Betty Jewell Hubbard, 82, of Lakeland, passed away on Sunday November 8, 2020. She was born in Phenix City, Alabama on November 13, 1937 to the late William and Lillar Mae Spivey.
Betty moved from Alabama to Miami when she was 6 years old. She graduated from Miami-Jackson High School in 1956. Betty worked as an administrator/secretary for many years, and truly enjoyed her work and those she worked with. Betty worked for Active Drywall in Miami, and was adored and admired by all her co-workers. They described her as irreplaceable, and extremely dedicated. Active Drywall did not have a pension plan, but they continued to send her a bonus check every Christmas to show their appreciation of her hard work. After retiring, Betty and her husband moved to Lakeland, FL in 1995. She was known for her amazing brownies and her love of TV shows. Some of Betty’s favorites were The Waltons, Gunsmoke, Murder She Wrote, Alaskan Bush People, and 90 day Fiancée. She was a compassionate and caring soul, who never met a stranger. Betty’s pride for her family was immeasurable. When her son George was stationed oversea in Kuwait, Iraq, and Cuba, she would send him care packages to make sure he had what he needed and to let him know how proud she was of his service. Her two grandsons meant the world to her, any spare moment was spent with them making memories and creating an unbreakable bond. Betty cherished her daughter-in-law Amy, she always refered to her as “her little girl”. Betty was just as loving to her nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends. She truly enjoyed the company of others.
Betty is survived by her son George (Amelda) Hubbard, and two grandsons Geoffrey and Christopher Hubbard.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Charles Hubbard.
