Cora Elnora Littau

Mrs. Cora Elnora Littau of

Rimbey, Alberta passed away at the

Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre on

Monday, August 29, 2005 at the age of

89 years.

Cora Severtson was born on

August 21, 1916 at Enchant, Alberta.

She was one of ten children, and attended school at Enchant.

Cora later went to Bible College at Camrose. Her strong

Christian faith carried her through her life as a real example

to family and friends. Unfortunately, Cora’s college time

was cut short, as her mother passed away suddenly at the age

of 44 years. She then went home to help her father raise

three younger sisters; by doing the sewing, cooking and

mothering. On April 13, 1948, Cora was united in marriage

to Abraham Littau, and together they raised two children.

Cora and Abe farmed in the Condor, Red Deer, Ponoka and

Rimbey areas.

Cora will be lovingly remembered by her son, Doug

(Elaine) Littau of Rimbey; her daughter, Ione (Brian)

Butterfield of Stettler; as well as seven grandchildren, three

step-grandchildren; and six great grandchildren. She will

also be lovingly remembered by her sisters, Pearl Olafson of

Brooks; Ruby Koller of Calgary; Vivian Kretz of Okotoks;

her sisters-in-law, Ruth Severtson of Innisfail; Madeline

Severtson of Red Deer; Margaret Bechtold of Lethbridge;

Jess Dell of Eckville; Ann Henniger of Calgary; and her

brothers-in-law, Ed (Frances) Littau of Haynes; Hank Littau

of Surrey, B.C.; and Will (Lynn) Littau of Kelowna, B.C.; in

addition to numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. Cora

was predeceased by her husband, Abe in 2001; and numerous

other family members.
