Betty Lucille Cole-Hatchard died on February 20, 2013 at the age of 88.

Betty was born in Kearney, N.J., the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Sandford. She grew up in Ocean Grove, N.J. It is there she met and married the love of her life, Norman Cole-Hatchard. Together they moved to Neptune, N.J., where they raised their three children. They were active members of Hamilton United Methodist Church for many years before moving to Signal Mountain, after Norman’s retirement.

Cooking, sewing and volunteering at the Signal Mountain Library were personal hobbies of hers.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Norman Cole-Hatchard.
