Lillie Geraldine Hewell Hulsey, age 77 of Alto, passed away on Sunday, February 28, 2021 at her residence.

Born in Lula, on August 7, 1943, she was a daughter of the late George Franklin and Eliza Marie Crumley Hewell. Geraldine was retired from Ethicon and attended Pine Grove Holiness Church. She lived a full life and loved her family. One of her greatest joys in life was attending church, singing and worshipping God as she had for the last 59 years. Geraldine was an avid bird watcher and enjoyed watching them in her yard where she also enjoyed her flowers. She was a huge fan of the WDUN radio station and was lovingly known as “The Possum Queen”. Geraldine was loved by many and will be greatly missed!

In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her brothers, Daniel, David, Albert, and Darrell Hewell.

Survivors include son and daughter-in-law, Kevin and Lawanda Hulsey of Norris, Tennessee; daughters and sons-in-law, Deneen Ansley of North Carolina, Pauletta and Larry Tilson of Demorest and Valisa and David Tilson of Alto; 13 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren; sister, Oneda Phagan of Lula; brothers and sister-in-law, Nelson and Elizabeth Hewell of Alto and George Hewell of Mt. Airy; numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 2 pm on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 in the Chapel of McGahee-Griffin and Stewart with Bro. Graylen Armour and Bro. Jeff Sparkman officiating. Interment will follow in Antioch Holiness Church Cemetery with Bro. Junior Robinson officiating.

What a "Joyful Lady" who shared her love, smile and laughter with all. She was "The Possum Queen" for sure! She must be giving the angels a good laugh. Also, remember enjoying her poetry. We loved her. Blessing to all of her family on your loss and may God's Great Comfort be upon each of you.

Valisa, I am so sorry to learn of your mom's passing. She was a fine lady, a Godly woman. I know how badly you will miss her. I imagine she is singing with my mother and the angels this morning. I love you and hope you know that you are in my prayers.
