended North Dakota State University.

Last year the school started with the community. First it was stepped up, donating enough food to launch the schools new food pantry. Then the Fairways Sewing Group adopted a family at Camelot for Christmas, show ering them with everything from wrapped gifts to a full holiday dinner. Over the summer, Avalon Park Rotary and C3 Church in Wa terford Lakes collected backpacks, and donated them to students to start the year with. Aldridge said its hard to get the word out about the schools need because of its location. on the Avalon Park row. No one looks at the fact that half of our kids qualify for free or reduced lunch, she said, adding that they get no additional funding for that statistic. We fall in the middle where we have a lot of need but were not getting additional funding. Castle Creek Elementary, which sits on the same land par cel as Camelot and was built to relieve the school seven years ago, also gets no additional fund ing even though 72 percent of its population is eligible for free or reduced lunch. Schools must have 75 percent of their population or more qualify for free or reduced lunch to be considered Title 1 and receive federal funding.

Some of our teachers are taking money out of their pockets to help, she said. We need busi nesses who would partner with and cotton balls for the clinic. Aldridge said having the socio economics they do, the school has to work that much harder for their accomplishments. We dont have a huge group of stay-at-home moms who can do these huge fundraisers. All of our PTA are working moms. Its small but mighty. Camelot PTA President Jenny Saint-Preux said their biggest challenge is getting parents in volved. A lot of our parents dont the school for meetings for their child, let alone to volunteer, she said. Despite their challenges, both schools and have won awards for things such as community service. Aldridge said this is largely thanks to the many teachers at the school who put in extra hours each day to provide their students with the additional help they need.

I think the teachers at Camelot go above and beyond, especially our school, she said. Weve been hit really hard with budget cuts. We have computers that are bare ly working. It seems as the budget is cut more and more, the teach ers are working more and more to keep up with it because everyone wants the kids to do well. member Joie Cadle, who repre sents Castle Creek and Camelot, said its important for even more businesses and community mem bers to pitch in and help these schools.

ORLANDO -Eleanor Anderson, matriarch of a huge family of Scandinavian heritage, recently observed her 102nd birthday surrounded by her care teams from Cornerstone Hospice and Westminster Towers in downtown Orlando. Originally from Norway, Eleanors grandparents had come to America in 1879, arriving in Ellis Island. Oscar F. Anderson (Eleanors husband-to be) was born in 1907 in the southern Sweden almost on the border with Norway and closer to Oslo than to Stockholm. At the tender age of four, Oscar arrived with his mother and older brother Carl at Ellis Island in 1911 and soon joined his father John who had emigrated earlier and was already working at the iron ore and coal docks at the Lake Superior port of Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin. Growing up in Superior, Oscar became nearby lakes and rivers as well as hunting in the woodlands of northern Wisconsin. During the 1930s young Oscar was transferred to Fargo, North Dakota. One of Oscars favorite biblical passages was Ecclesiastes 3:1 For everything there is a season and time for every matter under heaven. His season was fall and the place was the Dakota prairie. For there, the skies often were darkened with migratory migrating patterns from the Canadian prairie southward while pheasants were hiding in the tall grass, harvested wheat and corn things in life gave Oscar greater satisfaction pheasant with a wing shot, that is a bird away. A skilled and successful hunter who ate all that he shot, Oscar hunted from the mid 1930s through the fall of 1993 at which time the implantation of a pacemaker and failing eyesight required that he lay down his shotgun. Thereafter, he changed his ways, taking time to feed the ducks, something the birds all seemed to approve. Another of Oscars great interests which he shared in later years with his wife throughout the year here in Orlando, where his love of orchids kept him busy moving plants in and out of the house at the slightest forecast of frost. During appropriate weather, his backyard was a mass of blooms which he eagerly shared. It was in Fargo that Oscar met a young lady of Norwegian descent, Eleanor B. Fiskum, born July 24, 1910 in Twin Valley, Minnesota. Young Eleanor had grown up in Minnesota and North Dakota and graduated from Fargo Central High School. After a brief courtship, Oscar and Eleanor married on May 31, 1935 in Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, a marriage that would last sixtysix years. North Dakota is a relatively large, sparsely populated state, characterized by harsh, brutally cold, windy winters and unsettling summers, but it was here that Oscar and Eleanor found love and in the ensuing years carefully planned their family by spacing year intervals while naming them all with names beginning with J, John, Jim, Judy and Jerry. During the 1940s and 1950s Armour (Oscars employer) transferred him to Aberdeen, South Dakota and back to Fargo on two occasions. At the time of his retirement in 1969, Oscar was manager of the Armour meat distribution packing plant in West Fargo. In 1973, Oscar and Eleanor moved to Orlando, becoming permanent central Florida residents. Oscar and Eleanor took an active interest in Baptist churches in Fargo, Aberdeen, plus continued that interest here in Orlando at Park Lake Presbyterian. It is a privilege for Cornerstone Hospice to have our expert staff care for a patient of Eleanor Andersons advanced age, and to partner with Westminster Towers in the care of someone who has lived such a familyoriented life, indicated Cindi HarrisPanning RN and executive director of the The great new joys in the autumn of Oscar and Eleanors life were the marriages of their four children and arrival of their grandchildren. There are nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. At the time of Oscars passing in April, 2001, the Anderson clan gathered at Park Lake Presbyterian Church in Orlando coming from Nova Scotia, Canada, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Maryland, Washington DC and Arizona. Just like Oscar, Eleanor is proud of all and always interested in what they were up to and how they were making their way through life. Both Oscar and Eleanor enjoyed family gatherings and always seemed to be most happy at these events, such as when the entire family gathered on May 12, 2011 for the North Dakota State University Alumni Award Banquet where Eleanors son Dr. John F. Anderson was the recipient of the Henry L. Bolley Academic Achievement Award. All of Eleanors four children attended North Dakota State University. Now observing her 102nd birthday, Eleanor received care by her Cornerstone Hospice team at Westminster Towers, Gary Lehman, MD; Ancheda Fronda RN; Michelle Rose, licensed practicing nurse; nursing assistant Amanda Dawkins and Westminster Towers staff Ruthie Low, licensed practicing nurse; Laura Mullen, activities director and Luis Lopez, activities assistant, all participants in the recent party in observance of Eleanors 102nd.Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative organization, has provided compassionate care and services to central Florida residents counties or visit www.cornerstonehospice.org as well as www.SeriousIllness.org/Cornerstone Scandinavian heritage matriarch under Cornerstone Hospice care observes her 102nd birthday at Westminster Towers! by Manny P.
