In memory of
Edward Chatterton
LT USN (Ret) Edward Maurice Chatterton passed away in his home in Pascagoula, MS, October 23, 2020. Edward was three days shy of his 91st birthday at his passing. Edward was born on October 26,1929, in Bushnell, IL, as the second of three children to Mr. and Mrs. Walter Maurice Chatterton, who preceded him in death along with his brother, William, and great-grandson Ezra. Edward graduated from Bushnell HS in 1947 and joined the US Navy that same year. Edward moved up through the ranks as an enlisted man, warrant officer, OCS, and retired with the rank of Lieutenant. He served tours of duty during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. He served for 24 years, nine months, and one day. Edward's hobbies included outdoor sports, bowling, raising cats, and of course, sharpening knives (many were blessed by this skill!). He was a member of Pascagoula FUMC, the Gideons, Methodist Men, and Cursillo of the Methodist Church. Edward is survived by his wife of 70 years, Mary Ann, of Pascagoula, whom he met on a Greyhound bus in Macon, GA, in 1949; his sister, Betty Schrodt, of Galesburg, IL, his children Edward Jr and spouse Jenny, Keith and spouse Christine, Paul, Glenn and spouse Rhonda, Penny, and Julie Frost and spouse the Rev.
