HUDDY, Betty L. (Edwards)
HUDDY, Betty L. (Edwards) After a short and unexpected illness, Betty crossed from this world to the next on the September, 7, 2012, in San Augustine, Texas. Betty was born in 1937, in Strawn, Texas. She was the 8th of 11 children. In 1960, she married Tom Huddy in Abilene, Texas. She was the mother of five children. She spent many years in California but returned to her home state, finally settling in Hemphill, Texas. Betty was an avid reader and could not be talked into surrendering her hardcover books for a Kindle. She lived on a lake and became a bird watcher using her ever present binoculars to identify birds, the occasional snake and all manner of creatures. She enjoyed basketball having played the game in school. She loved playing slot machines. She also had an abiding love for all things Native American. If there were any charity she would be proud to be associated with, it would be a charity to benefit any one of Americas native tribes. She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and Ophelia Edwards; brothers John Edwards, Walter Edwards and Thomas Edwards; and a sister, Florence Mitchum. She was also preceded in death by a grandson, Adrian Huddy. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Thomas J. Huddy, of Hemphill, Texas (formerly of Lancaster, Calif.); daughters Sandra Valade and her husband Charles, of Florida, Debra Pinnell of California, and Tommye Bell and her husband Brian, of Arizona; and sons Ronnie Huddy and his wife Stacy, and Michael Huddy and his wife Sarah, both of California; 13 grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and a great-great- grandchild on the way. She is also survived by sisters Dorothy Hopkins, Lettie Frymire and her husband Harold, Barbara Walgren, Patricia Edwards, Margie Clark and Sherry Thompson and her husband Jim, all of Texas; and many nieces and nephews. Betty will be cremated and in lieu of a memorial service Betty would ask that each person perform an act of kindness to help make this a better world.
