Caroline Little, passed away on Friday, June 19, 2015, at her home in Colorado following a brief illness. She was 63. She was born Aug. 20, 1951, in Valdosta, Ga., to Dr. Alexander Graham and Roline (Adair) Little. Her grandfather, Dr. A. G. Little, Sr., and Dr. Archibald Griffin established Valdosta’s first hospital in 1915 which was called the Little-Griffin Hospital. She grew up in Valdosta and attended Pine Grove Elementary School and Valdosta Junior High, where she was an outstanding basketball player. She graduated from Chatham Hall in Virginia, where she was elected President of the student athletic council. Following high school, she went on to study at Mt. Vernon Junior College in Washington, D.C., and later obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in film making from the University of Denver. Ms. Little was a resident of Colorado for 40 years, living in the innovative solar home she and her then husband Jeff Curry built in the Westcliffe area of the Wet Mountain range. She and long-time business partner Jeff Curry were involved in a variety of enterprises, notably the Little Curry Crew Construction Co., which specialized in historical preservation projects throughout Colorado. She became proficient in a trade where few women are represented. Ms. Little was an avid windsurfer and traveler. She was devoted to her Great Danes and horses and creatures of all kinds. She is survived by two sisters and a brother, Adair Little (and partner Charles Payne) of Tallahassee, Fla.; Ida Little (and husband Michael Walsh) of Cape Cod, Mass., and Hawthorne, Fla.; and Dr. Alex (and wife, Louise) Little of Tucson, Ariz. Also surviving are two nieces: Jody (Mrs. Micah) Barba of Tucson, Ariz.; and Ashley Little of Seattle, Wash.; and cousins in Atlanta, NYC and North Carolina. Private family rites will be held in Colorado. Those wishing may make memorial contributions to the Wet Mountain Valley Community Foundation at P.O. Box 718 in Westcliffe, CO 81252.
