Letty Ann Daggett was born July 12, 1929 to Emil and Lettie (Hoover) Dietz in Hartley, Iowa. She spent her youth in the Hartley area and attended school there, graduating with the class of 1946.
On December 6, 1948, Letty was united in marriage to Harold Frank Daggett at Elk Point, South Dakota. They were blessed with six children: Bruce, Charlotte, Wayne, Connie, Ronnie, and Bonnie. Their married life was spent farming in the Melvin, Iowa area where they also raised their family. Letty's life revolved around caring for her growing family, attending their school functions, or helping Harold outside when she could. No one ever went hungry with Letty in the kitchen. Whatever came out of the oven was always a crowd-pleaser...especially her homemade pies!
Harold passed away in 1999; Letty eventually left the farm near Melvin, and moved to Sanborn, Iowa. She enjoyed her years living in town and rediscovered her love of making quilts. Many hours were spent piecing and sewing these treasures for her family. Letty became a resident of Prairie View in Sanborn in October, 2016 where she passed from this life on Sunday, November 26, 2017 at the age of 88.
Preceding her in death were her husband, Harold; an infant son, Doug; her parents, Emil and Lettie Dietz; Betty Moneghan, Ray Dietz, Wayne Kirby, and Dale Kirby.
Cherishing her memory, she is survived by her children: Bruce (Meredith) Daggett of Mineral Point, Wisconsin, Charlotte (Terry) Pinneke of Omaha, Nebraska, Wayne (Pat) Daggett of Round Lake, Minnesota, Connie Daggett of Sibley, Iowa, Ronnie (Lisa) Daggett of Fort Dodge, Iowa, and Bonnie (Dan) Kolbeck of Aurora, Colorado; 16 grandchildren; 33 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; other relatives and friends.
