Betty Jeanette Buck Grieger, age 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, North Carolina. 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.
