Betty Jeanette Buck Grieger, 89, loving wife of Frederick, peacefully passed away on April 4, 2021…. a beautiful Easter Sunday. She was born to Orin Jackson Buck and Ruby Jeanette Bell Buck on July 1, 1931 in Wilmington, N.C. Betty was preceded in death, in addition to her parents, by her sister, Helen Fay Buck Richins.
This kind and generous spirit, Betty was an avid reader and gourmet cook. She enjoyed all the wondrous beauty of nature found at her treasured North Carolina coast and the lushness of East Tennessee. She was fond of hiking the bluffs overlooking the Tennessee River as she searched for and identified the wildflowers and the many birds of the area. She was always in the company of one of her beloved dogs.
Betty is survived by her devoted husband, Frederick, who she married June 3, 1961; brothers, Durwood Jackson Buck, Gerald Ray (Virginia) Buck and George Nathan (Dana) Buck; their families and many friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions, in Betty’s memory, be made to Lakemoor Legacy Park and Garden where Betty often roamed near her home, or mail to Lakemoor Hills Resource Council, P.O. Box 10435, Knoxville, TN 37939.
Funeral services will be private.
