Priscilla Anklam, age 88, of Rolette, ND passed away on Monday, June 10, 2019 at Heart of America Medical Center, Rugby, ND surrounded by her family.
L. Priscilla Anklam was born on August 15, 1930 at home north of Dunseith, ND to Robert and Sylvia (Wicks) Lamb. She was raised north of Dunseith and completed her education at Carpenter School. Priscilla was united in marriage to Charles Anklam on June 4, 1962 in Dunseith. Together they had two children, Robert “Bert” and Laura Beth “LB.” Priscilla was a nurse for many years starting out at the Belcourt Hospital and then working for the Rolette Hospital until its closure. She also worked on the farm with her husband, Charles, farming and raising sheep and cattle, which she greatly enjoyed. If you ever visited the farm during lambing season you would see Priscilla walking to the barn with a bottle for a lamb. She tended her sheep till she was 80 years old.
During her last 35 years of her life, she loved to see and spoil her many grandchildren. She will also be remembered for the caramel rolls, homemade bread, bacon and eggs, she made for Charles, family and guests. She remembered and made everyone’s favorite food and had it on the table at family meals. She will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her family members and friends.
Priscilla is survived by her son, Robert “Bert” (Becky) Anklam of Rolette; daughter, Laura Beth “LB” (Anthony) Buchl of St. Paul, MN; eight grandchildren, Bobbi Jo (Dustin) Church, Krista (Cory) Wright, Nikki Anklam, Konnor Anderson, Noah Anderson, Noah Buchl, Selia Buchl, and Quinn Yao Buchl; six great grandchildren, Alyvia Church, Aidyn Church, Owyn Church, Oaklyn Church, Brogan Wright, and Mox Wright; daughter-in-law, Deborah Anklam of Moorhead, MN; and sisters-in-law, Betty Lamb of Grand Forks, Orian Harrington of Seattle, Kathy Anklam of Rolette; and brothers-in-law, Tom Harrington of Seattle and Donald Anklam of Rolette.
