June 18 1935 — Oct. 20, 2013

Lois “Letitia” Beckett Ward was born in Placerville, Calif., on June 18 1935, and peacefully passed away at home on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013. She was surrounded by her granddaughter, Summer Reid, and great-granddaughters, Rebecca and Faith, as she embarked on her last journey.

Letitia was born to Orval Beckett and Lois Melichor of Mosquito. She is survived by her brother, Dwight Beckett of Placerville; children, Gwen Reid, David (Bucky), Sara Wylie and Gail (John) Butler, all of Placerville; step-children, Bill, Steven and Stanley Wylie and Kathren Lizott; 13 grandchildren; and 23 great-grandchildren.

Letitia was raised in Mosquito. She attended Mosquito School and El Dorado High School. She married Glen Wylie from Georgetown in 1951 and they had three children. Following their divorce she met and married Doil Setzer, divorced, and married Bill Ward. Again divorced in the 1980s, she reunited with Glen. They stayed together until his death in May of 2010.

Over the years Letitia worked at Sears, Francis Cloths Closet, Kay’s, Chateau Sierra, Denny’s the Quarter Horse Inn, and as a cook at Mt. Danaher for Cal State Division of Forestry. Her quick wit, zest for life and ability to tell a great story will be missed by those she’s left behind. This space is far too limited to sum up this incredible lady and her life.

Please join us for a celebration of Letitia’s life at 1 p.m., on Friday, Nov. 8, at Green Valley Church.
