Dora Dean Jefferson Ballou, 85, of Beaufort, died Friday, April 12, 2013, at Carteret General Hospital after a brief but difficult battle with cancer.

Mrs. Ballou was born on October 10, 1927, in Washington, NC, to Ottis Reynolds Jefferson and Odell Waters Jefferson. Dora Dean served in many capacities including Secretary-Treasurer of the Planning Committee for the Carteret County Library, secretary of the board for the Salvation Army, and Sunday school teacher for many years at Ann Street United Methodist Church. She began her career as bookkeeper at the Carteret County News-Times. She worked for many years as partner and bookkeeper for Holden, her husband of 66 years. Dora Dean loved her yard that she developed into a lovely garden. She was an avid walker and continued walking up to 7 miles a day until she was 80. She loved bridge, was an excellent player, and had an in-depth knowledge of the game. She and Holden enjoyed making significant contributions to the Duke University Medical Center and the Methodist Children's Home. She loved serving her family and was especially known for her homemade bread that she continued to bake until a few weeks before her hospitalization.
