Josephine Blount
BLOUNT, Josephine, of Richmond, Va., received her wings on May 27, 2021. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Her smile was warm and welcoming. Her family called her "Mema" and knew her to be sweet, caring and thoughtful to all she met. God blessed us with a beautiful person who made people feel like family and enjoy holiday gatherings around a homecooked meal. She is survived by her husband, Cephas; son, Carlton; daughters, Chris and Meredith (Rodney); eight grandchildren, one greatgrandchild, a host of sisters, a brother, nieces, nephews and cousins. The family would like to thank everyone who has come to care for and support her. The family will receive extended family and friends through a driveby on Friday, June 18, 2021 from 5 to 7 p.m. at 1908 Benham Court, Henrico, Va. 23228.

It's hard to know what to say at a time like this but know that I care with the sympathy and understanding that words can't express. It would be my wish that these caring thoughts and words of support could make everything better but I am certain your strength will carry you through. You Are Not Alone. I loved Mrs. Blount with my whole heart.She always made me feel like part of the family and I will never forget her kindness and beautiful spirit.

To the Blount family, We are saddened to learn of the passing of Ms. Blount. We have very fond memories of her. She was and still is the best hairdresser we've ever known. Always took care of me and my girls while they were in school. When visiting her home, we always felt like family. She will always be remembered. Our condolences to the Blount family and loved ones. May you find comfort and peace in your memories during this time. Nancy Broadie and girls (Linda Chambers, Lisa Smith)
