Betty Jean Hart

August 5, 1937 — June 11, 2024

Greer, SC

Betty Jean Hart, a beacon of warmth and faith, passed away peacefully on June 11, 2024, at the age of 86 in Greer, South Carolina. Born on August 5, 1937, in Carnesville, Georgia, Betty lived a life marked by kindness, devotion, and a spirited zest that touched everyone she met.

Betty's journey through life was shared with her beloved husband, Olin W. Hart, who stood by her side in loving partnership. Together they celebrated life's joys and faced its challenges with unwavering support for one another. Betty's legacy of love continues through her daughters, Teresa Jones of Dalton, Georgia, Kimberly Namer of Metairie, Louisiana, and Judy Gerrard of Easley, South Carolina. She was a guiding light to her 9 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and 11 great-great-grandchildren, who will carry forward her teachings and affection.

Though she was preceded in death by her daughter Patsy York of Greenville, South Carolina, three brothers, and six sisters, the memories and bonds she forged with them remain an indelible part of her story.

Betty's life was one of service and friendship, as evidenced by her years spent as a waitress, where she greeted everyone with a smile and left a lasting impression with her friendly demeanor. Her faith was the cornerstone of her existence, and she cherished her church community, where she found solace, strength, and fellowship. Betty's love for reading allowed her to explore worlds beyond her own, and she often shared the wisdom she gained from the pages with those around her.

Described by those who knew her as friendly, faith-filled, and spirited, Betty's presence was a source of joy and comfort. Her ability to connect with people, to share in their triumphs and support them in their sorrows, was a gift that made her truly special.

Betty's life was a testament to the power of positivity and the impact one person can have on the lives of many. As we bid farewell to Betty Jean Hart, we celebrate the remarkable woman she was and the countless lives she enriched with her generous spirit.

Her memory will be cherished and kept alive in the stories passed down through her family and the many people whose lives she touched. Betty's journey on this earth may have come to a close, but her spirit will continue to inspire and guide us for generations to come.
