Lettie Mozelle Washington was born on June 21st,1936 and transitioned to be with our Heavenly Father on September 13th, 2021. She is the first daughter of Robert Lewis Washington and Mattie Thomas Washington. Loving mother of Gregory and Avery, grandmother of Pierre and Tella, great grandmother of Zion, Ziggy, and Zen, the heart of her life.
Lettie moved from North Carolina to NYC in 1953 and never looked back, Brooklyn was home. She always believed in working and making it on your own, which she did very well. Lettie started her career in the upholstery and garment industries. It was there where she learned how to upholster furniture and make clothing. Some of her sons fondest memories are of sitting on furniture that their mother made. They also remember how fabulous their mother looked in the clothes she made.
After Lettie retired from NYC Transit Authority where she excelled into management, it was time to see the world, four times over. Getting on a cruise ship brought her much joy and excitement. She enjoyed going to the Captain Ball, meeting new people who later became friends, and buying souvenirs for family back home.
Lettie was always a mother, a grandmother, a hard worker, a worshiper of God, a world traveler, but most of all, she enjoyed life….and all of that, as Lettie would say. She lived her life to the fullest the way she wanted to. She was in a good place when her time came. Lettie would want you to remember her as you knew her, good memories of an Independent Woman.
Lettie Mozelle Washington….God Bless You!
