I simply do not possess the words that it would require to write an obituary that would encompass all that she was. A mother, grandmother “Mam-Maw”, wife, daughter, sister, teacher, caregiver, role model, and friend.
For those of us who knew Batty Ann we know she would read anything with pages. So we ask in lieu of flowers or memorial contributions that you donate a book to your local library in her memory. Place a small checkmark on the top right hand corner of the title page. That is how Betty Ann kept track of the books she had read on her life long quest to read every book in the world.
A grave side service will be held at a later date.
