Betty Lou Hardin, a long time resident of the Tri-Cities area and a resident of Grace Healthcare in Abingdon, Virginia, departed this life on May 4th, 2020 at Johnston Memorial Hospital.
She was born in 1929 in Big Stone Gap, Virginia to parents Carl Hardin (deceased) and Fannie Mae Leeper (deceased); raised in a large loving family that consisted of three brothers and four sisters.
Betty worked caring for others and their homes for most of her life and was a member of Lee Street Baptist Church in Bristol, Virginia.
A fun-loving woman, Betty loved good food, visiting family, and had a laugh that would light up a room. She never met a stranger.
She is survived by a loving and devoted son, Larry (Edyth) of Dallas, Texas, two granddaughters Treva Shellman and Jilyian Walcott (Christian), as well as two sisters, Virginia Clark and Jennette McCray of Cleveland, Ohio and a host of other family members who will cherish her memory.
The Hardin Family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to Grace Healthcare and staff for taking care of our loved one in her latter days. We are forever indebted to you.
