Congratulations to Erma Anderson: Majic’s Phenomenal Woman for the Month of March 2012!

Mrs. Erma Anderson grew up in the now gone neighborhood of Parkside projects in N.E., D.C.. While attending Howard University one of her younger sisters, Bertha, died from ashthma complications, and the last younger sibling, Blanche, had a nervous breakdown, so Erma as a teenager was left in the household to take care of her depressed father and schizophrenic younger sister through the end of her formative years.  She kept attending the First Baptist Church of Deanwood and continued singing and always loving the Lord.  Then, in her mid 20’s, because of her younger sister’s deteriorated mental state, she had to drop out of Howard and work full time to take care of her household, still staying active in church, and singing with groups like the “Majestics” during the 60’s, marching in civil rights activities here in DC, until, while working at the U.S. Post office in the late 60’s, where she met her husband. Erma joined the Civic Association immediately, as well as had her children join the neighborhood church, Seaton Memorial A.M.E., and from the 80’s worked with Maryland Parks & Planning to provide better recreational facilities for the youth in our neighborhood. She became a trustee at Seaton and is now, 30 yrs later, one of the mothers there at the church, still sings in the choir, attends regional conferences, fights for better community facilities, helps out with missionary activities at the church, and stays a blessing, and positive role model for all.   She’s touched hundreds of people’s lives, and like a true Christian, just enjoys being of service and expects nothing in return.  Mrs. Erma Anderson clearly defines what it means to be a Phenomenal Woman to the DC community!
