Obituary for Myra Hamilton Pettis

After 98 years of living in God’s grace, loving and touching the lives of so many, the matriarch of the Pettis family, Mrs. Myra Hamilton Pettis passed away on December 27, 2018. She was surrounded by family members as she quietly and peacefully transitioned home to be with the Father. God’s purpose for her on earth has been fulfilled, and we take comfort in knowing that she is at peace by His side.
Her journey began in Thomson, Georgia on December 26, 1920. She was the third of seven children born to both the late Mr. and Mrs. William (Lollie) Hamilton. At the age of 15, she wed Mr. Eddie Pettis, Sr. and this union produced five children; Elizabeth, Eddie Jr., Robert, Charles and Margie.
Mrs. Pettis was a loving homemaker, a wonderful cook and an avid sports fan. She enjoyed watching her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as they participated in various sporting activities. Watching baseball (Atlanta Braves) and football were among her favorite pastimes.
Preceding her in death are her husband of 61 years, Mr. Eddie Pettis, Sr. and two sons, Robert and Charles, Sr. Mrs. Pettis is survived by three children, Elizabeth Porter, Eddie, Jr. (Lillian) Pettis, and Margie Wright; daughter-in-law, Jane Pettis: seventeen grandchildren; twenty eight great-grandchildren; eight great-great-grandchildren; two sisters, Florine Gross and Laney Bentley; a host of other relatives and friends.
Although we will miss the time spent, stories shared, and the wonderful cooking that she provided down through the years, we understand that it is more beneficial for her to return home to the Father and receive the crowns of glory that have been stored up for her. Therefore, this is not goodbye, because that is much too final. This is simply a farewell, for we shall see her again soon on the other side.
