OBITUARY

Inez Louise Douthitt

September 24, 1920April 7, 2021

Inez was born in Omega, Illinois on September 24, 1920. She was one of 13 children born to Huldah Marlow and Chesley Paul See. Inez was 13 when her Mother passed away. She quit school in the 6th grade to assume responsibilities of the remaining 8 members of the family still at home. She married the love of her life, Clifford, on December 30, 1939 in St. Charles, Mo. They were a couple from the day they met and celebrated over 76 years of marriage until Clifford’s death in 2016. They were transferred to Longview in 1950 where Clifford joined Mid-Valley Pipeline Company. They were members of Greggton United Methodist Church. Cliff and Inez enjoyed many years of camping in their 5th wheel travel trailer, South Texas in the Winter and Colorado in the summer. They did everything together. They moved to Dallas in 2013 to be near family.

Inez was a seamstress “extraordinaire”! She made everything from wedding dresses to uniforms and everything in between. In her later years she stayed busy doing alterations. She loved the visits this line of sewing offered.

She was an amazing, loving mother to their 3 children and spouses, 8 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. Inez was a fabulous cook and all the family enjoyed feasting on her dishes when visiting. We can all name a “favorite” recipe of hers and requested she make it upon our arrival. She always had a fresh cake or pie ready for the many friends that would “drop by” for a visit and a cup of coffee.

She is survived by her three children: Larry & Cathy Douthitt of Sugar Land, (soon to be Temple; Richard & Judy Douthitt of Fairview: and Nancy & Tom Aldinger of Dallas. She is survived by 8 grandchildren and their spouses and 19 great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Inez’s memory be made to the Greggton United Methodist Church in Longview, or the Alzheimer’s Association.

To the family of Inez Douthitt, your mother was a big part of my sisters, my Mother and my life. She made many outfits for all of us for many years. She helped Mother to have clothes that fit her nicely. She had the swollen arm which many get with breast cancer. It was fun to visit as she made our clothes. Inez and your dad were good friends of my parents for many years. We lost our parents in 1995 and 1996. I hated to miss her 100 th birthday. My daughter, Erica, knew her too for she made clothes for her. She bought a table and chairs for her home that your dad made.

To Larry, Nancy and Richard.. Sending my condolences on the loss of your beautiful mother. I was one of the lucky ones Mrs. Douthitt sewed clothes for. She was indeed talented and so generous in sharing the fruits of her talent with others. One of my (now old) photos that I treasure most is me wearing a gorgeous dress she made for me (circa early 70s). I am so sorry for your loss. Sue Johnson-Dietz, Fairview, TX
