Lottie was born on February 14, 1931 in Jones County to Lott and Thelma (Beasley) Godfrey. She grew up in Anson, graduated from Anson High School in 1949, and married Charles McCaleb on June 24, 1955 after his service in the United States Air Force. They moved to Abilene in 1965, where she was employed by Onxy Refining Co., McWood Corp., and later retired from Abilene Christian University in 1993. Lottie was a member of the Oldham Lane Church of Christ.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband in 2002, three brothers and their spouses, Franklin (Margey), Bill (Ruthie), and James (Alma), and her twin sister Dottie Spraberry and husband Ernest.
Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law Charla and Carl Miertschin of Rushford, Minnesota; two grandchildren, Stacey Amodeo and husband Toby of Washington, D.C., and Joshua of Rushford, Minnesota (to whom she loved being Grannie).
Donations to the Oldham Lane Church of Christ or to your chosen charity would be a loving memorial.
The family first began in the funeral business in 1933. The Hamil's legacy, beginning with the Elliott's to John and Jo Ann Hamil and now continuing with Robert and Karla Hamil, is to serve families in their time of need.
