Betty Jean Thompson

August 22, 1942 - August 15, 2022

08/22/1942 - 08/15/2022

Betty Jean Thompson, 79, passed away on Monday, August 15, 2022 in Virginia Beach, Virginia surrounded by her loving daughter and grand-daughters. Heaven has gained a beautiful, loving angel and a big piece of our hearts. Betty Jean was born on August 22, 1942 to Millard and Lillian Robertson in Kenova, West Virginia. She was a shy girl who was very smart and had a lot of friends who adored her. Betty Jean was a graduate of Ceredo-Kenova High School in Kenova in 1960.

Betty Jean married the love of her life, Robert Leroy Thompson, shortly after graduating high school. The Thompson’s union brought forth two beautiful children, Tony and Pamala. Betty Jean’s family meant the absolute world to her and she devoted her life to taking care and being there for her family. In her spare time, she loved going to church, reading about the Lord and listening to her Christian music. She also loved visiting with her friends, shopping, decorating her house, playing games, cooking and baking for her friends and family. Betty Jean really loved spending time with her fur baby and companion, Snuggles, whom she had for 12 years before Snuggles crossed over to doggy heaven.

Betty Jean was predeceased by her parents, her brother Mike and her eldest grand-daughter Natasha. Left to ensure her memory continues to live on are her two children Tony (Barbara) and Pamala (James); grand-daughters Jennifer and Sheena; grand-son Joshua (Rebecca); two sisters Rhonda (Steve) and Brenda; four great grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and a multitude of loving and caring friends.

In Betty’s honor, there will be a Celebration of Life service held in the very near future (date is currently to be determined).  For more information regarding the Celebration, please reach out to her daughter Pamala, via email, by clicking HERE.

I remember when Jason was stationed there, in Norfolk. We would go visit Uncle Bob and Aunt Jean. We also went to church with them. I loved Aunt Jean so much. I can imagine the reunion, Jean and Bob had!

I dont know where to start, I am grieving so much lately! Im trying to see through my tears! All I remember is your quiet reserved loving personality, and how you spread your love to so many whose lives you touched. Not only through you but through your daughter whose personality came from you and has been such a gift to me through the years! She got your humor and your grace. She got your intellect and wisdom and fresh sincerely loving personality! Then touched others with it. She spread it on to your grand-babies who in turn touch so many! It started with you and kept going!! You blessed us all!! Thank you for that!! I and many whose lives you touched with your special love and sincerity will miss you BIG TIMES!!! Every time I see a butterfly I will think of sending it your way with loving vibes! God bless you and keep you with His Angels!!
Sincerely and warmly!

Mama Pam, Jenn, Sheena and all of Monkeys family. I extend my deepest sympathies to all of you. I know how tight everyone was with her. She was such a blessing, who loved you all fiercely. From the moment I met Jenn as a teenager until now almost 30 years later, Monkey was a constant. You could count on her for anything, Grandma was always there. That’s the true definition of a Mother, a Grandmother, and a friend. I know this cannot be easy, but it’s because the love was so strong and it was real. I extend my deepest condolences to all of you, may God and the memories of Monkey comfort you during this time.

Psalm 73:26 –
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever
