October 2, 1943 – February 17, 2021
Atliene V. Mohamed (nee' Hunt) of Staten Island, NY, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 17 at 77 years of age.
Atliene was born on the island of St. Martin, F.W.I to Germaine Hyman and Alexander Hunt. She came to New York City in 1962 and lived in Harlem with her aunts. In 1972, she married and settled in the Bronx.
Her two daughters, Irene Amina Mohamed and Khadija Mohamed, were the light of her life. She bestowed on them her love for the New York Yankees and took them to as many games as possible. In 1981, the family moved to Staten Island where they would make their forever home. She took her civic duty seriously as an active voter and juror and made it a point to stay abreast of current events and politics. It’s no surprise that Irene works the polls every election. She was an avid card player and passed her competitive nature on to her two daughters, who are a formidable force at any spades table.
Atliene worked for the United States Postal Service for 25 years before retiring in 2005. Her warmth and work ethic turned her colleagues into true friends who looked out for her even as she lost her vision.
Atilene was an amazing cook. One of her proudest culinary moments was when she was asked to make her homemade beef patties for black history month at St. John’s University. She was also known for her her love for hot sauce, no food was spicy enough.
She loved New Orleans and claimed it as her favorite US City—after NYC, of course. She loved the food, the music, and that, like her home Island, the city had a section called the French Quarter.
Her love of music and the arts was well known. Her favorite musicians included Al Green, Bob Marley, The Mighty Sparrow, and Kenny Rogers. She also loved Elvis so much she almost named her second daughter Priscilla! Her favorite actor was Sidney Poitier and her favorite movie of all time was Lilies of the Field. She loved Murder She Wrote, Colombo, I love Lucy, and the Honeymooners.
Atliene began losing her vision and then her memory far too young. It was not easy for the woman who had always taken care of herself and her girls to accept the need to rely on others. Her sister Bonice and her daughters cared for her faithfully at home until her passing. Never a burden, Atliene was loved from her first day to her last.
Atliene’s greatest joy was her family. She is survived by her two children, Irene Williams (nee Mohamed), Khadija Mohamed, sister Bonice Hunt and son-in-law Michael Williams. She also leaves behind an extended family and friends that are too numerous to count but she carried in her heart through the very end.

She was my Stepmother and though we have been distant I always felt her kindness, her thoughtfulness, and she influenced me. I saw her as the bigger woman, I was another woman’s child but in her presence she treated me as her own. She was confident and secure in her morality. She thought me how to be a supportive person how to be kind to my fellow sisters. May you Rest In Peace. Nancy/Ayan
