TOM BEAN-- Known over the community as "Aunt Titia", Mrs. Letitia Lackey celebrated
her ninety-first birthday here this month.  Because she had suffered a fall four weeks
ago and had not quite recovered from the injuries received, Mrs. Lackey spent the day
quietly, receiving only her children and grandchildren from Tom Bean and the county.

Four generations of the Lackey family are represented in the picture above.  Mrs. Lackey's
son, G.A. Lackey of Sherman is standing behind her, and to his right is his son, G.D.
Lackey.  Richard Lackey is the youngest member of the group.

Mrs. Lackey is a native of Kentucky, coming to Texas when she was twenty-two.  She was
married to H.A. Lackey the next year and the couple lived for many years on their farm
near White Mound.  She has lived a very active life and in later years has devoted
much time to cultivating flowers.  She is the mother of four children, Mrs. G.C. Fogle of
Whitewright; Mrs. Sue Minor, Tom Bean; A.L. Lackey of Brookston and G.A. Lackey of Sherman.
She has ten grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
