Lola "Granny" Little

October 1, 1934 — January 17, 2024


Lola “Granny” Bell Roberts Little, age 89, peacefully passed away at her home surrounded by her loving family. Born in Mountain City, Tennessee, Lola was the daughter of the late William Earl Roberts and Dora Mabel Horne Roberts.

Granny’s life was a testament to finding joy in the simple things. Her greatest source of happiness was her family, whom she cherished above all else. They were the center of her world, and she dedicated herself to their well-being. Granny had a nurturing spirit, and every action she took was driven by her desire to care for her loved ones.

Whether it was crafting a delicious meal to share around the family table, particularly breakfast or pushing a lawnmower at the age of 86, even when it wasn't in her best interest to do so, Granny’s determination and strong work ethic were evident. Her strong will guided her through life, and she faced challenges with resilience and grace.

Known for her unwavering honesty, Granny was a woman of integrity. Her love for the Lord was profound, and she lived her life guided by a deep faith in God. This faith provided her with strength, comfort, and a sense of purpose throughout her journey.

Granny Little leaves behind a legacy of love, dedication, and faith. She will be fondly remembered by her family and friends as caring, hardworking, and honest. May she rest in eternal peace, reunited with her Lord, and may her memory bring comfort to those who mourn her passing.

Lola is survived by her daughter: Linda (Ralph) Christian; grandchildren: Kim (Jimmy) Vernon, Andrew Vernon, Malachi Christian, Noah Christian, Mercy Christian, Glory Christian, and Devin Walls.
