Mary Jean Hartman Richardson departed this world on Dec. 17, 2011. She was born in Kalamazoo, MI. She was a loving wife, stepmother and friend.
Jean graduated from Western Michigan University with a BA and from Berkley with a Masters Degree. She spent most of her working days as a regional supervisor for Bell and MCI Telephone Companies.
Jean and her loving husband of 25 years, Jacob, divided their time between Pine Island and Williamsburg, Michigan. She was an active member and a past president of the Pine Island Ladies of the Elks and a volunteer with Pine Island F.I.S.H.
Jean leaves, to miss her dearly, her husband Jacob Richardson, stepchildren, Belinda Newman, Michael Richardson, Ryan Richardson and grandchildren Logan, Nicholas, Jack, Cane and Hunter.
Jean was well known for her spirit, energy and willingness to help wherever she could. She is sadly missed by all who knew and loved her. Please celebrate, not mourn, her wonderful life.
A private celebration of Jean's life will be held at a later date.
Memorial contributions may be made to: Ladies of the Elks #2781, PO Box 192, St. James City FL. 33956.
