Betty Taylor Poole

Mrs. Betty Taylor Poole, 91, of Atlanta, GA died at her son’s home in Arroyo Grande, CA on Friday, January 20, 2023.


A native of the Rock Branch Community of Elberton, GA, Olene Elizabeth Taylor was born on August 7, 1931, the youngest child of Steven Olin Taylor and Bessie Cornelia Turner Taylor. The Taylors were active members of the Rock Branch Community and especially the New Bethel United Methodist Church. She was a graduate of Rock Branch High School and moved to Atlanta, GA shortly after graduating, where she went to work for Southern Bell Telephone Company. Betty retired from AT&T after 20 plus years of service.


Betty and Max were active members of Embry Hills United Methodist Church for many years. She was an excellent homemaker who enjoyed cooking. Her greatest accomplishments were her two sons, Bobby and Jeff, and she took every opportunity to make sure they had all of what they needed and most of what they wanted. Later in life, she enjoyed doing the same for her grandchildren.


Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Bobby and Tracey Poole; grandchildren: Reese Poole, Mackenzie Poole, Ramsay Juretic, and Taylor Juretic; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.


In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Maxie Eugene “Max” Poole; son, Jeffrey Brian Poole; and siblings and their spouses: Frances and Foster Goolsby, Tommie and Winford Gaines, and John and Angelina Taylor.


Funeral services celebrating her life will be held on Saturday morning, February 25, at 11 o’clock in the Memorial Chapel of Berry Funeral Home, 1265 Washington Highway, Elberton, GA, with interment following in Elmhurst Cemetery. The family will greet friends the hour prior to the service.

 

Flowers are accepted and contributions may be made in her memory to New Bethel United Methodist Church Cemetery Fund, 2708 Rock Branch Road, Elberton, GA 30635 or to Embry Hills United Methodist Church, 3304 Henderson Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30341.
