Wife of James "Jim" Monroe Bateman.
Annie Jane, "Mamaw", was my paternal grandmother. She was the daughter of Jacob Milton Simms and Abigail McBride Simms. She married James "Jim" Monroe Bateman, "Papaw", on June 29, 1911 in Glen Rose, TX, Somervell Co. She was a mere 4' 9" tall and a ball of fire. When it is said that dynamite comes in little packages it is describing my Mamaw. She and Papaw raised three good children, Harley (my Dad), L. F. "Ted" and Maurine "Sis". All grew up to have good families. There are eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She lived to a ripe old age of 96 years. Fiesty lady, I loved her dearly and miss her.
Annie Jane Bateman, 96, of Happy Haven Nursing Center died at 9 a.m. Monday at the center. Graveside services will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Hamlin East Cemetery in Hamlin, directed by Elliott Hamil Funeral Home, 542 Hickory St.
O. B. Proctor of Oak Street Church of Christ will officiate.
She was born Nov. 7, 1886, in Glen Rose, where she was reared. She married James Monroe Bateman in 1911 in Glen Rose. They moved to Abilene in 1933 from Portales, NM. Mr. Bateman died in 1951. She was a homemaker and a member of the Church of Christ.
Survivors include two sons, Lowell F. of 2602 S. 22nd St. and Harley D. of 2902 Waverly St.; a daughter, Mrs. Ray (Maurine B.) Sell of Petersburg; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
