Virginia Beach —Ella Jean “Jeannie” Richmon passed away on June 25, 2013.

Jeannie was born in Portsmouth, Va. She graduated from ODU before she married Wilbur Richmon, from Richmond, Va. She was predeceased by parents Ida and Maxwell Roesen; brother Burnley; and husband Wilbur Richmon, of blessed memory.

Jeannie endured a lifelong illness. On good days, she enjoyed family gatherings, cooking, and reading. She looked forward to dancing and other social activities provided by the Club 35, to which she belonged with Wilbur.

Jeannie is survived by her son Wayne Richmon (Lisa); daughter, Ilene; sister, Evelyn Gup Newman; brother Lawrence Roesen (Linda); and many nieces and nephews. Without fail, Jeannie was buoyed by her two children. She had a special bond with her sister Evelyn, and her children, Gary Gup and his wife Debbie, Marcia Klioze and Ron Gup.

The family wishes to thank all the employees of the Beth Sholom Home for their infinite kindness and patience. Donations may be made to Beth Sholom Home, 6401 Auburn Drive, VB 23464.
