Cathy Jeanne Littrell

March 20, 1955 – October 29, 2021

Cathy Jeanne Littrell went to be with her Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ on October 29, 2021 at the age of 66. She was born on March 20, 1955 to Donald and Ramona Littrell, the first of six children.

Cathy was blessed in this life to be a beloved daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend. She enjoyed recipe books, canning, gardening, cooking, baking, decorating cakes, the Northwest Washington Fair, and camping. Cathy left a legacy of love. People remember the way she made them feel when she walked into a room. Loved, seen, and valued. Cathy dedicated her life to spending time with her family and friends. She cared lovingly for her mama, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Cathy always had time for the people she loved, and her presence will be dearly missed. Cathy will live on through the legacy of love she shared with each person she came into contact with. Cathy’s love for Jesus Christ and her ability to show His love will be remembered. Two of Cathy’s favorite scriptures to share were Matthew 6:34 and Joshua 1:9.

She is survived by her father, Donald R Littrell; sisters Darla (Mike) Valdez, Linda (Tony) Thompson; brothers Howard (Keren) Littrell, Kenneth Littrell, Russ (Suzanne) Littrell; children Rachel Delano, William “Doug” Turberville, Rebekah (Nathan) Balcom; daughter-in-law Maria Turberville; and 14 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, and over 50 nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother, Ramona Littrell.
