Peabody Anderson Hebron, NY – Virginia Anderson, age 87, passed away on September 11, 2020 at Slate Valley Nursing and Rehabilitation Center following a rapid decline in her health. Virginia was born on February 18, 1933 in Cambridge, NY the daughter of the late Harry J. and Dorothy (Russell) Peabody. She met James Anderson and together they made a family. They had 11 children. She felt raising her children was one of her greatest accomplishments. Being a natural caregiver, she also did home health care. She and James loved going camping. She enjoyed berry picking and coming home and making delicious treats for her family, with the bounty she had gathered. When the annual Elvis Festival came to Lake George every year, Virginia could be found front and center to listen to and watch the many Elvis impersonators, though in her eyes they were never a comparison to the real one. She looked forward to spending many Saturday's going to tag sales. You never knew when there would be a treasure to scoop up. Virginia was predeceased by her parents and two sisters: Loretta Coons and Marjorie Carpenter as well as her beloved companion and father of her children, James. Left with fond memories are her eleven children: Linda Dempsey of Greenwich, Michael Anderson (Sharon) of Georgia, Debbie Kleppe of Glens Falls, Shelly Higgs of Quaker Springs, Mark Anderson of Glens Falls, Matt Anderson (Linda) of Granville, Russell Anderson of Glens Falls, Cindy Mackey of Florida, Phillip Anderson (Wendy) of Greenwich, Lisa Taras (Walt) of Schuylerville, and Melissa Witt of Vermont.
