Mollie Richardson

November 27, 1928 - July 7, 2022

Mollie Vesta “Tot” Richardson, 93, of Nederland, died Thursday, July 7, 2022. She was born November 27, 1928, in San Augustine, to Eliza Jane Mitchell Eppes and Charles Wallace Eppes.

Mollie retired from Kroger in Beaumont after thirty-four years of service. She was a dedicated employee that worked as cashier to manager and everything in between.

Most of Mollie’s weekends and time off were spent at her beloved lake house on Toledo Bend which she and her family built. The lake house held so many memories and she passed it on to her grandchildren who still enjoy it and continue to make memories to this day.

Mollie was an amazing cook. All the holidays were spent at her house surrounded by family. In her later years, she would spend most Sundays in front of the TV watching her Nascar. You did not want to bother her during race time!

“Mom/Mimi, you will be dearly missed. We love you, thank you for all your years.”

Survivors include her children, Cindy Chatelain and husband, Ray, of Nederland and Charles Michael Richardson, of Crystal Beach; grandchildren, John Chatelain; David Chatelain and wife, Dawn; Michael Chatelain and wife, Christina; Pam Chatelain Werner and husband, Joel; Timothy Chatelain; and Kevin Richardson; great-grandchildren, Kassie; Karston; Kryslyn; Hayley; Emily; Dawson; Dayton; Dakota; Bayli; Mason; Dylan; Dalton; Jessica; and Candice; great-great-grandchildren, Zane and Charli; sisters, Martha Newton and Mary Lou Windham.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Lyle Richardson; parents; grandson, Jason Richardson; two baby daughters, Betty Jane and Baby; sisters, Betty Ford and Sybil; brother, Pat Eppes; and daughter-in-law, Caryl Richardson.
