Barbara “Beth” Elizabeth Todd Dunbar, 77, of Lexington passed away September 5, 2019, surrounded by loved ones.
Beth was born to the late Ralph and Mary Todd on December 9, 1941 in Anderson, South Carolina. She was a 1959 honor graduate of Crescent High School and went on to receive a certificate to practice as a registered nurse from Anderson Memorial Hospital in 1963. A proponent of lifelong learning, she began pursuing a college degree at Columbia College in the late 1970’s.

She is also survived by four grandchildren; Taylor Rhett of Pinopolis; Garrett and Cooper Herron of Greer; Jacob Dunbar of Lexington; and two siblings; Rosemary Bowie and Roger Todd of Anderson.
Beth was an encouraging and supportive mother and grandmother. Known for her strength, intelligence, humor, compassion and culinary skills, she will be sorely missed. She retired from nursing at Lexington Medical Center after many years of caring for others.
