She was born on March 26, 1944 to the late Everette and Ruth Richardson. She attended Shady Grove School through eighth grade before moving to New Brunswick, N.J. She graduated from New Brunswick High School in 1962. She lived the majority of her life in the Clemmons area. She was married to the love of her life, Larry Anderson for 38 years, until he died in 2004.  Together, they enjoyed traveling and riding motorcycles and spending time with family, especially their grandchildren. She worked as an administrative assistant at Members Credit Union (formerly McLean Trucking Co.) for 36 years before retiring in 1996. She was a joy to all who knew her.  One of her favorite sayings was, “Today is a good day to have a good day.” She had a warm and welcoming spirit and found great satisfaction in helping others. She had a special talent for knitting, baking, decorating and gardening. She loved to watch the birds and spend time with her grandchildren, whom she treasured above all else.   Even in the face of adversity, she was gracious and loving, and managed with a quiet strength that exemplified her nature.
