Obituary of Betty Hallman
OBITUARY – Betty Hallman – Ocean Springs, MS - Betty Sylvia Boozer Hallman was born on December 20, 1931 in Batesburg, SC. She was a child during the Great Depression, with memories of World War II, especially of food rations and of the day the war ended, when there were celebrations in the streets. After high school, Betty did some modeling, and considered a career as a model, but she ultimately chose a more reliable line of work at the regional Bell phone companies, until she retired in 1989.
Betty loved to travel and enjoyed living in multiple states, including South Carolina, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Mississippi. Betty was an excellent cook and baker. She enjoyed baking for her neighbors and her grandchildren.
Betty's favorite hobby was casino analysis. She could figure out which slot machines to play, and when to play them. She could play for months and break even. For her, going to the casinos in Biloxi was free entertainment.
Betty passed away on December 16, 2019 after a long illness. Betty is survived by her spouse, LaWanda Stewart; her brother, Von Boozer; her daughters, Debra Goings (Donald) and Jerri Beth Hallman (Mary); her grandchildren, Vanessa McWhorter (Josh), Michelle Cox (Mathew), Travis Goings (Jaclynn), Melissa Moorer (Justin) and eight great-grandchildren.
