Elizabeth (Lib) Fuller Dudding, 94, of Eagle Rock, died Saturday, December 26, 2020 at The Glebe in Daleville.
Lib was born on June 22, 1926 in Eagle Rock, a daughter of the late James Austin Fuller and Delia May Bryant Fuller.
She was preceded in death by her husband in 1997, Carl S. (Sam) Dudding; three brothers, Chester Fuller, J.A. Fuller Jr., and E.B. Fuller; and four sisters, Helen Schumaker, Margaret Craft, Blanche Alderson, and Dorothy Miller.
Survivors include her son, Carl Michael Dudding of Eagle Rock; two sisters-in-Law, Mrs. Jerry (Marjorie) Dupree of Buchanan and Margaret Huffman of Madison Heights; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Lib graduated from Eagle Rock High School in 1944, where she enjoyed playing basketball. After graduation, she continued to work at the high school as the school secretary and also coached girls’ basketball. She later worked for Gala Industries for approximately 25 years in various capacities from shipping, to secretarial, and accounting, and other tasks.
Lib was a wonderful Wife, Mother, Sister, Aunt, and Neighbor, and will be sadly missed by many. Family was of most importance to her, and she was always ready to help whenever there was a need. She enjoyed reading, with American History as her favorite, and gardening, quilting, crocheting, ceramics, and knitting, and spending time with the numerous dogs, cats, and horses that she adopted throughout her lifetime. After retiring from Gala Industries in 1985, she and Sam enjoyed traveling throughout parts of the United States.
A graveside memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 2, 2021, at 2 p.m. in the Eagle Rock United Methodist Church Cemetery, with the Rev. Don McKinney officiating. Arrangements are being handled by Botetourt Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Good Samaritan Hospice, 2408 Electric Road, Roanoke, 24018, or to the Eagle Rock Fire and Rescue, 14762 Church Street, Eagle Rock, 24085.
