Obituary for Betty Louise Hardin

August 22, 1939 - August 28, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 79


Betty Brooks Hardin was called home to Heaven on August 28th, 2018. She will be missed most immediately by her family, but also by the many colleagues and friends from her lifelong career in public service. Betty was born August 22, 1939, in Bartlett, Texas to the late Luella Imogene and Tommy Brooks.

For 32 years, Betty worked at the Texas House of Representatives helping run the offices of five state representatives from Galveston County. Betty also volunteered for the Assistance League of Austin for almost 20 years. There, she was an active member putting in countless hours over the years giving back to the community.

In her personal life, Betty was a proud and involved mother and grandmother, also known as "Grammy." She also enjoyed activities such as sewing and playing bridge and bunco with her friends. Betty rarely missed a game or performance involving her grandchildren. She had a passion for serving others that shown brightly through her actions.

Betty is survived by her husband of 59 years, Tommy Hardin, her daughter, Elaine Arnold, her daughter and son-in-law, Suzanne and Kelly Martin, her sisters, Lois Lemmond and Laverne Wade, and her six grandchildren, Erin, Jeff and Kaitlyn Arnold, Travis, Preston and Merritt Martin, and many more extended family members.

Betty's family appreciates the outpouring support and prayers from so many family and friends and is sincerely grateful for the dedication of Betty's doctors, caregiver and the staff at Brookdale Senior Living.
