Ondalee Prevett Littrell was born to Joseph E. "Joe" and Mae Morris Prevett on Nov. 27, 1924, in Warm Springs, Arkansas. She was one of four children and the oldest girl born to the couple. She started school in Warm Springs, went to high school in Pocahontas, and completed at the high school in Maynard, graduating in 1944 along with her sister Madge. She obtained a teaching certificate and taught school in Warm Springs.

On September 5, 1945, she and James Harold Littrell were united in marriage by local Church of Christ minister Tommy Kidd in Warm Springs. They moved to St. Louis, Missouri, for Harold to receive training as a General Motors auto mechanic. Harold later became a preacher for the Churches of Christ, beginning in 1947 in Paris, Texas. Ondalee was a stay-at-home mother and homemaker. Over the years the Littrells lived in a number of small towns in Arkansas, Texas, Missouri, Mississippi, and Georgia. In the latter years of their lives they lived at Ravenden Springs, Paragould, and Ravenden, Arkansas. They had three daughters: Patsy Lee, Mae Retta, and Jana Ruth. After Harold died on August 21, 2001, Ondalee lived at Ravenden, Imboden, Bono, Heber Springs, and Pocahontas, Arkansas.

Ondalee died of sepsis after a brief infection at age 86, on Friday, July 22, 2011, at the NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
