Clarice Catherine Camp Meredith
Beaver Dam-Clarice Catherine Camp Meredith, 93, of Beaufort, South Carolina, passed from this life on September 2, 2022. Born July 31, 1929, she was the wife of the late Warner Meredith. A West Virginia native, Clarice was preceded in death by her parents, Archie and Ruby Camp, as well as by all her siblings. She is survived by three children: Edward (Sherry) Meredith, Caneyville, Catheryn (Steve) Raymer, Cromwell, and Lorri (Warren) Engle, Beaufort, South Carolina; seven granddaughters: Aerie Bibelhauser, Louisville, Sorrel Meredith, Caneyville, Jessica Ford, Houston, Texas, Crystal Drake, Louisville, Ashley Schaefer, Louisville, Lauren Padgett, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Eden Engle, Beaufort, South Carolina; 10 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
Plainspoken and with a wry wit, Clarice left Parkersburg, West Virginia following high school graduation in 1947 to work as a telephone operator. Once, on a bus ride, she met a Navy signalman on leave, Warner Meredith; she would later recall him as “pretty”. Married on February 27, 1951, they were together 57 years and called many places home: Portsmouth, Virginia, Corpus Christi, Texas and Morgantown, Caneyville and Beaver Dam, Kentucky. Following Warner’s death in 2008, Clarice moved to Beaufort, South Carolina, where she enjoyed time with family, politics, and snow-free winters. She was previously a member of the Morgantown and Beaver Dam Churches of Christ, and was a current member of the King Street Church of Christ in Beaufort.
A simple graveside service will be held Tuesday, September 6 at 10:00 a.m., followed by interment, at Sunnyside Cemetery in Beaver Dam, Kentucky.
