Obituary…The Tennessean
Mary Virginia Jones Anderson, age seventy-nine, passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 25, 2016. 
She was born January 7, 1937, in Smyrna, Tennessee, to the late Tom Fox Jones and Ruth Jordan Jones.  Mary’s family moved to Nashville and she attended David Lipscomb High School and David Lipscomb College.  She was a long-time member of Otter Creek Church of Christ. Mary was a devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend.  Her greatest joys were her family and serving others.
Mary is survived by her husband of fifty-eight years, Clive Anderson, Jr., and her five children: Tommy Anderson (Stacey), David Anderson (Kathy), Sam Anderson (Jennifer), Susan Burns (Kent), and Dan Anderson (Brooke); twelve grandchildren, Kayla Anderson, Ashley Anderson, Rhonda Anderson, Robert Anderson, John Anderson, Julia Anderson, Sam Anderson, Elizabeth Anderson, Mary Jordan Burns, Virginia Burns, Mitchell Anderson, Hill Anderson; and two sisters, Caroline Jones Cross and Linda Jones Biggs (Winston).
A visitation will be held at Woodlawn Roesch-Patton Funeral Home on Thursday, December 29, from twelve noon until two-thirty in the afternoon.  A private graveside will immediately follow the visitation.  The family appreciates the loving care of the Woodcrest at Blakeford and the many loving caregivers throughout her lengthy illness.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 4825 Trousdale Dr. #220, Nashville, TN 37220 or Wayne Reed Christian Childcare Center, 11 B Lindsley Ave., Nashville, TN 37210.  Visit the online obituary:

Comments by Sandra Collins
My memories of Mary Anderson are too few: seeing her standing beside Linda Biggs folding clothes for the Youth Hobby Shop Christmas Store and learning many years later that they were sisters; coming to her home once and being greeted warmly and graciously; eating the delicious food she would bring to potlucks; receiving a phone call from her about clothing she wanted to donate to YES.  I regret not knowing her better.  After the visitation Jerry said Clive had talked eloquently and extensively about what a wonderful wife and mother she had been and how proud he was of all his children. I thought of Proverbs 31.
