Lettie loved, music, gardening, traveling, animals, knitting and of course her family. She was as feisty as they came, and incredibly loving and caring. Lettie always believed in the importance of family traditions which included Sunday suppers and holiday gatherings. She will be dearly missed and forever remembered.
We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the staff at Rocky Mountain Village where Lettie resided for the past 21/2 years, and to Doctor Tara Pigott for her wonderful care.
