Betty Reynolds Snell Hendrix
Betty Reynolds Snell Hendrix, 71, passed from her earthly home at Golden Living Center in Oneonta, Ala., to be home with the Lord Thursday, June 20, 2013. She was of the Methodist faith.
Born and raised in Decherd, Tenn., Betty was the daughter of the late Harry Athel and Wilma Lucille (Neal) Snell II. The only daughter to survive infancy, her grateful parents named her after the doctor that delivered her, the late Dr. Reynolds Fite.
In 1958, Betty married the late William “Jack” Hendrix. The couple was married almost 49 years before Jack’s death in 2007. Together they had seven children, 20 grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
For over 25 years, Jack and Betty were owners of Hendrix Garage in Snead. During that time she was employed as the assistant lunchroom manager at Susan Moore High School and then at the Oneonta Seniors Center. After her children were grown, she began her own business, Aunt B’s Emporium, formerly an antique store in Snead. Later in life, she enjoyed being a caregiver to the late Ms. Pat Hood.
Prior to her illness, Aunt “B”, as she was known by, resided in Snead. She was involved in many community activities, including serving as president of the Susan Moore PTO, being elected to the Snead Town Council, where she was one of the founders of the Snead Town picnic, and serving on various committees including many with the late Rep. Hinton Mitchem.
If there was a need, that is where you would find Betty. She was loving, caring and generous to others. In 2005, Betty was honored for her good works to the community by being chosen as one of the three finalists for Blount County Citizen of the Year.
She was predeceased by her husband; her parents; two sisters; and three brothers.
She is survived by her children, Jacqueline (MSG Christopher) Yancy of Albertville, Renea (Kelly) Mitchell of Cullman, Stephen (Mary) Hendrix of Snead, Paul (Tonia) Hendrix of Snead, Joe (Kim) Hendrix of Louisiana, Shirley (James) Chapman and Robin Hendrix of Oneonta; her 20 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; brothers, Harry (Kathy) Snell III of Indiana, William Snell of Florida,
Walter Snell of Indiana, George Snell and Robert Snell; a sister, Ramona Snell of Tennessee; an aunt, Billie LaFever of Kentucky; special cousin/sisters, Pat Penny and Elaine Shasteen, both of Alabama; and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family would like to acknowledge and thank the nursing staff of Golden Living Center – Oneonta for their care and kindness shown to our loved one in her time of need.
Brother Mike Painter and Brother Phillip Robertson will conduct the funeral service in the Chapel of Snead Funeral Home at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 23, 2013, with interment in Wynnville Cemetery. Visitation will be from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
