Betty Ann Pitman, 88, of Pelham, South Carolina, met her Lord and Savior the evening of September 18, 2022.

The daughter of the late Frank Monroe Pitman and Ethel Mae Martin Pitman, she was a Christian and life-long active member of Pelham First Baptist Church. She was a faithful servant to her church and community. Betty Ann retired from The Dow Chemical Company.

She was an avid sports fan and played softball for many years with various teams throughout the upstate. Though softball was her love, she also enjoyed bowling and a round of golf. She was always cheering on the Atlanta Braves and The University of South Carolina Gamecocks.

She was predeceased by two sisters, Lottie Pitman Ward and Frances Pitman Merritt; and eight brothers, Claude Pittman, Marvin Pitman, Grover Pitman, Ralph Pitman, Fred Pitman, J.T. Pitman, Carl Pitman, and Alvin Pitman.
