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.
