ORANGEBURG -- Adelyn Grae Bateman, 4, of Orangeburg, gained her angel's wings Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018. She was born March 4, 2014, to John Townsend Bateman and Krystal Lee Fischer.
Private funeral services will be held Wednesday, Dec. 5, with the Rev. Judd Jordan officiating. Private burial will follow.
In her short life, Addy touched so many. She will forever be remembered for her gracious and loving heart. She loved her family, friends, animals (except spiders) and our Lord Jesus Christ. Addy never met a stranger and was known to go up to most anyone, no matter the place, and say, "Hello, I'm Addy Grae Bateman. What's your name?"
Her sweet smile would light up a room. She had the gift of coaxing a smile or laugh, no matter your mood. When she smiled back, her face would light up the room, and her eyes would sparkle. Her whole body conveyed her message of love and happiness to everyone who had the honor of meeting her. There never was such a small person with such a large heart.
Addy left so many special memories with her parents, John Townsend Bateman and Krystal Lee Fischer; and her brother, John Fischer Bateman. She is also survived by grandparents, John (Susan) Bateman and Patrick (Tammy) Fischer; great-grandmother, Eleanor Jones; aunts and uncles, Kelly (Shauna) Fischer and Leon (Nikki) Zorn; and cousins, Corey, Alex, Hannah, Lexi and Cody Fischer; along with her "girls," Alyssa, Cheyenne and Skylar Zorn.
Memorials may be made to Embark Church, P.O. Box 2893, Orangeburg, SC 29116.
