Elizabeth Ann Kerr “Beth” Ledgerton, 71, of Manassas, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday December 19, 2020, surrounded by loved ones in her home.
She was born September 10, 1949, to the late Waneta Maxine Kerr DeLuca and Albert Rex Kerr in Waynesburg, Pa.
She retired in 2012 as the Fauquier County treasurer after 20 years of service, during which she won election five times without opposition. Prior to that, she was the office manager for United Mine Workers of Virginia in Washington, D.C.
She was an active member of Victory Gospel Church in Manassas and enjoyed time with her church family and spent hours on the phone talking and enjoying fellowship with them. She was also active in the Warrenton Rotary Club and served as a past president.
She selflessly raised her younger siblings, Randy, Wendy, Dina and Dayna, when their parents unexpectedly died at a young age. She took them in and raised them as her own so they would all stay together and they would know her as Mom and their kids knew her as Grammy!
She was preceded in death by her brother, Albert Russel Kerr, on April 12, 2020.
She is survived by her brother, Kevin Bruce Kerr (Linda) of Waterford, Michigan; her four children, Randy Kerr of Washington, D.C., Wendy Taylor (James) of Manassas, Dina Laughlin (John) of Jeffersonton and Dayna Sellner (Kevin) of Nokesville. She also raised two stepchildren, Sara Swearengin (Zak) of Yelm, Washington, and Jennifer Barnes (Mike) of St. John, Indiana.
Also surviving are 11 grandchildren, Raymond Kerr (Paula), Corey Sellner (Felicia), Paige Sellner (Ben), Erica Laughlin, Taylor Stroud (Logan), Shaleen Thomas (Aaron), Crystal Taylor, Nate, Aubrey, Liam, Connor Swearengin, along with seven great grandchildren, Joel, Noah, Annalise, Gabriel, Mary-Juliette, Christian and Sofia.
A celebration of life for family and friends will be held at a later date early spring.
