On August 3, 2023, Lottie McDaniel McCauley, 80, of Charlottesville, earned her eternal rest. She died surrounded by family and showered with love.
Lottie was born on October 23, 1942 in Stanardsville, Virginia to the late James and Hattie McDaniel. She retired from the University of Virginia’s History Department where she served as Office Manager and Assistant to the Dean for many years. Lottie took exceptional pride in her work, and she formed many lasting friendships with her colleagues.
Lottie was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 58 years, Donald W. McCauley, Sr., her aforementioned parents, nine of her siblings, and one great granddaughter, Lila Erin Crow.
She is survived by her brothers, David and Dilmer McDaniel; her children, Wayne McCauley (Vanessa), Darren McCauley (Amy), and Kimberly Crow; her grandchildren, Cody McCauley (Jackie), SSG. Thomas Crow (Erin), Laurelyn McCauley (Wyatt Tapscott), and Matthew Crow (Casey); one great grandson, Jack Thomas Crow and one great granddaughter, Mallory Erin Crow. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews whom she dearly loved.
There was nothing Lottie enjoyed or adored more than her family. Of all her many accomplishments, earning the title of “Mammaw” was her most cherished. Her heart and her home were ever-open to her grandchildren, and she took much pleasure in seeing them flourish.
Lottie was a woman of unwavering devotion to her faith in Christ Jesus. At the time of her death, she was a member of Albemarle Baptist Church.
The family would like to extend profound gratitude to doctors Karen Starr and William Hammond. Their many years of loving care sustained Lottie and helped her live more fully. Special thanks also to Tyler Glover, Tina Bowman, and Meghann Gregory for their care and attention.
The family will receive friends Sunday, August 6th from 4-6 pm at Teague Funereal Service.
Funeral services will be held at Albemarle Baptist Church at 9:30 am on Monday, August 7th with internment to follow at Holly Memorial Gardens.
