      Daphne Beryl Yeomans
      ( February 26, 1929 - July 25, 2019 )

      Daphne Beryl (Lupton) Yeomans passed away in Gulf Breeze, FL on July 25th, 2019.

      She is predeceased by her husband, Luther Carroll Yeomans, and two daughters, Hopie Qual and Debra Rosenthal. She is also predeceased by her parents, Guy and Annis Lupton, her two sisters, Alma Boyd and Azalie D'Esopo, and her brother, Guy D. Lupton.

      Daphne was born in Beaufort, NC and grew up in Lennoxville. She is survived by her children, Jacquelyn Jimoi and her husband, George Lawrence, of Vermont, Jody Yeomans and his wife, Margaret Gibb, of Arizona, and Martin Yeomans and his wife, Sharon Yeomans, of Navarre, Florida. She is also survived by 10 grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

      Services will be held at Mt Zion Free Will Baptist Church near Cash Corner on Saturday, Aug 3rd with visitation beginning at 1 pm and funeral service beginning at 2pm. Burial will follow at Celestial Gardens in Vandemere. Flowers are welcome at the church or feel free to make a donation, in lieu of flowers, to Mt Zion OFWB Church, P O Box 964 Bayboro, NC 28515.

      Daphne will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother and active member of her church and community. She was greatly appreciated by her family, by her church and by her many friends. Among the things we will miss about her are her loving heart, her ready smile, her adventurous spirit, her great cooking and her willingness to help a friend.

      Daphne Beryl Lupton married (Luther) Carroll Yeomans on September 20, 1947. Over the years, as the family grew, they moved between North Carolina, Key West and Cocoa Beach, FL. Carroll was owner and captain of the shrimp boats "Del Ann" and "Miss Louise" and he followed the shrimp up and down the coast through the seasons. Daphne was often left to raise the children as best she could while Carroll wrangled a living from the sea. Such is the life of a fisherman's wife.

      During the 1950's and 60's and into the 70's, Daphne routinely served as a Classroom Mother for each of her children as they went through school. She also sewed their clothes (and majorette uniforms) and drove them and their friends to and from practice many, many days. She also worked full time in Key West as secretary and office manager at SIRCO Marine and Stock Island Electric.

      In the 1980's, Daphne went to adult learning and earned her high school diploma. In 1993 Daphne graduated magna cum laude with dual degrees in Business and Accounting at Pamlico Community College. After graduating, she was proud to serve as a longtime member of the Board of Trustees of PCC. She was also proud to serve as a leader and delegate in the NC Republican
      Party.

      She was accountant/bookkeeper at Muse Seafood for over 10 years, then for many more years was the Vandemere Town Clerk. During those years she was also a highly skilled cake decorator. She made and decorated many wedding cakes for family and friends, spending hours and hours in loving preparation. She loved raising a garden and keeping koi in her backyard ponds. Each year she canned figs from her own fig trees and shelled pecans from her own pecan trees.

      Daphne was a longtime member of the Mt Zion Baptist Church, near Cash Corner, where she shared many cakes and hearty dishes - and recipes ? at church functions and sang in the choir. Her reputation as a good cook was well known around this end of Pamlico County. She loved to see her family eating a good meal and always said, "When it comes to seafood, if it's not fried it's wasted!" There were a few exceptions, of course, like big pots of steamed oysters, served family style with everyone sitting on the floor and sharing in the love of good food...
