Constance Savannah Richardson, 84, of Hampton, VA, formerly of Harrisburg, transitioned into eternal life on Friday, December 21, 2018 in Virginia. She was born in Cuthbert, GA, daughter of the late Cleopatra Sanders and George Y. Muse, an honor graduate of Mechanicsburg High School and graduate of West Chester University with a B.S. in Education.

Richardson. She leaves to celebrate her life, her daughters, Leisa (Helen) Richardson of Brandon, FL and Pamela Richardson of Hampton, VA; her grandson, Cameron Flores of Atlanta, GA; two sisters, Sadie (Sidney) Hall and Lydia Clemons and one brother, John Muse, all of Washington D.C.; and loving cousins, nieces, nephews, brothers and sisters-in-law and wonderfully close friends.
