Mrs. Little accepted Christ at an early age while attending St. Stephens Missionary Baptist Church. At one point in life she became a member of Bell St Church. Later, along her spiritual journey, she joined Resurrection Missionary Baptist Church. Ms. Little shared her faith, love, and compassion with everyone that she came across. She was also a mentor and served as the Matriarch of her family.
Mrs. Little had a love for God's outside creations. She took pleasure in planting and growing her flowers. Due to the love for her family and friends, she took pride in cooking and being able to share that gift with those she loved. Her industrious life included a lifelong career as a Medical Assistant.
