Betty Jean Huggans, affectionately known as “B.J.”, was the fourth child born to the union of Thomas and Lula Harris on August 9, 1942 in Yazoo City, Mississippi. She was preceded in death by her loving, adorable husband of thirty-five years Oscar Huggans, sister Josephine McMiller and grandsons Antwoine Lamar Robinson and Eric Dywane Clark.
Having grown up in loving Christian family, Betty confessed her faith in Jesus Christ at an early age and was baptized Reverend S.L. Robinson at Rose Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Yazoo City. Betty was a faithful and devoted member of the Greater Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church uniting under the leadership of Reverend George White Sr. She was faithful and exemplary in her Christian discipleship serving in any capacity as needed. She served faithfully as a choir member, President of the young adult choir, Secretary and Program Chairman. Her service extends over forty-seven years of dedicated service.
Betty was educated in the St. Louis Public School system. She was employed by McDonnell Douglas, where she retired after twenty-four years of service.
Betty leaves to cherish her memory: her children, Hope (Kavin) Rachel, Carl (Claudia) Huggans, Leslie (Darriss) Johnson and Lloyd (Angela) Huggans; sisters, Johnnie Butler and Jewel Valiant; grandchildren, Carl Jr., Isabel, Jasmine, Jocyln, Darrien (Bre), Lloyd Jr., Devoughn, Jordan and Steven; great grandchildren, Khari, Jayden, Ky’lee, Kyrie, Kasch and Bella; special friends, Genieva and Mother Walker; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends.
