“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” II Timothy 4:7-8

Virgie Mary Anderson transitioned from labor to reward on Saturday, December 25, 2021, at her residence.

Virgie was born on November 11, 1929, to the late Silas and Lovely Greene. She was educated in the Caroline County Public School System. She worked for Holly Farms now known as Tyson Foods, Glen Allen, Virginia for over forty years. There she became friends with many of her co-workers, still staying in touch even after retirement. She met and married the love of her life, James W. Anderson, who preceded her in death. From this union five girls were born, one preceding her in death, Barbara Ann Gwathmey. Virgie was a nurturing mother and a loving wife.

At an early age, Virgie accepted Christ as her personal Savior and joined The Second Baptist Church, Ruther Glen, Virginia under the leadership of the late Reverend Braxton. As she grew in faith, she joined several Ministries at the church, and served faithfully until her health started to decline. They were The Deaconess, Willing Workers, Senior Choir (remaining the last original member), Adult Sunday School Teacher and Missionary. She represented the church well in the Area K-1 of the Mattaponi Women’s Division. During her tenue she was honored as being “The Mother of The Church. She was also a member of the Ruther Glen Women’s Saving Club for many years. One of her favorite songs was, “Your Grace and Mercy.”

Virgie had a passion for cooking, especially rice pudding. She loved working in her flower beds, traveling and visiting the sick and shut in. She also enjoyed visiting different churches and events in the community. If you needed her for anything, all you had to do was ask. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. To know Virgie was to love her.

Virgie was preceded in death by her parents Silas and Lovely Greene; two sisters, Ester Sheperd, and Helen Wilkerson; two brothers, Robert Greene, and Thomas Greene. Two great grandsons, James Micheal Richardson and Kwandre Carey. A great niece, Vanessa Greene whom she raised as her own daughter; four brothers-in-law; and her friend, Deacon John Jackson.

Virgie leaves to cherish her memories her four loving daughters, Marion Roberts, Joan Richardson, Jessie Maclean (Rick), and Jane Anderson; five grandchildren, Bryant Roberts, Antonio Anderson, Teresa Collins, Anita Woodward and Angela Richardson; ten great grandchildren; five great- great grandchildren; two sisters, Joyce Garland, and Lovely Christine Duncan; one brother, Edward Greene; one sister-in-law, Magalene Anderson; and a host of relatives and friends.
