January 24, 1931 - December 11, 2020
Stone – Betty “MawMaw” Jean Stone, age 89, of Hampton, FL, passed away in the comfort of her own home on December 11, 2020, with her loving family by her side. She was the eldest child of eight, born on January 24, 1931 in Belmont, North Carolina, to the late Edgar Cobb and Beulah Mae Linebarger Cobb. Betty grew up in North Carolina, tending to her younger siblings, and where she began working at the Soda Fountain in 8th grade. She met the love of her life, Delmas “Bill” Brevard Stone, walking down the street. They were married on January 27, 1951, and they shared 68 beautiful years together. In the 1960’s, Betty and Bill moved to Hampton, FL, where they built their family and made their home. Once their young twins started school, Betty worked in the Hampton Elementary cafeteria for 8 years. Afterwards, she devoted her life to her children, and stayed at home to take care of her ever-growing family. MawMaw enjoyed gardening, baking, and sewing. She made the best biscuits, and sewed clothing for her kids, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She even sewed the bridesmaid dresses for family weddings. More than anything, Betty loved her family with all her heart. She will be missed dearly. She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her brothers, Bill Cobb and Jerome Cobb; her sisters, Rose Cobb, Helen Wallace, and Brenda Warren; and her daughter, Toni Fugua. Betty is survived by her children, Linda (Buck) Matthews of Montverde, FL, Billy Stone of Starke, FL, David (Cassie LeVasseur) Stone of Hampton, FL, Larry (Sandra) Stone of Hampton, FL and Lori Stone of Hampton, FL; her brother, Johnny Cobb of Railey, NC; her sisters, Alyce “Snookie” Pettus and Carol Stowe, both of Charlotte, NC; her 7 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren; and her Jack Russel Terrier, Charlie Stone. A Celebration of Betty’s Life will be held on Friday, December 18, 2020, at 11:00 am at Archie Tanner Memorial Chapel with Brother Buck Matthews officiating. Internment will follow at Conner Cemetery in Starke, FL. Arrangements are under the care and direction of V.
