Ms. Ledbetter Passes

Mary Louise (Ed) Ledbetter was a loving sister, aunt, cousin, friend, teacher and coach to all those who knew her. Although she enjoyed reading, movies, trips, and sports, her heart was at home. Living in the house in which she was born on February 20, 1927, gave her great pleasure. She was an avid Lady Vol fan and member of the Lady Vols Booster-Her Club. A 1945 graduate of Lenoir City High School, she received her B. S. from Huntington College in 1949 and her Masters Degree from Peabody in 1963. She was inducted into the LCHS Sports Hall of Fame in 2006 and received the Ron Tilley Service Award in 2013. She worked in the Lenoir City School System for 60 years as teacher, coach, and attendance supervisor; she served as cheerleader and basketball coach and L'Cean editorial sponsor. She worked local elections for many years. She loved traveling, especially to see relatives and ballgames, both Panthers and Lady Vols.
