Shirley J. Letot, 91, of Mount Pleasant, passed away Friday, April 22, 2016 at Mission Manor nursing home in Mount Vernon. Mrs. Letot was born September 1, 1924 in LeCompte, LA to Clarence A. and Beulah Johnson Strother. She attended and graduated school from Del Rio High in 1941. In 1948, she married John R. Letot in San Marcos, TX. Mr. and Mrs. Letot were long time residents of Mount Pleasant, having moved here in 1963. Together they spent over 40 years raising their son and living a lifetime of memories. She worked at Millhouse Supply as a bookkeeper for over 20 years, where she met her best friend, Helen Hutson. Shirley was an active member of St. Andrews United Methodist Church for over 50+ years, also serving with the United Methodist Women Organization. Mrs. Letot had been a long time member of Retired Teachers Association and Fine Arts Club, as well. Her hobbies included playing cards with friends, attending movies, and of course, shopping. Above all, her greatest blessing and what brought her the absolute most joy was spending time with her beloved family. She adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, telling anyone who would listen stories about them. Her Louisiana family also had a very, very special place in her heart.
