Betty Sue Harrellson was born August 16, 1945, in Adel, Ga., the daughter of LeRoy Harrellson and Loula McGee Harrellson. She was a graduate of Cook County High School. Betty married Darrell Williamson in 1984 and made her home in Bainbridge.

She loved music and seemed to always have a radio nearby. Her favorite pastime was fishing. Betty was quick to let you know who caught the largest fish (and the most fish) on every trip.

Survivors include her husband of 33 years, Darrell Williamson. Betty was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Lorin Dewayne “Skeet” Griffis; and her sisters, Dorothy Stewart, Judy Ogletree and Ruth Byrd.
