Deborah Marie Hudnell-Littrell

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Deborah Marie Hudnell-Littrell on June 25, 2024. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Debi was born in Ottumwa, Iowa to Erma and Marvin Bennett on September 5th, 1953. She graduated from North Callaway High School and worked several different roles throughout her life. She ended her career with 20 years of service at the Fulton State Hospital. She shared a partnership with her spouse Mark Littrell over 37 years together.

Debi was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Dale. She is survived by her spouse, Mark; her sisters: Karen, Terry, and Donna; her daughter Wende; her son David; and grandchildren: Tyler, Rachael, Bradlee, Alex, and Sophia. She will be deeply missed by family and friends alike.

I will never forget the warm, nurturing compassion she shared with me. One of my cherished memories is her reaction to seeing the Grand Canyon.
