Betty Jean Tedder was born on February 3, 1933 in Hallsboro, NC. to Stephen and Jeanette Tedder.  She was the oldest of 3 children.  Betty was a 1951 graduate of Hallsboro High School.  She and Calvin were married on July 19, 1952.  They were married for 64 years until his passing in 2016.  After working in management in several different positions over the years, she joined her husband at Kinlaw Furniture Store where she worked up until recent health issues forced her retirement.  Ms. Virginia Allen and Douglas Mckoy were special friends and co-workers of over 40 years at the Furniture Store.

“Grandma” Betty or “Aunt” Betty loved her family and extended family and friends.  She loved shopping and spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Many Sunday afternoons were spent fishing on her pier and she liked to joke that she wasn’t a fisherman, she was a “catcher”.  Betty had a quick wit and a great sense of humor.

Betty was a member of Elizabethtown Baptist Church from 1958 until her death.  She sang in the choir and served in many different capacities over the years.  She loved her friends and church family, especially the ladies of the Miriam Clark Sunday School Class.
