Lou Anson joined the Army as a nurse in 1942. By 1943 she was on her way to the European Theater of War, but not before she had met and married Edward Anson, the love of her life. Edward was an Army Tanker and he too was sent to Europe.
During the Normandy Invasion, Lou cared for wounded soldiers on the English coast, but soon was sent into Europe to set up field hospitals. During the Battle of the Bulge, Lou and Edward were only a few miles apart, although neither knew it until later. Both Lou and Edward were wounded and sent home for recovery.
Edward Anson died in 1994 after 51 years of marriage, four children, twelve grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Lou moved to Texas and lives with her daughter and son-in-law on a horse ranch near Mixon.
