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. Enjoying their many friends, playing Bridge, traveling, entertaining and spending time with family members made retirement a happy time for them. They both were involved in Signal Crest United Methodist Church. Betty especially loved being a member of the Martha Circle. 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.

She is survived by her brother, Joseph (Lois) Sandford, her sister, Janet (Howard) Smith; three children, Richard (Sandy) Cole-Hatchard, Lynn (Bill) Heck, and Jill (Al) Truax; six grandchildren, Monica (Carl) Nordel, Colleen (Michael) Attardi, Andrew (Laura) Heck, Ashley Heck, Cole Truax, and Paige Truax; and five great-grandchildren, Lukas and Lily Nordel, Mikey and Nate Attardi, and Finn Heck.
