Lottie Faye Sooter was born on April 2, 1911 in Stephenville, Texas to parents Samuel Moore and Annie Syler Moore. She graduated from Spur, Texas High School and later moved with her family to Shallowater where she met her future husband, William Bryan Sooter, Sr. Upon their marriage in 1934 she became the beloved mother of four children by her husband's deceased wife. She and her husband farmed there until their retirement to Cross Plains, Texas in 1964. In both places she was an active member of the Church of Christ serving as a Women's Bible Study leader and Sunday School teacher. She was an ardent quilter and enjoyed quilting with her friends in the Pioneer Community near Cross Plains. After her husband's death in 1974, she continued to live on their farms for the next twenty-five years where she raised cattle and worked in her garden. She has spent the last years of her life at Mesa Springs Nursing Home where she has been an inspiration to all who worked there. She was interested in world events and everyone enjoyed discussing them with her. Her quick dry wit was known to everyone and will be missed. Lottie was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, William Bryan Sooter, Sr.; four step-children: Marthie Lee Burgett, William B. Sooter, Jr., Joe Sooter, and Gertrude Meyers; and also two step-grandchildren: Joseph Dwight Sooter, and Michael Dee Sooter; and son-in-law, Bob Dixon. Lottie is survived and lovingly remembered by two sons: Don Sooter and wife, Frances, of Abilene; and Cecil Sooter, and wife, Carol, of Sonora, California. Also a daughter: Jane Dixon, of Monroe, Louisiana; nineteen grandchildren and step-grandchildren; and twenty-eight great-grandchildren. Memorials may be sent to the Donor's favorite charity.
