Lottie Hinton Sevier
Lottie Hinton Sevier of Dallas completed her long and well-lived life journey on Sept. 18, 2013.
Born in the country near Sikes, La., on Feb. 5, 1917, she became deaf at the young age of six. Thanks to loving and insightful parents she was able to join a wonderful deaf community, initially through the Louisiana School for the Deaf in Baton Rouge and later through the fellowship of the deaf community in Dallas, Houston and throughout the United States.
She was married in 1942 to her husband Francis Coy Sevier who preceded her in death in 2012. Together they lived a life full of the satisfaction of the most important things in life: each other, family and friends.
To these two wonderful parents were born two boys, Coy Sevier and wife, Joyce, of New Boston, and Sam Sevier and wife, Sher, of Sulphur Springs. The family continued to grow including six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, all of which live in loving awe of this amazing grandmother and great-grandmother.
She was a virtual fire hydrant of fun and energy and to meet and know her was to feel instant warmth and a most unusual spirit. She is missed but her family legacy and story will endure for family generations to come.
Services will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013, at Grove Hill Memorial Chapel in Dallas.
No formal visitation, but an open visitation is planned preceding the funeral from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers the family requests contributions be made to the Dallas Community Center of the Deaf, 4215 Maple Ave, Dallas, Texas 75219, in memory of Francis and Lottie Sevier.
