Barbara Lilly Hampton Rosser

Barbara L Hampton Rosser passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Monday, February 8th, 2021 after a brave battle with Breast cancer on her terms.

Born March 27, 1939 in Lamar, Missouri, she was the oldest of three children born to the late Charles E Lilly & Donna McMurphy Lilly.
After her children were of school age, she worked as a Teachers Aide at Butler-Baker Elementary School in Eatonton, then went on to work at Georgia Power Company Construction Division, at Plant Harllee Branch, Wallace Dam, & Bartletts Ferry.
After Georgia Power, she later became an independent contractor, working as a flag escort driver for Horton Homes, then independently for a company moving oversize concrete beams throughout the South East.
She enjoyed reading, working in her flower beds, caring for her fur babies, & being fiercely devoted to the well being of her children, affectionately earning the nickname of “The Warden” Many friends & acquaintances respected her, but knew better than to try & cross her.

She is survived by her children, Cheri Hampton, Gerald (Hoodlum), & Walter A Hampton, Jr., all of Eatonton; and a brother Richard Lilly of Granbury, Texas, two grandchildren, & numerous nieces & nephews; as well as Molly – her devoted furbaby. The family would also like to acknowledge her care giver, & other daughter Gay Lankford. Thanks as well to Peaceful Purpose Hospice of Georgia.
