Ernestine B Anderson


Ernestine (Nanny) B. Anderson June 29, 1915- September 5, 2013. Nanny was the second of three children born to James and Lida Burdette of Nashville, TN. Nanny was married 42 years to the love of her life, Edward Anderson. They lived in Franklin, TN before moving to Oak Ridge, TN and spent time in Panama Canal before ultimately making Pensacola their home. Nanny made friends with each move and became the adoptive mother to all the neighborhood children. She loved each child as if they were her own. Nanny was also a prankster. She loved to laugh and have a good time.
