Betty Bissell

June 18, 1924 — August 26, 2019

Betty Lou Bissell, 95, passed peacefully and into the presence of the Lord, on Monday, August 26th, 2019. 

Although Betty was a resident of Peachtree City, Georgia, since 1997, she would always say that Vienna, West Virginia was her true home, with her beloved and belated husband, Ronald “Ed” Bissell, for 50 years. Betty was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Betty Ellen (Fowler) and Jesse Bleckley. She grew up during the Depression years and learned what sacrifice truly meant. She passed on to her children to be strong, faithful to God, and to live by the golden rule. Even though she worked outside the home, she always put family first. Betty was a member of Line Creek Baptist Church in Newnan, Georgia. 

She is survived by two sons, David C. (Debbie) Bissell of St. Augustine, FL and Larry E. (Brenda) Bissell of Jasper, GA; two daughters, Carol A. (John) Jensen of Fayetteville, GA and Peggy S. (Tom) Timmer of Conway, South Carolina; eight grandchildren, David J. Bissell, Scott Bissell, Angela Trites, Brian Bissell, Eric Bissell, Kevin Jensen, Stephen Jensen, and Jim Jensen; and five great grandchildren. We will miss her dearly. 

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at 3:00 PM at the Chapel of Mowell Funeral Home, Peachtree City. The family will receive visitors at 1:00 PM, prior to the service. 

Burial will be at Antioch Methodist Church Cemetery in Clayton, Georgia conducted by Rev. James E. Turpen on Thursday, August 29th, 2019, at 3:00pm. Visitation will be 1-2pm at Hunter Funeral Home in Clayton, Georgia.

Hunter Funeral Home is in charge of local arrangements and Mowell Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements in Peachtree City.
