Beatrice Dorice Austin-Hyatt Obituary
Bea went home to be with her Lord Jesus on Valentines Day, 2015. Funeral services will be held at Hillcrest Memorial Park, Monday, February 23, 2015 at 1pm. Bea was 85 years old and was born in Beggs, Oklahoma to Sarah and Houston Cockrum. Bea was proceeded in passing by her husband of 54 years, Eugene Austin.
Bea is survived by her loving husband, Bill Hyatt, and children, Kenneth Austin, Michael Austin, Tommy Austin, Gail Eckels, step-children, Carla Hyatt, Judy Hyatt-Austin, William Hyatt Jr., and Dale Rushing, and three loving sisters, Beulah Barnes, Modene Thompson, and Pearlie Anderson. Bea has 19 grandchildren, many great grand children, and several great-great grand children. "Granny Bea" was known and loved by the many people she touched in this life, especially the children. She will be missed and forever etched in our hearts and memories.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, a part of us went with you, the day God took you home. If tears could build a stairway, and memories make a lane, we'd walk our way to heaven, and bring you home again. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, in our hearts you hold a place no one could ever fill.
