Anderson, Vivian Obituary

Vivian “Jackie” Anderson was born on March 8, 1929, to the late Austin E. and Rose E. Lucas in King George Co., VA.  She departed this life to an eternal rest on Friday, July 27, 2012, at her home.  At an early age, she and her family moved to Washington, D.C.  She received her education in the D.C. Public School System, where she graduated from Armstrong High School.  On December 3, 1983, she married the love of her life, the late James “Babe” Anderson and from this union two families were joined together.  Her son, Thomas “Butch” Byrd preceded her in death.

She retired from the General Services Administration in 1989 as a Custodian Laborer in the Environmental Services Division, where she worked for 25 years.  Jackie was a dedicated, devoted, diligent, and industrious worker with a superb work ethic.

Jackie was baptized at age 11 at Corinthian Baptist Church (CBC).  Prior to joining CBC, she briefly attended Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.  She was a devoted member of the Ever Ready Chorus, BYPU, Trustees and Ladies Auxiliary, and Missionary Circle.  However, the road she cherished the most was that of holding the office of Treasurer for the Senior Ushers and Ladies Auxiliary.  In her time of over 72 years at CBC, she was a dedicated member and devoted worker where she found it not robbery to volunteer in the upkeep of her church building.

She leaves to cherish her memories:  her children, Janice Flemming (William), Keith Byrd, Gloria Williams, Darlene Byrd, Dennis Byrd (Chakita), Gary Byrd (Wyvon), and Zachary; grandchildren: Torlanda (Raymond), Gloria (Padriac), Tracie (Donell), Toi, Monica, Thomas, Jr., Juanita, Karen (Bernard), Tracy (Lamont, Sr.), Keith, Jr., Stephon, Keisha, Konika, Dennis, Jr., Clarence, Gary, Jr., and Georgia; 19 great-grandchildren, one great-great- grandchild, a very special and devoted niece, Rose (Pee Wee) Lucas, and a host of other relatives and friends.
