  1. We will miss Lettye so much and will always remember her warm smile….she always spoke her mind and made us laugh…love to all, Shelley & Colby

  2. —–“Don’t stand on my grave and weep. I’m not there.”—–

    Somewhere there is a bridge table and smiling old man, both welcoming her home.

    Goodbye Grandmaw. You were truly one of a kind.

    We will always remember with you with love.

  3. Ed, Linda, Charlie & Doug; Lettye was a very special person to Bev & I and we both loved her very much. Christmas at the Powell’s will never quite be same with her passing. She was a great lady that spoke her mind and had a great sense of wit. She lived a long and wonderful life and had the joy of seeing her three great grand children before passing on. May she rest in peace and God keep watch over her soul.

  4. We know for sure that when Lettye arrived at the Pearly Gates,she probably wanted to know where is my glass of wine and a deck of cards !! She was one of a kind and we’re very proud to have known her. God Bless.
