  1. My sincere sympathy to Jean’s family. Jean and I were classmates in school. We always enjoyed our times together, especially at our class reunions. Someone once said when Jean arrived “the party will begin “ and it truly did. She was so much fun to be around, and I for one will truly miss our times together. My sincere sympathy to all that loved her.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your memories of my Mother! She truly was the life of the party! Your kind words mean so much.

  2. The reason I picked music for a candle, it was Jean who introduced me to Bill Haley and the Comets along with Elvis Presley and Blue Suede Shoes during the eighth grade. Jean will always be remembered for her kindness. We attended school together from elementary thru high school. She always attended the high school reunions. Condolences to the entire family.

    1. Thank you for sharing your memories! My mother truly loved people, and it’s apparent that was a quality she had early on. Thank you so much for your condolences.

  3. I relocated to Richmond for a job in 1980. I got the job but later was blessed with something even more precious than the job. In a short time while living in Chesterfield County I met Jean Atkinson and we became special friends. The Bible describes the type of friendship that developed “as one sticking closer than a brother. That’s the kind of friendship we had when she passed. If I said this friendship didn’t have “bumps and bruises along the way I’d be untrue. Jean and I experienced these many times as is true with any relationship but the benefits we received when making up again far out weighed not going through such. Each time we’d reconnected our love for each other became stronger. I could always know that Jean was there for me and vice versa.
    With the passing of my dear friend it has affected me so much that I can compare it in my imagination to the loss of a body part. That’s how close we have remained.
    Every where I look in my home and in my yard I’m reminded of Jean.

    I’ve cried myself out and now I can reflect on the fact that she’s no longer suffering and just sleeping. She’s waiting for the time when we’ll once again reunite and enjoy all we shared. Our reunion will be even more enjoyable than before because it will be in the promised new world that’s promised in God’s word the Bible.

    1. Hi Virginia. You know my mother. During the drive by a sister said to me: I love your Mother so much! Got in a argument with her last month! I say this because this was my mother.sometimes she could be like Peter and not hold her rudder as tightly as she should.I say this because I’m the same way.But it seems to get better with each generation, so my grandchildren actually have a chance of being normal. she was one of a kind and I loved her.We all loved her.

  4. Jean was one who could always make one laugh and enjoy the small things in life. She was a kind, loving person and one that I was glad to call her a classmate. Our class reunions and ladies lunches were always special when Jean was there. Her presence will greatly be missed in the future but not forgotten…this special person that we knew as Jean Mund Atkinson.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. It means so much to read about everyone’s memories of my mother!

  5. Sincere sympathy to the Atkinson family. Jean was a delightful person to know and spend time with. She will be deeply missed.

    1. Thank you so much!
