Sarabelle DeWitt

 

Sarabelle DeWitt, age 74, of Lamar, Missouri passed away October 27, 2022, at Freeman Hospital in Joplin, Missouri.
 
Sarabelle was born December 4, 1947 in Kansas City, Missouri to Homer Woodrow Houston and Margie Sara May (Rutherford) Houston. Sarabelle graduated from Memphis, Texas High School in the class of 1965. On January 19, 1979, Sarabelle married Steven Charles DeWitt in  Lamar, MO.

Sarabelle worked as a cost analyst for O'Sullivan Industries for 31 years and also worked as a telephone operator for Southwestern Bell. Sarabelle also worked for Missouri Child Support Enforcement in 2010. Sarabelle was very enthusiastic about the Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Cardinals. Sarabelle and Steve loved to go camping and spent most of their summers outdoors. They were incredibly thankful to get one last trip in before her passing. She loved to play the game "Joker" and was very competitive at family functions when they would play. If you were to ask anyone, Sarabelle was the best cook around. She loved spending time with her grandkids and great-grandkids, as well as attending their sporting events, no matter how far the drive. She was so proud of each and everyone of them. 

Survivors include her husband, Steven; one son, Todd DeWitt of Carthage, Missouri; two daughters, Trisha SueAnn Stettler and Ashley Elizabeth DeWitt, both of Lamar, MO; seven grandchildren, Trenton DeWitt, Colton DeWitt, Kinley DeWitt, Megan(Tyler) Fidlin, Olivia (Michael) Branham, Julia Stettler and Ashlyn Stettler; four great-grandchildren, Wyatt Collins, McKenzie Fidlin, Gavyn Ramey and Abby Larson; two sisters, Kathryn (Larry) Onstott of Lamar, MO., and Becky (Mike) Pickering of Carthage, MO.

Sarabelle was preceded in death by her parents and one son, Steven Nicholas DeWitt.
