Obituary for Emma G. Anderson
Emma Evans Anderson departed this life peacefully and entered eternal rest on July 10, 2020 in the Kempsville Health and Rehab Center in Virginia Beach, VA. She was born in Nottoway County, VA on September 26, 1929 to the union of Robert and Emma Evans.

She was educated in the public schools of Nottoway County. At an early age she was baptized and joined the Spring Hill Baptist Church.

Emma was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Thomas “Tate” Anderson and resided in Baltimore, MD for many years before relocating to Chesapeake, VA and residing with her beloved and devoted nephew, Melvin “Mel Mel” and niece Gladys.

Gertie’s smile would light up the room and everyone who knew her was touched by her beautiful spirit and wonderful sense of humor.

God’s grace and mercy brought her to a happy place in her life. She committed her life to Christ afresh and anew, and often spoke about being baptized at Spring Hill Baptist Church many years ago. Her favorite bible scriptures were the Lord’s Prayer and the 23rd Psalm.
She remembered the things about her upbringing and young life, speaking affectionately about her “Ma and Pa” and her brothers and sisters. She would talk about what a really good man her husband “Tate” was to her for over fifty years.

Emma was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; six brothers; and two sisters.
She leaves to cherish her memories: her brother, William Evans; stepson, Franklin Anderson; sisters-in-law, Thelma Evans, Barbara Evans and Norma Jean Carter; a host of nieces, nephews, extended family members; a devoted niece and caretaker, Gladys Evans, Maxine Overton and Shawntina Cross.

Graveside services Saturday, July 18, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at Spring Hill Baptist Church, Blackstone.

W.E. Hawkes & Son Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
