Obituary

Inez E. Atkinson June 13, 1924 - December 14 , 2020

Inez was a self-described Jazz aficionado, she loved listening to the recordings of the jazz greats and could discuss in great detail the genesis of the music as well as the life of the musicians. Another one of her favorite pastimes was working on crossword and word game puzzles. As a community leader and senior activist, Inez was committed to supporting several local and national charities including: the Salvation Army; United Negro College Fund; Vietnam Veterans Association; Walk for the Cure; the St. Joseph’s Indian School and the ASPCA among others. One of her proudest civic moments was serving as a local organizer and participant in the historic 1963 National March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Inez is survived by her two daughters Joyce Ramsey of Bristol, CT and Carolyn Ramsey of Indianapolis, IN; and son Donald Ramsey of NC; also, her brother Leon D. Atkinson of Deltona, FL; her sister Iris Williams of Clermont, FL; and her eldest nephew, William Atkinson also of Clermont., FL. Three of Inez’s children preceded her in death, they were Florence Atkinson, Sherry Ramsey-Perry and James Victor Ramsey. 51 young men, women and children claim Inez Atkinson as Grandma, Great Grandma and even Great-Great Grandma. While over a hundred others know her as Aunty, Cousin or Miss Inez, she was recognized by all as an energetic classy, generous lady with her own brand of humor and straight talk. Grandchildren: Jana Kimberly, Naomi Miriam, Ebony, Donnie, Donell, Darrell, Genesis, Victor Douglas, Lyenell, Olivia, Kundu, Kaya, Isaiaha, Sophie, and Sauda and Saida (1990 -2011) Great Grand Children: Kayla Joy, Tatyana, Joe El, Xiaver, Deenaysia, Darrell, Jr. LaDedria, Doniece, Doniya, Sibohn, Sumeon, Yaiya, Amirah, Allure, Imani, Nya, NoNe, Najee, Jamir, Jamyra, Nasir, Lyenell Jr. Messiah, Meshach, Trinity, Malachi, Naitiay, Divine, Nevaeh, Karma, Secret, Kundu, Nubian, Ntozake, Lavendar, Cherish, Sanii, Daquan, Justice, Bryce, Eliel and Sonia Great Great Grand Child: Ja’Maya Inez’s funeral service will be held at DuPont Funeral Home, 25 Bellevue Ave., Bristol, on December 23rd at 12 noon.

In Remembrance
A limb has fallen from our family tree, I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me, but remember the best times, the laughter and the song. Remember the good life I had when I was strong. A part of me will always be with and in you all. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all, I was truly blessed. Continue the traditions no matter how small. Go on with your life no matter falls. I miss you all dearly so keep up your chin. Until the day comes when we’re together again.”
So darling mother we bid you adieu with sadness but also with confidence and great thanksgiving that you will be resting well in
God’s loving and eternal arms. You will always be with us and we will always remember especially the laughter.

Always,
Dainty Dora aka Carolyn
