T he funeral home has been an established part of the Twin Valley community for several decades. The Anderson family became a part of the tradition of caring funeral service here in 1982, when Tim and Denise moved to Twin Valley. Tim managed the Erlien Funeral Home for 5 years. A tragic fire destroyed the original funeral home building in 1983, after which time a new building was constructed across Main street. In July, 1987, Tim and Denise purchased the funeral home and operated it together. The funeral home was then known as the Anderson-Erlien Funeral Home for several years before the name was officially changed to Anderson Funeral Home in 1995. Tim and Denise opened a branch chapel of the funeral home in Mahnomen, MN, in September, 2000. In July of 2003, their daughter, Kelly Woltjer, became a licensed funeral director and joined the staff. In 2009, Kelly and her husband, Adam, joined Tim and Denise in the ownership of the business. Together as a family, Tim, Denise, Kelly and Adam, along with their dedicated staff operate the funeral home to serve the Twin Valley, Gary, Ulen, MN communities and surrounding areas.
