Laquita Tschetter

September 23, 1930 — May 30, 2021

Mrs. LaQuita Tschetter, 90, of Pompano Beach, Florida passed away on May 30, 2021, at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She was born in Valdosta, GA on September 23, 1930, to the late Andrew Hood and Tessie Hotchkiss Hood.

LaQuita attended Valdosta High School and Georgia State College for Women in Milledgeville. She returned to Valdosta and went to work at C&S bank, where she worked for many years. She met and married Timothy Tschetter while he attended pilot training at Moody Field. Tim's Air Force career took LaQuita and their family to bases in California, Texas, South Carolina, Panama, the Philippines and Hawaii, and finally, Florida. Her love of travel, curiosity about other cultures and her shining personality, made her a perfect match as an officer’s wife. LaQuita was a member of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft Lauderdale, FL.
