"Her children arise and call her blessed." Proverbs 31:28

Jane Leonard Green Atkinson went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 25, 2020, from the comfort of her own home.

She was born May 1, 1936, to Ralph and Peg Leonard in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She grew up in Fountain, Colorado, with her siblings Bill, Joyce and Ginny, graduating from Fountain-Fort Carson High School.

In 1954, she married Joe Dickens, the father of her three children, Dawn, Jacy and Andy. They later divorced. In 1968, she married Hugh Green, who also became a beloved father to her children. They were happily married 28 years until his passing in 1996. Five years later, she married Keith Atkinson, whom she remained with until her death.

Jane worked a variety of jobs throughout her life, but retired from the Colorado Springs Library District after 10 years serving the community. She loved the western lifestyle and rodeo, especially barrel racing. Her passion for rodeo carried on to her children and grandchildren.

Most importantly, Jane loved Jesus with all of her heart and wanted everyone to have a close relationship with Him like she did. She loved to pray and saw it as her life's mission to pray for ministries around the world and particularly within the rodeo world.

Jane was preceded in death by her parents and first two husbands. She is survived by her husband, Keith; children, Dawn (Randy) Long, Jacy (Kim) Dickens, and Andy (Tami) Dickens; grandchildren, Faith (Nate) Hanan, Zeke Long, Brianna Dickens, Spencer Dickens and Sara Dickens; great-grandchildren, Aliyah and Kahill Hanan; siblings, Bill Leonard, Joyce (Gary) Rector, and Ginny Daniels; and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

The memorial celebration of Jane's life will be held at Latigo Trails Equestrian Center, 13710 Halleluiah Trail, Elbert, CO 80106, on Thursday, December 31, at 12 p.m.
