BETTY LEE HUGGINS, daughter of the late Matthew Huggins, Sr. and Annie Mae Huggins, was born July 1, 1940 in Baltimore, MD. Betty was the fourth child of ten children, eight of who proceeded her in death. After a sudden illness, Betty departed this life on December 21, 2019.
Betty received her formal education through Baltimore City Public Schools in which she graduated from Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School in Baltimore, MD. After attending high school Betty began her career working for companies such as Westinghouse, Union Memorial Hospital, E.I.L Instruments, and Danfoss Group. Betty worked many years at Danfoss Group as a QC Tech in which she later retired in 2004.
Betty also known as “Bett Lee” loved many things in life. She was an avid sports lover, who loved the Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Ravens, and enjoyed all other types of sports. She enjoyed spending time reminiscing with old friends and family members. Betty was a very loving person who would give her last if she had it to give. Betty always would show a great deal of strength and encouragement to her family. During phone conversations, one of her favorite lines was, “what…that’s a shame.” Before saying her goodbyes in her affectionate tone, she would often say “mmmhmm uh huh” and she would always have the last word. Family functions won’t be the same without her famous fried crabs and macaroni salads. She had several devoted friends Laritha Young, Constance Moore and Dorothy Earle. Everyone knew Betty was a fisty little lady who was determined to do things her own way. She showed her incredible strength until the very end and never giving up. She leaves a legacy for her family and friends that will never be forgotten.
Betty leaves to mourn: two daughters, Vanessa Terry, and son -in-law Donald Terry Sr.; daughter Madonna Huggins; one brother Matthew Huggins, Sr. and sister-in-law, Elaine Huggins; aunts and uncle Lille B. Huggins, Mary Huggins, and William Huggins; grandchildren Donald Terry Jr., Shemika Terry, Vaughn Tucker, and Jordan Terry; one great grandson, Jaxon Tucker, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
She will be truly missed by all that knew her in life.
