Betty Jane (Hackett) Lollar

August 2, 1931 – August 10, 2022

A mother is more precious than all the treasure in the world.  No matter where we go, our mother’s love is there to guide us. We gratefully thank you, God, for giving her to us.  You must truly love us because You gave the best You had.  Watch over her and bless her, Lord, and keep her in Your care.  There are no goodbyes for us, but we will see you soon.

Betty Lollar, age 91, of Clinton went home to be with her heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ on August 10, 2022.

She was a faithful and devoted child of God, working for many years in any capacity needed – serving as a children’s Sunday School teacher, singing in the choir, organizing Christmas plays, and numerous other duties – at Bethel Baptist Church in Clinton.  She joined South Clinton Baptist Church in her later years and was also a member of the Clinch Valley 369 Order of the Eastern Star, Andersonville, for over 50 years.

She is preceded in death by her greatly loved and devoted husband, Delmar, her parents Aubrey Lee and Cora Ann (Etris) Hackett, and sisters Marion Baxter and Thelma Strickland.  She is survived by a sister, Barbara Anders; seven children, two daughters and a son-in-law:  Janice Lollar Cole, Pam and David Lane; five sons and daughters-in-law:  Dan and Beth Lollar, Phillip and Cindy Lollar, Jamie and Ione Lollar, Jeff and Vickie Lollar, Greg and Sheree Lollar; grandchildren, Jennifer Thomas and husband Jeff, Ryan Cole and wife Kelly, Dustin Lollar and wife Jennifer, Nikkia Lovejoy, Browan Lollar and wife Alison, Tessa Lollar, Joshua Lane and wife Leslie, Jordan Lane and wife Tori, Courtney Wright and husband Daine, Tristan Lollar, A.J.
