Elizabeth Jane Moore Little

Elizabeth Jane Moore Little, of Loganville, Georgia, passed away June 9, 2011, 11 days short of her 98th birthday. Born June 20, 1913 in Loganville, she lived with her parents until 1933 when she moved to Atlanta to find employment. It was there she met her future husband, James Little with whom she shared 63 years of marriage. Upon their retirement they returned to the land she grew up on and shared their retirement home there until he died in 2002. She was a honorary life member of the Loganville Women's Club and also active in the Anna Holbrook Club for many years. Elizabeth spent the last 8 years of her life as a resident at Southern Plantation Assisted Living. The staff there provided her kind and loving care for which the family will always be grateful. Elizabeth was most proud of her many crocheted afghans, angels and snowflakes which still hang on Christmas trees of many friends and family each holiday season. She was known for her delicious banana pudding, biscuits, corn bread and fried okra to name only a few of her cooking masterpieces. It was impossible to visit her even after she was no longer cooking without hearing "Well, I wish I had something to give you to eat." Elizabeth was blessed to have had special friends, Betty, Pat, Sylvia and Lois who visited and stayed in touch with her when she was unable to get out in the community. Their friendship and devotion were invaluable as she made her way through her last days. She was predeceased by her husband James "Jimmy" Little, parents Ettie Pearl Moore and James A Moore, sisters Ruby Henderson and Katie Mae Hastings, brothers Gus Moore, Guy "Bill" Moore and Tom Moore. Elizabeth died of age-related illnesses and is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Jim and Susan Little of Summerville, GA; grandson and wife Bryan and Shelia Little of Cleveland NC; grandson and family Matt and Lisa Little and great grandchildren Malia and Michael Little of Summerville, GA; daughter and family Nancy and Gary Mauldin and granddaughters Jennifer and Michelle Mauldin of Cullowhee, NC. Her brother Fred Moore of Gainesville, niece Mildred Dorn of Loganville and other nieces and nephews also survive her. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 Saturday, June 11, 2011 at the Loganville United Methodist Church with Reverend David Gravitt officiating. Instead of flowers the family requests that contributions be made to the memorial fund set up at Loganville United Methodist Church 221 Main Street Loganville, GA 30052. Any contributions will be used for a special project to honor both Elizabeth's and Jimmy's memory.
