1920 - should be in Teton or Choteau County, Montana on homestead with husband Percy Brees, son Elwood (1) and pregnant with Phyllis, born July 1920. Haven't found them on the census yet. Birth certificate of daughter Phyllis, born July 20, lists her post office as Breeston, MT. (The Breeston Post office was their house on the homestead). As the postmasters took the census records, maybe that is why they are not included on the census records that year.

Died Nov. 2, 1980 in Denver, CO. Buried in Highland cemetery, Great Falls, MT.

I put Anna Cornelia Lunde as an AKA because she didn't care for the name Anna Lunde, and only used the Anna if it was required on some legal document. She was annoyed because Social Security insisted on Anna C. Lunde, but she didn't like it, and I see no reason for all the family records to list her as Anna when it sounds like some other person.
