Obituary: Lattie V. Sartin, 87, Metcalfe Co., KY
She was a member of a highly regarded Metcalfe County Family. She was a native of Clay Co., TN, a homemaker, and attended the Church of Christ. She was the widow of EdmundSartin. She lived, since 1969, with the memory of the devastating loss of her only child, Chucky, when he was just 17 years old and the family was on a vacation in Texas. In later years, recalling moments of his life seemed to give her her greatest joy.
Lattie V. Sartin, age 87, of Edmonton, KY, died Friday, April 16, 2010 at T.J. Samson Community Hospital in Glasgow, KY.
Funeral services will be held 1pmCT, Tuesday, April 20, 2010, at Butler Funeral Home, 201 East ST, Edmonton, KY, with burial in the Summer Shade Cemetery. Visitation will be from 6pm-8pmCT, Monday, April 19, 2010 at the funeral home.
She was the daughter of the late Alexis and Maude Stone Smith. She was born in Celina, Clay Co., TN on April 23, 1922, and died April 16, 2010, in Glasgow, Barren Co., KY, at the age of 87 years, 11 months, and 24 days.
She was a homemaker and attended the Church of Christ.
She is survived by nieces and nephews and her caregivers James and Donneatia Blakley.
Besides her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Edmund Sartin, and son Chuckie Sartin.
Butler Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
Loss of only son was devastating blow
According to her niece, Lattie was never into craft making or clubs and such. In their earlier years together she enjoyed being homemaker and mother and loved being outside working in her flowers or helping her husband with chores around the farm. The Sartins were well known locally.
Following his release from service in WWII, Edmund and Lattie married and settled on the Sartin family farm near Edmonton, KY, where Lattie still lived at the time of her death
When their son Charles was born he became the center of their universe. They called him Chucky and the name stuck. Pretty soon he became Chucky to everyone else as well. As he grew up Chucky made friends easily and throughout his years in school he remained popular with teachers and fellow students alike. He was a member of North Main St. Church of Christ in Edmonton, KY.
In the summer of 1969, before his senior year at Metcalfe County High School began, the future looked bright for 17-year old Chucky.
He and his parents were in Texas at the time, visiting family members when suddenly without any warning tragedy suddenly struck a vicious blow - Chucky Sartin died while in Texas with his parents.
It seems that he and a cousin had gone to the city swimming pool as they often had before. Chucky was known as an excellent swimmer and he seemed fine on that day. But when he dived into the water something evidently went terribly wrong. Witnesses said he came up once but sank again and did not resurface. Quick action by pool attendants failed to save Chucky.
There were no marks to indicate that he had struck his head in the dive, nor had there ever been any reason to think he might have had a heart problem.
His parents were devastated and the entire county joined them in mourning the loss of their son.
Looking back, Lattie's niece, Ann, says her uncle and aunt were never the same two people again after losing their son.
In the years since, whenever she came to visit, she tells of how she often sat with Lattie, "sometimes till 2 a. m.," just listening, while her aunt talked on, recalling moments from her son's life, things he did or said as a little boy. This seemed to make her happy.
