Livie Edna (Tapscott) Anderson

March 30, 1931 ~ May 22, 2023 (age 92) 92 Years Old


 Livie Edna Tapscott Anderson, 92, physically and spiritually joined her Lord and Savior on Monday, May 22, 2023 and reunited with the love of her life of 51 years, Robert Leon Anderson, who paved the way before her on Saturday, September 17, 2022. Born on Monday, March 30, 1931 in Buckingham County, Virginia, Edna was a daughter of the late Harvey Hamner Tapscott and Livie Bolling Shores both of Buckingham County. She grew up with three brothers, Stuart Vernon Tapscott (deceased), Harvey Hill Tapscott, and a younger brother born later, Thomas Carlisle Tapscott and one sister, Nora Page Tapscott Massie (deceased).

After graduating from high school, Edna went to work for Sears, Roebuck and Company. In addition to her post high school endeavors, she drove a school bus for Albemarle County, worked as a Dietary Supervisor at the University of Virginia for many years, and later became a highly successful real estate agent with Real Estate III. Her knowledge of Albemarle County and the surrounding areas attributed to her degree of success in the real estate industry. Edna was engrossed in many hobbies and activities. Included in these incredible abilities she possessed she was a gifted seamstress, photographer, artist, and piano player. Some of her pictures have hung in Albemarle County Executive‘s office. Her most popular print entitled “Hues of the Blue Ridge” has been immensely sought after over the years. Notwithstanding her abilities was her devotion as a loving wife and mother. She was the driving force that drew four teenagers together and made a family that lasts to this day. Family can attest to the fact that Edna favorite outdoor activity was pulling weeds and tending to her plants and flower gardens around her home she shared with her husband, Bob, whom she affectionately referred to as “her sweetie.” Edna, always making sure there were bird feeders full of seeds and bird baths overflowing with fresh water for the many different birds around their home, Bob and all four children laughed and said maybe he could come back as a bird and fill up on seeds and water.

Edna was devoted to her church, Scottsville Baptist, and had much enjoyment playing the piano on Sunday mornings prior to the sermon and providing flower arrangements for Sunday services. She was also a strong supporter of quite a few charities. Her favorite was the Ronald McDonald House Charities, 300 9th Street, Charlottesville, VA 22903. She couldn’t bear a child being hurt or going without in any form. Her other favorites were James River Association, 16 South 17th Street, Suite 100, Richmond, VA 2219; National Parks Conservation Association, P.O. Box 97202, Washington, D.C. 20077-7435, and lovingly Scottsville Baptist Church, P.O. Box 100, Scottsville, VA 24590.

Surviving Edna are her four children, Billie June Davidson Dutram and her husband John; Olivia Leigh (Libbie) Davidson; Donna Lynn Anderson Rogers and her husband Zane; William Glenn (T.A.) Anderson and his wife Betty Jean Dixon; eight grandchildren, Amanda Rae (Mandy) Layman and her husband Roger, Olivia Dawn Torain and her husband Tony, Aubrey Leigh Gibson and her husband Jesse, Laura Shannon Plummer and her husband Tom, David Zane Rogers and his fiancée Tammy O’Brien, Neal Ward Rogers and his wife Amanda, Margaret Adell Anderson and her husband Chris Carter, Emma Lee Anderson and her husband Ryan Jensen; thirteen great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews, as well as a special extended family member, Radosveta (Ettie) Mitova-Wells of El Paso, Texas.

The family owes a special thanks to Charlene Wood for her friendship and devotion as Edna’s and Bob’s caregiver. A special thank you goes out to the numerous special angels and outstanding staff of The Heritage Inn in Charlottesville and Legacy Hospice for the above and beyond care given to Edna.

A Memorial Service will be conducted on Saturday, July 22, 2023, at 2:00 PM at Scottsville Baptist Church with Pastor Kody Stewart officiating. A visitation will take place one hour prior to the service. Following the service there will be refreshments in the church fellowship hall.
