Fayetteville — Lottie Moore Hedgepett passed away peacefully on November 21, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. She watches over her husband of 67 years, Bill, who recently passed away on October 18, 2022.

She was born in Rocky Mount, NC on December 4, 1935 to Luther Lee Moore and Kathy Blanche Moore. She attended Rocky Mount High School, where she met and married her high school sweetheart, William (Bill) Lee Hedgepeth.

In 1967, she moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina, where she was reunited with her two sisters, Jean Harris and Phyllis Perry. While in Fayetteville, she and her sister, Phyllis, owned and operated the Emporium gift shop under the Eiffel Tower in the Bordeaux Mall. It was one of the first “unique gift” gift shops in the Fayetteville area. After that, she worked for many years at the Highland dry cleaners. She prided herself on dressing professionally and impeccably, even in the scorching heat of the dry cleaners in the summer in Fayetteville. She then worked at Treadaway’s Florist for many years. She enjoyed working at these popular businesses in Fayetteville and made many friends over the years, relationships that continue to this day.

She was preceded in death by her husband Bill of 67 years. Also, her son-in-law Tommy Colbert, her parents, stepfather Joseph Hager and siblings. She is survived by daughters Pam Hedgepeth and Beth H. Colbert, son William (Bill) L. Hedgepeth II and his wife Dede L. Hedgepeth, grandchildren Ashley Roman and her husband Frank, Ben, Hannah and her fiance Cooper Luce, William Lee III, great-grandchildren Whalen and Kendall, her sister Jean Harris and sisters-in-law Mabel Moore, Peggy Anderson and Marie Hedgepeth, all of North Carolina.

Family and friends were her priority. She enjoyed being with her family, especially at Christmas, and hosted the famous Hedgepeth Christmas Eve parties each year for family and friends. She enjoyed being with extended family at our annual 4th of July family beach vacation. She enjoyed trips to Niagara Falls, Las Vegas, Atlantic City and other places with her husband Bill and other family members. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with the love of her life, Bill. In his obituary we stated that he was “the pillar of the family”. She was his “rock”.

She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, aunt, sister. Her lasting legacy will be grace, compassion, kindness, patience, joy and a determination to put the happiness of others before her own. We are deeply saddened by our loss and will miss her beyond words.

We would like to thank Cape Fear Valley Hospice and Kelly for their exceptional care, as well as the many people at Hospice who helped our mother through this difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to United Way of Cumberland County, PO Box 303, Fayetteville, NC 28302, or go to www.unitedway-cc.org in memory of Lottie M. Hedgepeth.

A private family ceremony for Bill and Lottie Hedgepeth will be held at a later date.
