Mrs. Anna Johansen Ringsted's Oldest Baby Entertains on 88th BY MARIE POWERS RINGSTED— Mrs. Anna Johansen is Ringsted's "oldest baby," that is, the oldest resident who was born here and who has lived here all of her life. She was bom Jan. 13, 1885, to Maren and Lars Hansen, two miles south of Rings ted. "We used to go to Emmetsburg, 20 miles to the south for our town. Ringsted wasn't here when I was a child," she commented. "Going to town 'was an all-day affair with team and wagon. In winter we would bundle up with heavy blankets and put heated oats in burlap bags at our feet to try to keep warm." Anna and her late husband, Peter Johansen, farmed southwest of Ringsted. "I fired many cobs and wood into the old faithful cook stove," she reminisced. "I am the only one of a family of six left living, here I am." Her footsteps are still mighty sprightly for a woman of 88 years. She has been assisted with her housework by Mrs. Charles Lund the past months. "I sit and knit some, but my eyes and fingers aren'tverynim­ ble," she added. Saturday she entertained friends and relatives for her 88th birthday, with the assistance of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Herluf Johansen. "My two nephews, Larry and Wiley Hansen are real good about visiting me and seeing that I have all the things I want," she observed, happy for such attention. Larry operates a grocery store and he sees that she has all the delicacies she wants for her frequent visitors. Mrs. Johansen has one daughter, Edna, Mrs. Phil Wistrom of Des Moines, two sons, Herluf of Ringsted and Marvin of San Francisco, Calif. Anna has many reminders in her cozy home in southwest part of Ringsted that she was once an ardent crocheter. A crocheted tablecloth, and various pieces of fancy work show that she once spent happy hours at sewing. JAN ANDRE of Sioux City was also here for the weekend and was taken back Sunday by Mrs. Wayne Andre. MR. AND MRS.
