Ruth Lloyd Little, 92, of Statesville, N.C., passed away quietly at her home on November 9, 2020. Mrs. Little was born in Iredell County on December 12, 1927, and was the daughter of the late Fred and Maude Adams Lloyd.
She attended Celeste Henkel School and graduated through Mitchell Community College. She was married to Charlie R. Little, who preceded her in death in February 1980, along with her canine companion Harley.
She is survived by four daughters and one son, Elaine Wustrow, Gayle Cline (Tim), Janice Little, Beverly Murdock, and Charlie R. Little Jr. (Karen). She is also survived by a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren, all of whom loved her very, very much.
She enjoyed more than anything riding on her lawnmower, cutting her grass and working outside in the yard. She was an amazing and incredible woman and all those who knew and loved her are blessed to have had her in their lives. She will live on in the hearts of those lucky enough to have been able to call her Mama, Grandmother and Friend.
Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 15, 2020, in the Troutman Funeral Home Chapel. The family will speak with friends following the service.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in her name to either The Humane Society or Hospice of Iredell County.
Troutman Funeral Home is serving the family.
