Mary Sue (James) Littrell

August 23, 1939 ~ July 21, 2020 (age 80)


Mary Sue Littrell, loving wife for 62 years and a loving mother of three, was called to her eternal resting place on July 21, 2020. She was born on August 23, 1939 and passed after a lengthy battle with Scleroderma. She was also a cancer survivor.


She is survived by her husband, George Hayes Littrell, Jr. In addition to her husband, she is survived by sons, George Hayes Littrell, III (wife, Julie) of Middletown, Geoffrey Hayes Littrell,(wife, Wende) of Boonsboro, daughter, Joyce Ann Cantrell (husband, Michael) of Laguna Hills, CA; brother, Lawrence James (wife, Pamela) and cousin, Carolyn Dinst. She was the proud grandmother of 5 grandchildren, Jack and Caroline Littrell;Bradley, Christopher and Nicholas Cantrell.


She attended Atlantic Christian College and East Carolina University earning a BS degree in Home Economics and a minor in Art. She completed her Masters of Education at University of Maryland. She taught Home Economics for FCPS at Frederick High School for many years. She was also very active in her church choir and served as a Sunday School teacher at First Baptist Church of Frederick. As a member of Frederick Chapter #79, O.E.S. she was Past Worthy Matron twice.


She taught us to take time to “smell the roses”. Her kind spirit and unconditional love calmed us when we needed it.  She had magical hugs. Her homemade apple pies and twinkly smile warmed our hearts then as they do now in her memory.
