Liddie Chapman Obituary

Liddie Bell Chapman passed away on July 26, 2023 at the age of 89 in Wortham, Texas.  Graveside services will be held on Saturday, July 29, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at Cade Cemetery.  Ms. Chapman will lay in state on Friday, July 28, 2023 from 12-6 p.m., for family and friends to come by and pay their respects. 

Ms. Chapman was born to Will and Annie Ridge Crook on October 16, 1933.  She married Jody Chapman and together they had one son, DeWayne. 

Liddie battled polio her whole life, but never let it stop her from working.  She was a determined, strong-willed individual.  She retired from Haggar Slacks in Corsicana after 20 plus years.  She then obtained her G.E.D. and worked after that as an activity director for the Wortham Nursing Home.  Jody & Liddie owned and maintained many oil wells around Wortham throughout the years.  They also had a cow/calf operation that they enjoyed working. 

In her younger days, Liddie Bell enjoyed fishing.  She loved to crochet, garden, sew and cook.  If you visited Liddie, she was sure to sit you down to a good, homemade meal.  Jody and Liddie would meet a group of friends each week in Fairfield to play 42.

Liddie Bell was preceded in death by her husband, Jody; son, DeWayne; sisters, Faye Nichols and Mae Cagle.  Survivors include daughter-in-law, Gwen Chapman of Fairfield; grandson, Larry Chapman & wife, Cheree of Wortham; granddaughter, Ginger Self & husband, David of Teague; sister, Mary Jo Patterson of Fairfield; great-grandchildren, MaKenzie Spicer of Lubbock, Cole Chapman and Lexi Chapman o Wortham and Bo Self of Teague; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family. 

After losing her only son, she created a strong bond with her grandson, Cole.  She was able to keep him when he was young and their relationship continued to grow over the years.  Cole was with her and helped take care of her up until the end.
