Obituary

Rachel Stevenson Anderson, age 89, passed away peacefully on December 15, 2022, at NHC of Greenwood. Rachel was born October 1, 1933, in Greenwood, SC. Rachel was the widow of Willie Fred Anderson, formerly of 105 Cole Street, Greenwood, SC.

Rachel loved to love on people. Her hands and feet were rarely still. A faithful member of Little Zion AME Church, before her health failed, Rachel served as a Sunday School Teacher, Usher, Stewardess and song on the Senior Choir and Gospel Chorus. Rachel also for several years served as the Women’s Missionary Society (WMS) President. Rachel was loving, dedicated,  committed and did whatever she could for many people.

Rachel retired from Greenwood Mills Durst Plant after 30 years of service.

Rachel’s life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse John 14: 1-4:, “Don’t be troubled. Trust in God. Trust also in me. My father’s room has room to spare. If that weren’t the case, would I have told you that I’m going to prepare a place for you? When I go to prepare a place for you, I will return and take you to be with me so that where I am you will be too. You know the way to the place I’m going.”

Rachel was the daughter of the later Elizabeth Hentz Stevens and Henry Stevens. Rachel is preceded in death by three brothers: Henry Stevens, Roscoe Stevens and Willie Stevens; two sisters: Johnnie Maw Partlow and Frances Stevens.

Rachel is survived by one son, Leroy (Brenda) Stevenson of Easley, SC; one daughter, Brenda Stevenson of Greenwood, SC; one sister, Mamie L. Stevenson of Greenwood, SC; two grandsons: Travis (Laronda) Stevenson, Sr. of Waldorf, Maryland and Craig (Reniece) Stevenson, Sr. of Accokeek, Maryland; four great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends to cherish her memories.

Visitation will be held from 1:00 PM until 5:00 PM on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, in the Percival-Tompkins Chapel. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 4:00 PM until 5:00 PM.
