Our hearts and prayers are with you in these sad times. The memorial you shared with us will be in our memories forever and touched us deeply. You shared how amazing Jim and Nedra were and how they touched everyone deeply and forever and we will be touched forever as well. God bless

I still haven’t processed your parents death. I wish I could have been with you Saturday to share tears of sadness and joyful memories. So, I shed tears in your absence and have fond, joyful memories of my times with Jim, Nedra and you children: camping, playing in your back yard, roofing a shed, eating meals in your home, having some of you in my classroom, seeing you at church and youth group events, attending weddings, chance meeting in the Northern Kettle Moraine- all of these memories add value to my life and anchor my soul with safe, encouraging, kind, generous, loving experiences. Yes, you and your parents brought goodness, kindness, faithfulness, and joy into my life. And now Jim and Nedra are gone- and that leaves a gaping hole that gets filled with confusion, sadness and pain. So, I will be working to grieve their loss along with you- tears of sadness mixed with joyful memories will fill many days ahead. John Kempf

Jim is my only brother by blood, my brother in the Lord by grace, an example to me with his commitment to family and my best friend. I will miss his texts and long talks. I am filled wth grief. However, I know with great confidence that both have been spared from all the things we fear most. To my nephews, nieces and their families my request of the Lord is that His mercy and love surround you and embrace you. My wife Janelle, your aunt, loved your mom dearly. Give her a hug for her loss was great. Love, Uncle Daniel

Laurie Klug left a message on June 26, 2020:
I remember Nedra and the Anderson family as country neighbors when growing up on Hwy 106 West. I remember her as a sweet towheaded little girl who always had a smile on her face and looking after her brother, Kirk. Even then you could sense she had a caring heart of gold. I hadn’t seen her since my family moved to the city many years ago, but by reading the obituary about her fulfilling, caring and wonderful life she led, I wish I had known her in my adult life as well. My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the Anderson and Lemke families. Laurie Klug
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest sympathy goes to the entire family. I am most grateful I am thankful that I had the chance to know these two. It was about 30 years ago now when they were renting tenant house from my Grandparents ( Wes & Elaine Wenham) I lived next door to them for a while. They were the sweetest, kindest, thoughtful people one could ever meet. remembering when they started the J-N-L iron Jim worked out of the cement grainery out at the farm. the 1st two children were born. This news hurts me dearly!! There are a lot of little things i remembered and that they both marked a special spot in my heart.
Jill Hait left a message on June 21, 2020:
My condolences to the entire family. I am so saddened to learn what happened to Nedra and Jim. Nedra and Jim were foster parents through Evangelical Child and Family Agency for a number of years. I was the adoption and foster care supervisor. Nedra was so sweet and gracious. Nothing was ever a problem. She was so loving to the newborns and younger children placed in their home. Working with Nedra and Jim was delightful. It was very evident of their loving, caring relationship for each other as well for others. They were always so welcoming when I would come to visit them in their home. Hugs and prayers to their family!
