Sister Betty Candler-Hardmon, the last of J.C. and Betty Candler’s bunch, was born on a beautiful summer day on July 27, 1966, in Tallulah, Louisiana. On December 30, 2020, Betty took her wings of glory.
At an early age, Betty was baptized at Mt. Pisby under the leadership of Reverend King. As she grew in Christ, she joined East Star Baptist Church, where she was an usher. Betty later attended Pleasant Grove #2 Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Kemp Burley until her death. Betty graduated from McCall High School with the class of 1984. She was a faithful worker for many years at the sewing factory. Later, some years down the line, she worked for many years at Wright Elementary School Cafeteria before she became sick. In 1996, Betty married the love of her life, Timothy Hardmon; with this union, six children were born.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents, J.C. and Betty Candler; her husband, Timothy Hardmon; one sister, Dorothy Faye Kinsey; and one brother, Robert Candler.
