Beyond family

LeEttie was the essence of sweetness.  She was an avid reader, who, while she was dusting the house as a young girl,  found her parents’ love letters, so she promptly read them.  LeEttie was well known for her cooking and she hosted many family and church dinners.  Special family favorites were her chicken and dumplings, Italian cream cake, and her apple pie.  She liked stories and jokes, so she was always chuckling and laughing.


In addition to her family, LeEttie loved her church.  She was a faithful member of the Samaria Primitive Baptist Church at McCarr, Pike, Kentucky, after her baptism in 1943.

Adam, who was a coal miner, died on January 22, 1954, and LeEttie died on January 12, 1997. They are buried on the Anderson Hatfield Memorial Cemetery.
