Visitation will be from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Thursday at the church. Memorials are suggested to the Arcadia United Methodist Church and Arcadia Rescue Unit.

Bonnie Phyllis Anderson Gould was born September 19, 1927, at Ord, Nebraska, to Walter and Ruth (Norman) Anderson. When she was seven years old, her family moved to a farm east of Arcadia, and she attended Arbor Dale School, graduating from Arcadia High School in 1945.
After taking Normal Training, Phyllis received a Level 3 Teaching Certificate and taught school at Arbor Dale, Balsora, and Valley Side in Mira Valley.
On August 17, 1948, Phyllis and Calvin Gould were married at the Methodist Church in Arcadia. They farmed north of Arcadia until they retired and moved into Arcadia in July of 1998.
Phyllis was a member of the Arcadia United Methodist Church for almost seventy years, where she served as a Sunday School and Bible School teacher, and served on various committees of the church. She especially enjoyed working with the children, whether it was leading singing in opening exercises at Sunday School or helping serve snacks at Bible School at age 85. She dearly loved being part of the Friendship Circle and quilting on Friday afternoons. Phyllis was an active member of the United Methodist Women and served as president, secretary, and a work chairman for the group. Her membership in the church and its activities were very important to her.
Working outside in the garden was also a very special part of her life. Every summer Phyllis could be found working in her garden, especially the large strawberry patch. Even after they moved into Arcadia, she enjoyed working in her flowers and vegetables.
Her family was the most important thing in Phyllis’s life. She encouraged them in whatever they did and loved to share her latest news about them. A loving grandmother, she was even willing to take care of all seven at once. They loved to go to the farm, and they tell countless stories of adventures there with Grandma and Grandpa. She made each of them a quilt as they were growing up and then another to commemorate their marriage. As the thirteen great grandchildren were born, she made a quilt for each of them.
Her visitors, whether at the Manor in Arcadia or Rose Lane in Loup City, usually found her reading. In her last few months at Rose Lane, she told the nurses that she was limiting herself to only one book a day. Although she missed Arcadia greatly, she was very appreciative of the excellent care she received at Rose Lane.
Phyllis is survived by two daughters, Mary Anne and husband, Dale Paider of Arcadia and Denice and husband, Delmer Dietz of Central City and a son, Charles Gould of Omaha; seven grandchildren, Dawn and husband, Larry Kinne of McCook, Philip Paider of Lincoln, Susan and husband, Clint Schildhauer of LaVista, Nicole and husband, Mike Redmond of Mableton, GA , Christopher Paider of Arcadia, Jason Dietz and wife, Megan of Ord and Derek Paider and wife, Sara of St Paul; thirteen great grandchildren, Katelyn, Kyle and Kylar Kinne, Elisa, Alex and Harrison Paider, Kelsey and Kylie Champlin and Kayla Schildhauer, Leyton and Avery Paider, Chase Redmond and Clark Dietz; four step-grandchildren, Jacob, Nathan, Megan and Ryan Schildhauer; a sister-in-law, Dorothy Gould of Kearney; and several nieces and nephews.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her husband, Calvin in 2008; her parents; her twin brother, Walter (Gene) Anderson and his wife, JoAnn, a brother, Robert; and an infant sister.

Huskers Go for Season Sweep of Gophers

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- It's been just 11 days since Nebraska men's basketball edged Minnesota in a defensive struggle. Now, it's time for the rematch.

In the initial go-around. The Huskers held the Golden Gophers to just 30% shooting, which helped UNL live through no field goals in the final eight minutes.

Nebraska is coming off a loss earlier in the week at Michigan. The offense struggled in that one, as well, scoring just 44 points on 15 field goals.

Tip-off is scheduled for 5:00 PM on the Big Ten Network.
