Jim Anderson, 74, of Sauk Centre, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family and friends, Oct. 7, 2023, at his home. Visitation will be Friday, Oct. 27, from 9-11 a.m. at St. Paul’s Church, in Sauk Centre, Minn., followed by a memorial Mass with the Rev. Brady Keller officiating. Jim was born Feb. 13, 1949, in Alexandria, to Gus and Irma Anderson. He was united in marriage to Barbara Jacobson Sept. 26, 1969. Jim worked as a florist for Anderson Florist until he got his real estate license. He eventually got his broker’s license and started his own company, Century 21. Jim loved having a few beers with friends while watching football, baseball, hockey and, of course, the “The Price is Right.” His garage door was always open, and his refrigerator was always full. He loved being surrounded by family and friends. Survivors include his wife Barb Anderson of Sauk Centre; daughter Bobbie Jo (John) Sogge of Prior Lake, son James Anderson of Sauk Centre; brothers Chuck Anderson and John Anderson; sister Cheryl Keller; sister-in-law Jean Anderson; grandchildren Ian, Dylan and Brittany and great-grandchildren Cameron, Ashby Jo and River Grace.
