Betty Ann Hard Rhodes of Marietta, 92, died Wednesday, June 12. She is survived by two sons, David of Marietta and Donald of Huntersville, NC, two grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. Betty Ann grew up in Montgomery, graduated from Birmingham Southern College, and received her Masters in Chemistry from Ohio State University. During the war, she did research to produce a mold—free cloth used by the military. She made her life-long home in Cobb County where she was involved in local politics to improve the Cobb County school system. She served two terms as Justice of the Peace, receiving notoriety for her wedding ceremonies. In later years she was active in bringing in-patient hospice care to Cobb County, where she also served as a volunteer. A private memorial service will be held by family and friends.
