Irondequoit, NY: Erna Sylvia Andersen died peacefully on December 3, 2012. Born January 18, 1919, in Oslo, Norway to Peter Johnsrud and Betzy Michelsen, she emigrated to the United States in 1952 with her husband, Bengt L. Andersen.
Mrs. Andersen is survived by her children, Dinah (William) Goldstein of Gates Mills, OH; Peter (Kathleen) Andersen of Kansas City, MO; and Dr. John (Catherine) Andersen of Irondequoit; 8 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

The Andersens raised their children in Seneca Falls, NY before relocating to Mayfield Village, OH in 1976. Following the death of her husband in 2005, Mrs. Andersen moved to Webster, NY. The family wishes to thank the staff of Baywinde Independent Living and, most recently, St. John's Nursing Home and Lifetime Care for the fine care she received.
