Mrs. Rials, 81, of Brookhaven, passed from this life July 25, 2019 at Diversicare Living Center. She was born Jan. 12, 1938, in Biloxi, Mississippi, to her parents, the late Emmett Ernest Justice and Myra Dora Garrett Justice. She was retired from Packard Electric and was a member of Mallalieu United Methodist Church. Mrs. Betty was not an idle person. She was involved with her church family as well as other community and county sponsored clubs including LLL, 50 Plus, ILR, the Order of the Eastern Star and Woodman of the World. She enjoyed playing cards and dominos with her friends and spending valuable time with her family. She loved the beauty of flowers and her yard was a testimony of that love.

She is preceded in death by her husband, John E. Rials Sr.; parents; sons, John E. Rials Jr., and Paul Christopher Rials; and her brother, Billy Justice.

Those left behind to cherish her sweet memory are, her daughter, Lisa Rials Jackson (A.J.); sister, June Justice Bradford; two grandchildren, Christy Jackson Kramer (Chris) and Melissa Jackson Henderson (Cody); five great grandchildren, Julie, Jeffrey and Jordan Kramer, and Macy and Meredith Henderson. She is also survived by her special friend, Gloria Kramer, and her dog, Peppy.
