Anita Hogan Talley of Virgilina passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2022, at the age of 64.

Born in Halifax County on Oct. 19, 1957, she was the daughter of the late James Thomas and Irene Puckett Hogan.

After working various jobs in construction and retail, she settled into the career that she was best suited for, being a caretaker.

Anita will be remembered as a people and animal lover that always gave the best advice and had a smile and laugh that lit up the room.

Cherishing her memory will be her children, Crystal Ann Ligon of Clarksville and James Robert “J.R.” Ligon of South Hill; grandchildren Jonah Ligon, Isaac Ligon and Harley Ligon; siblings Loretta Roberts of Bahama, North Carolina, Wayne Hogan (Sue) of Clarksville and Larry Hogan of Virgilina.

In addition to her parents, Anita was preceded in death by brothers, Thomas William Hogan, James Bran Hogan and Carl Edward Hogan.

Funeral services were held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2022, at Aaron’s Creek Baptist Church with burial in the church cemetery.

The family received friends at the church one hour prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, Anita’s family asks that donations be made to Lake Country SPCA at P.O. Box 14, Clarksville, VA 23927.
