ZULA ARNOLD ANDERSON
Researched and compiled by Faye Bell (SLC) 2012
Zula Anderson was born in 1905 to Bert and Mabel Jacobs
Arnold of Ten Sleep, WY.
She married Rouse W Anderson 4 June 1925 and the couple had 5 children: Robert, Gene,
Shirley, James and Sally (Pat). Her
maternal grandparents were Lewis and Stella Jacobs and her father, Bert Arnold,
owned and operated a blacksmith shop in the middle of the town until he
retired. She and Rouse bought into the
farming business outside Ten Sleep East on Highway #16 and carried on with
farming until about 1957 when they moved to Ten Sleep proper. Two of their sons continued farming, bought
into another small area in the Ten Sleep Canyon and were diligent, worthwhile
sons and heirs. Zula
and Rouse enjoyed Masonic and Methodist member association and were actively
involved in the education system as Rouse served on the School Board and Zula supported him.
Her two oldest sons served in the military and her daughters were
educated and held responsible, professional positions of employment. She passed away in 1979.
Memories: Zula was dignified
and strong willed, anxious to be an example of industry and integrity and was
exemplary in both areas. She never
deviated from a once-proven behavior or style:
i.e., she always wore her dark hair in a short bob and she remained a
steady, well preserved figure in the community.
