Now enjoy a walk down memory lane as you reflect on the years spent at TJ!
As you can imagine, this was an expensive process for the Library of VA.
I would ask that you consider making a donation to help offset this expense. 
Please let me know your level of commitment, and a fund will be established for this purpose. Our goal is $2,000. I have already received a commitment for $500.
We are indebted to Mr. Errol Somay and his staff at the Library of VA for their efforts in preserving our memories.

Rose BRUMMER Herold's mother


BRUMMER, Eva, 97, of Richmond, Va., died January 20, 2021. Eva was born in Frankfurt, Germany, on August 10, 1923, to Ellie and Edmund Silverman. With the rise of the Nazi Party in 1939, Eva was forced to quit school at the age of 16. That same year, the family fled Germany for England and settled in London, where they lived through The Blitz, Germany's intensive eight-month bombing campaign of the U.K. in 1940 to '41. Eva and her parents subsequently made their way to the U.S., entering the country at Ellis Island, N.Y. They lived in Connecticut for the duration of the war, where relatives were able to help them get established. When the war ended in 1945, Eva married Fred S. Brummer of Richmond. They had two daughters, Rose Herold (Sheldon) and Susan Rubin. Eva was widowed in the late 1950s, leaving her to raise two young children on her own. In addition to raising her daughters, Eva was a lifelong member of Hadassh, as well as a board member of Beth-El Sisterhood and the Interfaith Council of Greater Richmond. She also was involved with service organizations dedicated to assisting immigrants and their families attempting to move to the U.S., as she once did. Eva was a longtime member of Temple Beth-El and also volunteered in support of the temple's outreach efforts. Family was the greatest joy of Eva's life, which, in addition to her daughters, included three grandchildren, Joel Herold (Helene), Melanie Berman (Michael) and Rabbi Jake Rubin (Lindsay); and seven great-grandchildren. She will be remembered for her fierce independence and courage; her sharp intelligence and attention to detail; and her tuna melt sandwiches, which she perfected over the course of many years for her grandchildren. Burial services were private. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to Temple Beth-El, Richmond, Va., or to any charity of your choosing.

Janie HUSKE Satterfield's mother-in-law


SATTERFIELD, Anne Powell, 98, who would have objected to being accurately described as a force of nature, peacefully passed from this world and into the next on the evening of January 13, 2021. Born in 1922, in Nottoway County, to Finnie Meade Davis and Wayland Bacon Powell, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, former Congressman David “Dave” Edward Satterfield III, who she married in 1943. She is survived by her two sons, David Edward Satterfield IV and his wife, Janie, and John Bacon Satterfield; and her two grandchildren, David Edward Satterfield V, and his wife, Claire, and Virginia Davis Satterfield, all of Richmond, Va.

Anne grew up in Blackstone, Va. Though an only child, she was surrounded by her beloved cousins. She attended public school before going to Madison College from 1939-1941. In 1943, she received a B.S. in sociology from Richmond Professional Institute.

Aside from two years in Charlottesville while her husband attended law school, and the time she spent in D.C. while her husband was in Congress, since 1945, Richmond had been Anne’s home.

During her early years in Richmond, she worked as a volunteer at the Crippled Children’s Hospital, the Cerebral Palsy Center, and Maymont. But that was only the beginning for this tireless volunteer.

She was heavily involved in supporting her alma mater, Virginia Commonwealth University, serving as a Member of the Board of Visitors from 1974-1981, with the privilege of serving as the first female Rector of the Board from 1980-81. She also served as a member and Secretary of the Board of Trustees of the University of Virginia Medical School Foundation. She was a member of the Executive Board of Richmond Memorial Hospital for nine years where she chaired the Nursing Committee, and she served on the Board of Directors for the Atlantic Rural Expedition.

