October 13, 2003

Lillie Mae Anderson, a Rosewood State Hospital psychiatric aide for nearly 39 years, died of an infection Tuesday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Windsor Mill area resident was 70.

Born in Richmond, Va., Lillie Mae Burston attended Maggie Walker High School. She moved to Baltimore in 1958 and soon began working at Rosewood. She retired last year.

"Her biggest joy was raising her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren," said her son, Nathaniel Evans Jr. of Windsor Mill.

Family members said she enjoyed bus trips to Atlantic City with friends.

Services were held Saturday at Brown's Memorial Baptist Church, 3215 W. Belvedere Ave., where she was a member.

In addition to her son, she is survived by three daughters, Shirley Lipscomb of Lochearn, Sophia Jones of Woodlawn and Trevor Carter of Woodbridge, Va.; two brothers, Littleton Edmonds Jr. and Claude Lee Edmonds, both of Richmond; three sisters, Gloria Christian, Odessa Edmonds and Rita Edmonds, all of Richmond; eight grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Her marriage to Nathaniel Evans Sr. ended in divorce. She then married Percell Anderson, who died in 1989.
