Bettie Louise (Posey) Wall, 91, left us on October 3, 2022.
She is proceeded in death by parents, Clarence and Rachel; sister Martha; and husband, Thomas.
She is survived by sister, Bobbie and Roy Cates; children, Vickie Miske, Pam Gradney, Barry and Mary Wall, Betty (Wall) and Keith Bonney, Thomas and Velvet Wall, David Wall, and Robert Wall. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Mom was born and raised in Union City, Tennessee. She met and married Thomas John Wall and moved to Michigan.
Moms greatest joy was being a mother, not only to her children, but to a large extended family including friends, dozens of her children’s friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Always available with a listening ear and serval hugs for good measure. Once you met Mom, you were family. After her children were grown, Mom developed many interests such as photography and painting. She became an award-winning photographer.
One of her greatest joys was the spur of the moment or sometimes planned road trips with husband TJ, fishing or with friends Mary and Pat. The destination wasn’t really that important; usually it was always the joy of the journey.
Never one to sit and watch life pass you by, her final years were spent watching her family grow, tending her garden, nurturing the flowers and battling the weeds, and feeding her furry and feathered friends.
Mom had a deep and abiding faith in God. It was her wish that her life be celebrated with a church service. Please join us in celebrating the life of Bettie Wall at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday October 11, 2022, at Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church, 549 E. Mount Hope Avenue, Lansing MI 48910. Luncheon to be provided at the church after the service.
