Sherman Public Library
Special to The Democrat
TOM BEAN-- Known over the community as "Aunt Titia", Mrs. Letitia
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.
