Terry Fitton Dammann passed away on October 12, 2014 at her home in Chevy Chase, MD.
She was born in 1944 in Hamilton, Ohio, the daughter of Stuart M. Fitton and Jeannette H. Fitton of Oxford, Ohio. A graduate of Carleton College, Terry was a librarian and teacher throughout her life, most recently at the Washington Waldorf School. An avid gardener and horticulturalist, she tended one of the largest residential yards in Washington, DC for 24 years. As a volunteer, she devoted her time to historic preservation, the neighborhood tree committee, the U.S. Botanic Garden, and her most beloved National Arboretum. She volunteered at the Fern Valley Native Plant collection of the Arboretum for over 10 years. A devotee of Washington, DC’s cultural offerings and supporter of environmental conservation and the outdoors, she visited parks regularly with a particular love for Rocky Mountain National Park. A wonderful wife, mom, mother-in-law, and sister, she is greatly loved and will be missed.
Terry is survived by her husband, John Francis (Jeff) Dammann, Jr. and her son, Frank Dammann and his wife, Susan Fort; her sister, Heidi Fitton; and her brother, Sam Fitton.
