Lita also cared deeply for four foster boys (Ledford) from Childhaven Children's Home and cherished her ten grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents George and Vivian Todd, her son Daniel Keith McDonald, her brother Clark Davis McDonald, her sister Iris McDonald Curran, and her grandson Joseph Mark McDonald Pecot.A graveside service will be held at Mobile Memorial Cemetery.
