Sadie Little

Oct 27th, 1927 - Jul 20th, 2020

Graveside Ceremony: 11 a.m. Thursday, July 23, 2020, at Elmwood Cemetery in Flora

Those attending are asked to go directly to the cemetery. 


   Sadie Marie Little, age 92, of Flora, Illinois, passed away early Monday morning, July 20, 2020, at Flora Rehabilitation & Health Care Center.

   She was born October 27, 1927, in Sangamon County, the daughter of Clinton H. and Urcle (Herdes) Nash.  She was united in marriage to Leonard Leak on June 27, 1950, in Flora.  He preceded her in death September 15, 1954.  She later married John H. Little on February 7, 2003, and together they shared 11 wedding anniversaries until his death January 30, 2015.

   Sadie was a caretaker for countless others over the years, and had operated a nursing home at one time.  She is remembered for her lively and caring personality, and how she could usually find a positive aspect to offset a negative circumstance.

   She is survived by a son-in-law: Wayne Baker; a granddaughter: Angela (Ben) Baker-Saunders; and great-granddaughters: Annika Baker, Penelope and Flaunianna Samora, and Hazel Saunders; several nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews; and many friends at Flora Health Care Center.

   She was preceded in death by her parents; both husbands; a daughter: Marsha (Leak) Baker; 2 brothers: Clinton Nash Jr. and Everett E. Nash; and 3 sisters: Dorothy Baugh, Hazel Krutsinger, and Alberta Clark.

   A graveside ceremony will be held 11 a.m. Thursday, July 23, 2020, at Elmwood Cemetery in Flora, with Brother Jeff Hough officiating.  Those attending are asked to go directly to the cemetery.  Arrangements are in the care of Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora.  Memorial donations are suggested to the Flora Rehabilitation & Health Care Center Activity Fund and will be accepted through the funeral home.  To share a memory or condolence, visit:
