Hattie was one of the original telephone operators for Greenville, AL. She was known as a “transplant Texan” and lived in Harker Heights, Texas for 30 years. She enjoyed caring for her children; and it was not unusual to have up to 30 neighborhood children playing in her yard at any time. She enjoyed baking and cake decorating, and baked wedding cakes for her children and other family members. She loved music and dancing and always found pleasure in giving to others.
Hattie was preceded in death by her father, Robert Eugene Talley; mother, Hattie Inez Lewis Talley; daughter, Frankie Kay Pressley; two brothers, Gerald Hansel Talley and Herman Hershel Talley; James Albert Lewis; and her grandmother, Hattie Helen Holliday Lewis.
