Darla Elaine Anderson, 77, of Watertown, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at Prairie Lakes Hospital.

Private Family Memorial Services will be held Thursday, May 28, 2020 at the Wight & Comes Funeral Chapel in Watertown.

Condolences may be sent to the family of Darla Anderson, P.O. Box 207, Claire City, SD 57224.

Darla Elaine Anderson was born on July 1, 1942 to Alvin and Ilo (May) Bren in Clear Lake, South Dakota. She completed most of her school in Clear Lake and Canton and graduated from Clear Lake High School in 1960.

Darla married Kenneth Anderson on June 25, 1960 in Clear Lake, SD. After their marriage the couple made their home in Strandburg, SD and started their family. In 1966 they moved to Watertown where Darla was employed at various places, including Jenkins Living Center, Home Consignment Center, Kirby and Avon.

Darla was a Stephen Minister at Grace Lutheran Church. She also used her passion and talent serving as clerk of Lake Township for 22 years. Although she carried out many roles in her life-time, she took pride in raising her children and being a mother was her favorite (until her grandchildren were born).

Her home was always open and you were welcomed with her witty personality, wisdom, (and had a solution for most any problem that ended in a big hug), compassion, mischief and chocolate cake.

She enjoyed garage sales, bingo, sharing her life stories, board games, polka music and those darn soap operas!

She was a wonderful mother and friend and will be so fiercely missed by all those who knew her. It's not goodbye, it's "be good and I love you".

Darla is survived by her husband, Kenneth Anderson; her children, Jaci (Brent) Wolfe of Claire City, SD, Marcus (Ellen) Anderson of Lakeville, MN, Steve Anderson of Watertown, SD and Brent (Marilyn) Anderson of Rosemount, MN; her siblings, Dennis Bren of Sioux Falls, SD, Carole Greenwood of Watertown, SD, Delvin Bren of Watertown, SD, and Laurel (Bob) LaFavor of Venta, OR; 8 grandchildren, Brandon (Kellie) Johnson, Kirsten (Tim) Lee, Kelsey (Leigh) Hansen, McKenzie Fjelland, Nolan and Hazel Anderson, Maizie and Bryn Anderson; and 5 great-grandchildren, Keegan, Tayson, Breayah, Jaxon and Lylah; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her beloved daughter, Teresa Grieshaber, her parents; and her infant brother, Lyndon.
