She attended Dakota Business College in Fargo, ND, and worked for a year at Standard Oil in Fargo.  Cleo was united in marriage to Myrle Anderson on June 12, 1948, in Fargo.  Cleo was proud to be a homemaker and mother, and she helped support her husband as he owned and operated Anderson Pontiac in Moorhead. 

Following Myrle’s death on November 17, 1988, Cleo continued to make her home in Fargo but wintered in California as well as Arizona. 

Cleo died Wednesday, October 18, 2023, in Sanford Hospice House, Fargo, at one hundred years of age.

Cleo is also survived by, and was very close to, many of her nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, Myrle, Cleo was preceded in death by her parents; two daughters, Carole Bauer and Peggy Anderson; and two brothers, Stanley and James Frahm.
