She was born in Highland Park, Michigan on October 4, 1943 to the late Delmar Chapman and Viola Grix Chapman, preceded in death by her siblings Jerry, Larry, and George Chapman. She was raised and went to school in Waterford, MI and graduated from Waterford High School in 1961. During her teen years, she was a speed skater with the Detroit Speed Skating Association. Her biggest accomplishment was winning the National Indoor Speed Skating Title in West Allis, Wisconsin in February 1961. Lettie married Albert “Al” Cohoon in 1966 and proceeded to have a family of three girls and two boys. Between high school and marriage, she worked as a Key Punch Operator for Pontiac Motor Division. During that time, she and her good friend, Emily Haines went on a vacation to Europe. Lettie and Al lived in Clarkston, MI until 2004, when they retired and moved to Lake City, FL. Lettie enjoyed going to Epiphany Catholic Church and also helping out during the week until MS slowed her down.
