LaTrelle loved playing with her grandsons when they were young. Trampoline and paint ball were just a number of things they did together. Even when they were no longer young she was still able to be part of their lives. She enjoyed going to rock concerts.

Throughout the years she would attend many of the events at the Texas Motorplex.

She was preceded in death by her parents Jack and Lucy Hussey.
