Betty Jeane Lawson Hewitt


Betty Jeane Lawson Hewitt, 91, of Cleveland, passed away at Bradley Healthcare and Rehab on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022.

She was born on April 27, 1931, in Cleveland, to her father and mother, August and Bobbie Lawson. She had been a resident of Cleveland her entire life. Betty was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and this gave her the strength to endure to the end.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Harold Van Hewitt; mother, Bobbie Marshall Lawson Gee; father, August Owen Lawson; stepfather, John Henry Gee of Polk County; brother, Jarvis Jack (Jo) Lawson of Clermont, Ohio; daughter-in-law, Charlotte Vernon Hewitt; brother and sisters-in-law, Bill Hewitt (Nancy) of Georgia, Hoyt Hewitt of McMinn County, and Helen Earls (Andy), Dean Hewitt and Bobby Dale Hewitt, all of Cleveland.

She is survived by her sons, Gary Hewitt (Evelyn), Bobby Hewitt, Darrell Michael Hewitt and Barry Hewitt (Robin), all of Cleveland; sister, Linda Gee Emerson (Ken) of Polk County; brothers and sisters-in-law, Jean Varner Hewitt of McMinn County, Dorothy Hewitt Overgaard of Louisiana, and Betty McGuire Hewitt, Buddy Hewitt (Gloria), Martha Wade Hewitt, Mickey Hewitt (Shirline), all of Cleveland; and many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

We would like to thank the staff on Wing 4 at Bradley Healthcare and Rehab Center for their wonderful care.

There will be a private family graveside service as Betty wished. The interment will be held at Hilcrest Memorial Gardens in Cleveland.

Serenity of Cleveland Funeral Home and Cremation Services is in charge of arrangements.
