Betty Lou Shepherd Dyer, age 91, of Asheboro passed away Tuesday, November 22, 2022 at Clapp’s Nursing Home.
Mrs. Dyer was born December 14, 1930 in Albemarle to William and Pauline Shepherd. She was a member of Balfour Baptist Church and was retired from Asheboro Hosiery.
Mrs. Dyer was a volunteer at Randolph Hospital and completed 40,000 hours of service during her 40 years there. April Thornton of Randolph Hospital calculated that Mrs. Dyer donated close to $1 million into service hours. Her enthusiasm to serve the Randolph Hospital community started when her mother was in a bad car wreck as she watched the staff and volunteers assist patients. She sought out to join Randolph Hospital as a volunteer and helped many people over the years. She stood firm that there is always something that could be done or a way to help out as a volunteer, and through the years, Randolph Hospital became her second home.
In addition to her parents, Mrs. Dyer was preceded in death by her husband Ray T. Dyer, daughters, Paula Dyer Morris, Diane Dyer Watson and infant son, Craig Dean Dyer.
Mrs. Dyer is survived by her grandson, Justin Peele and fiancé Chad Robinette of Asheboro; niece, Kathy Haywood of Star.
