TALLAHASSEE, FL Betty Dameron Fogleman passed away on January 9, 2013 in Tallahassee, Florida after a brief illness, with her family at her side. Betty was born on April 2, 1924 in the town of Liberty, North Carolina to Carrie and Vernon Herbert Dameron, the youngest of four lovely children.
Betty grew up, married, built a home, and raised a family in the town that she loved for 88 years. After attending Greensboro College, she returned to Liberty to run the family's veneer business during World War II. She continued to work in the industry until the ripe age of 86 when she retired and moved to Tallahassee to be with family and state-of-the-art medical services. Until her death, she remained an active member of the Cherry Laurel Independent Living community, playing Bingo, taking up bocce ball and shaking it up a bit (a jitterbug trophy holder) when there was music with dinner.
Known for her independence, keen mind, humor, generosity, southern cooking, and needlework, she is greatly missed. She is preceded in death by her charming and loving husband, Richard Fogleman and her talented son, Rick. She is survived by her daughter, Eve Cantral, of Tallahassee, and her granddaughter, Catherine. Also surviving are her nephews, Chip and Dusty Dameron of Chapel Hill, who were always in her thoughts.
