Mickie R. Batalo

February 5, 1925 — October 13, 2008

Mickie R. Batalo, age 83, passed away on Monday, October 13, 2008, in Roanoke, Virginia, where she lived for 3 years. She was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, Steve Batalo, who retired at Moody Air Force Base and with whom she lived in Hahira, Georgia, for more than 40 years.

After settling in Hahira, Mickie resumed her Civil Service career at Moody Air Force Base, serving as Executive Secretary for a long line of soon-to-be Generals. She was a volunteer board member and Director of the Moody/Southeastern Credit Union for 40 years. She served on the Hahira City Council, was in Eastern Star, and was a member of the Hahira Methodist Church. As a young Army Air Corps wife and mother, she supported Steve in several domestic postings and overseas, including Munich, Germany and Fairbanks, Alaska. While working full time for most of her life, she found time to get a Master's Degree in Marketing, rear two children, and provide supervision for Steve and 3 grandchildren.

She is survived by her two daughters and sons-in law, Roquette and Blake Griffin, formerly of Albany, Georgia, but now living in Roanoke, Virginia, and Mickie and Walter Muroff, of Atlanta, Georgia, and Joe Harrison, of Atlanta, and her three grandchildren, Steven Harrison, and wife Sandy, of Atlanta, Andrew Harrison of Atlanta, and Elisa Harrison of Portland, Oregon, one great-grandchild, Alexis Harrison, and various cousins. Special thanks go to Sharon and Jim Mundy, of Roanoke, Virginia, who were Mickie's devoted caregivers.
