Bratt Lailita


Lailita "Lita" Stubbs Bratt

11/10/1926 - 4/24/2013

She was the north star of our lives, her guidance never failed us. Our beloved mother and teacher, grand and great-grandmother died peacefully. She will be remembered with love and joy by all who knew her. Born in San Antonio, TX, she grew up there and in South America. She received her degree in Art History from Cornell in NY where she met Maurice D. Bratt. They were married in San Antonio and moved to Dallas where all three of her children were born. The family moved to Tucson in 1966. Here, Lita began teaching art at Palo Verde H.S. before moving to Sahuaro H.S. when it opened. She received her masters degree from the UofA and pursued her love of jewelry-making and ceramics. While active at St. Francis in the Foothills, Lita and a friend began the Reading Seed program. "And still you come flying, Mom." Please join us in a celebration of her life on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 3303 N. Bear Canyon Rd. 85749, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Donations may be made in Lita's memory to Reading Seed, Humane Society of So. AZ, and TMC Hospice.
