Jill Major Anderson of Weems, Virginia died October 13, 2020 after a brief illness. She was 66, born March 1, 1954 in Charleston, West Virginia, the daughter of the late Floyd Chester Major, Jr. and Geraldine Booth Major. Her family owned Major’s Book Store, a busy hangout for avid readers, and as a young woman she stocked shelves, helped customers, and met her future husband and companion of 50 years in the shelves, Thomas Bruce Hurt Anderson III. Sisters living in the Charleston area are Martha Lee Major and Kimberly Ann Lutz (Jack). A niece, Marranda Brooke Major, resides in New York City.

While operating a motorized newspaper delivery route with Bruce that served the hill
country north of Charleston, her business skills and rugged spirit became apparent as the business expanded and prospered, rain, shine or snow. In 1976 she relocated to White Stone, Virginia and mothered four: Emily Lane Anderson (Professor Vyacheslav S. Krushkal), Thomas Bruce Hurt Anderson, IV, and twins, William Albert Anderson, and Samuel Floyd Anderson (Valerie Rose Johnson). She also dearly loved her two grandchildren, Sebastian Alex Krushkal and Michael Graham Krushkal and zoomed with them daily.

Once her children left home, Jill joined her husband as an Irvington Realtor and helped many families relocate to the Northern Neck, being particularly skilled at matching people with waterfront homes. She pioneered development and operation of one of the first local real estate websites.

Jill always believed that she could do anything she wanted. She built powerful computers, painted second story siding while pregnant, patched our clothes, nursed our ailments, fixed the plumbing, and advocated successfully for more women’s sports at Lancaster High. Most of all, she taught us how to love.

A Celebration of Life will be held 11:00 a. m. Monday, October 26, 2020 at Currie Funeral Home, Kilmarnock, Va. Interment will take place 3:30 p. m. at Riverview Cemetery, Charlottesville, Va.

Memorial contributions may be made to Chesapeake Bay Foundation in memory of her love of the natural world.

Bruce, Gary and I are still so sad about Jill’s passing! You are in our thoughts and prayers always. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do for you now or in the future. We live so close and would be happy to bring you a meal or anything you need. You and Jill will always be a part of this house that you found for us.

Bruce, I was so sorry to see this sad news. I have such a vivid memory of Jill riding her bike all the way to our nursery on Windmill Point Rd (with Emily in the baby seat) to meet me...another young mother new to the area. Our paths didn’t intersect much over the years, except at school events. Four kids for each of us kept everyone busy! It was always a pleasure to see you both visiting your mother at RWC and Jill’s passing makes me sad for the passing of time. You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jill will always be loved by me and my brother Misha. As we grew up with Jill we were always loved as grandchildren and always found a place at their home when we needed one. Jill had infinite patience when it came to children, which we sometimes needed. She was willing to find time to play games with us, and I will never forget all the times that she played monopoly and payday with me.

reflecting on many special memories of sweet Jill and Bruce as well.. I know its been a long time since our last encounter and even longer still since we shared experiences on the road in Guatemala, where all three of us lived through the devastating 1976 earthquake, I will never forget our time together. Bruce, Im sending you many hugs and warm embraces from Nice, France. Bon Courage!
