ROLLING FORK — Graveside services for Joseph Anderson, 67, will be Saturday, Sept. 5, 2020, at 11 a.m. at Green Chapel Church Cemetery in Rolling Fork. Pastor Otis Anderson will be officiating.

Joseph was born on Oct. 14, 1952, to the late Willie Mae Anderson and Marcus Chambers in Rolling Fork. He accepted Christ at an early age and was a man of faith, a tower of strength to others even in the midst of his own pain.

He was a member of Green Chapel Missionary Baptist Church where he served as an usher. Joseph attended Henry Weather High School.

To all who knew and loved him, he was our Joe. He was generous, kind-hearted and loving. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved his family.