She also served as the President of the United Way of Greater Richmond in 1980, and was the Christmas Mother of 1981. She was a member of Governor Robb’s Economic Advisory Board from 1982-86, and served as the first woman member of the Metropolitan Board of Crestar Bank from 1981-1992. She was a member of the Westminster Canterbury Foundation Board for four years, acting as Chairman of Annual Giving for two. And she was a member of The Woman’s Club, the Tuckahoe Woman’s Club and the Congressional Club of D.C.

Few things gave her as much pleasure and enrichment as her church, and she was a devoted and active member of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, where she was a fixture for many years. There, she served as a member of the Vestry, from 1983-86 and from 2005-08. She was President of the Endowment Fund for two years, President of the Women of St. Stephen’s from 1993-95, and a member of the Building Committee from 1994-97. She was also the leader of the prayer shawl knitting group.

Anne was an avid gardener, a maestro in the kitchen, and had a wit and charm that left an impression on everyone who met this extraordinary, special lady. She was a voracious reader, an expert seamstress and knitter, and always looked forward to cheering on the Burgundy and Gold and the UVA basketball team. She loved her family, loved to laugh, and loved to tell you what was on her mind. And she loved her Sunday crosswords.

She was a wonderful mother and grandma.

The family wishes to thank the dedicated staff of the Hermitage for their attentive care of Anne. A private burial will be held for family this week. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to VCU Foundation, care of the Anne P. Satterfield Merit Scholarship, Box 842039, Richmond, Va. 23284 or the St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church Endowment Fund, 6000 Grove Avenue, Richmond, Va. 23226.

Patterson, "Stuart"


PATTERSON, Mr. James Stewart, IV, passed away peacefully on November 20, 2020. Stewart was the son of the late James S. Patterson III and Jeanne C. Patterson. His is survived by his loving companion of 37 years, Victoria Dutile Barnes; sons, Scott Patterson (Kate) of Weare, N.H. and Christopher S. Patterson (Cherish) of Elkhart, Ind.; grandsons, Spencer Patterson of Saratoga Springs, N.Y. and Ethan Patterson of Elkhart, Ind.; and sister, Bryan P. Kennedy (Michael) of Irvington, Va. He is also survived by Vickie's daughter, Heather B. Forrest; "grandgirls," Abigail and Meredith Forrest of Mechanicsville, Va.; and lifelong friend, Kenneth M. Thompson of Richmond, Va. He was a graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School and VCU. After retiring from a distinguished career in sales, Stewart was multi-talented in renovating his 100-year-old home as well as their cottage at the Rivah. His always biting sense of humor kept us laughing and groaning. Services at Hollywood Cemetery will be private. Contributions in his honor may be made to the National Pancreatic Cancer Fund.

Betty TIMBERLAKE Mennetti's husband


MENNETTI, Paul G., 72, of Richmond, Va., went to be with the Lord on November 16, 2020. He was a 1966 graduate of Thomas Jefferson High School and served in the United States Navy from 1967 to 1972. Paul worked for the Federal Reserve Bank in Richmond and the Commonwealth of Virginia. He was an active member and elder of Hanover Avenue Christian Church and Seventh Street Christian Church, in Richmond, Va., and a volunteer for Special Olympics. Paul was an avid sports fan and never missed an opportunity to support his Rams, Hokies and Hampden-Sydney Tigers. He was a son, a husband, a father and a Papa. Nothing brought him greater joy than coaching his kids and spending time with his family and grandchildren.

Paul was preceded in death by his parents, John and Aline Mennetti; and his beloved daughter, Elizabeth. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Betty Mennetti; his children, Grayson Mennetti (Kirsten) and Farley Allen (Jeff); his grandchildren, Reed and Campbell Allen and Connor Mennetti; and numerous cousins.

A graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, November 20, in Riverview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Special Olympics of Virginia, 3212 Skipwith Road, Richmond, Va. 23294 or Seventh Street Christian Church, 4101 Grove Ave., Richmond, Va. 23221.
