1924 - 2013 Obituary Condolences


Jean Norrell Atchison, 88, of Union, KY, passed away Monday, January 21, 2013 at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Edgewood, KY. Mother, Mother-In-Law, lover and friend. Jean was a giver to all and never met a stranger. She had a passion for life and lived every moment always with a positive attitude and sense of optimism. She had a strong faith, but considered herself to be a very spiritual rather than a religious person. She loved nature and animals and as an artist found both to be her favorite subjects. For those that knew her, they were blessed for she was so full of love and kindness and everyone was better for knowing her. She was a student of Art at the Baker Hunt Foundation. She was preceded in death by her Husband, James Eugene Atchison in 1985 and 1 Son Jimmy Atchison. She is survived by 2 Daughters Jackie Hodges and Frances Atchison and 1 Son-In-Law Tim Hodges. Because of her love of animals, memorials are requested to be made to the Humane Society of Kentucky Inc., P.O. Box 369, Union, KY 41091. Visitation will be from 3:00 - 5:00 P.M., Wednesday, January 23 at Stith Funeral Home, 7500 U.S. 42, Florence, KY 41042 and a brief Memorial Service will follow at 5:00 P.M.
