Evelyn Beaty \"Boonie\" Hatcher, 98, of Knoxville, died Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013, at the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
She was a member of Knoxville First Seventh-day Adventist Church all of her life. She was a very loving and compassionate mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, blessing each of us with many wonderful memories.
She was an avid and talented golfer, hitting three holes-in-one and receiving many trophies and awards over the years. She was a member of Cherokee Country Club, Holston Hills Country Club and Seven Lakes Golf Club in Ft. Myers, Fla., where she spent her winters for many years. She also enjoyed bowling and, in 1963, was a member of the Knoxville Area Championship Bowling Team.
The only thing that took her away from her golf was the opportunity to spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There was nothing better than sitting around the dinner table to enjoy one of her wonderful home-cooked meals including scratch-made biscuits, dinner rolls or cornbread, her famous macaroni and cheese and green beans and shellies.
The automobile business was always a part of her life, as her father, Sam Beaty Sr., started Beaty Chevrolet; her husband, J.B. Hatcher, owned Hatcher Pontiac-Cadillac in Athens; and her sister and brother-in-law owned Pless Pontiac-Cadillac in Greeneville.
She was preceded in death by her husband, J.B. Hatcher; her parents, Sam and Jennie Beaty; siblings and their spouses, Helen and Kenny Pless, Sam B. and Francis Beaty Jr. and Louise and Monroe Loy; one granddaughter, Jami Sue Osborn; and one great-grandson, Austin Hatcher Osborn.
Survivors include one daughter, Sue Carol Osborn; grandchildren and their spouses, Dr. John C. and Laurie Osborn, Joseph R. and Lyana Osborn and Dr. James M. and AmyJo Osborn; great-grandchildren, John, Andrew, Thomas, Sarah, Josef, Zoe, Anabelle and James; one brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Margaret Beaty; and many dear nieces and nephews.
She will be greatly missed, but will be forever in our hearts and minds.
Funeral services will be 7 p.m. Friday at Rose Mortuary, Mann Heritage Chapel, with Pastor David Brass officiating.
