My mother, Carolyn Jean Littlejohn, was born on 2/24/48 in Amarillo, TX.  She was the youngest of 6 children.  Her nickname was Pee Wee.  She was a Choctaw Indian. She had two children, myself, and my younger brother, John.  She also had 4 grandchildren - 3 granddaughters, and a grandson she has never met.

She was a loving mother and devoted grandmother.  She was the first to hold my oldest daughter when she was born.  Their bond grew stronger everyday.  Brittany told all of her secrets to her "Granny."  She encouraged her children and grandchildren to be the best they could be.

Mom was also a caring daughter.  At the time of her death she was taking care of her elderly father.  She wanted him to spend his last days with family instead of with strangers in a nursing home. 

My mother was very outgoing and she had a great sense of humor.  Everyone who knew her loved her.  During the holidays if someone she knew was going to be alone, she invited them to have dinner with us.  Mom always saw the good in people no matter who they were. 

Her hobbies were baseball, basketball, collecting beanie babies, walking her dog, and spending time with her grandchildren.  Her favorite sports teams were the Phoenix Suns and the Diamondbacks.  Mom loved to collect autographs and go to the games.  Her favorite color was purple-she even had a purple Christmas tree.

Mom loved animals.  She had 1 dog, 2 cats, 4 birds, and a tank full of fish.  She never went anywhere without her dog. 

My Mom was shot and killed on Dec. 19, 1999, by her boyfriend of 10 years.  She had gone to see him to break up with him when he killed her.  He sat with her body all afternoon, all the while telling my brother when he called that he didn't know where she was.  We finally found out what happened when I saw them carry her dead body out of the house on the 10 o'clock news.  We are still awaiting trial.  He is in the Intensive Care Unit so we may never go to trial.

My mother is loved and missed by all her knew her.  We hold her memory close in our hearts.

Thank you.
