Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Marie Ingrid Anensen (1900-1981) immigrated to the United States from Norway in 1905 with her family.

She graduated from the old Washington High School and began working as a bookkeeper and clerk for the Jones Lumber Company located in Fulton, Portland, Oregon, now Johns Landing. Ms. Anensen quit working for the Jones Lumber Company during the 1930's and began working as a bookkeeper for the Fred Meyer Stores, where she would remain a long time employee. Marie Anensen died in May 1981.
