Tiny Pauline Little Obituary

Tiny Pauline (McKinley) Little was born in Stroud, Oklahoma, to Joney and Rosetta McKinley on October 8, 1926, and went to live eternally with Jesus on February 9, 2024, at the age of 97 years and 4 months. Pauline was the last born in her family of five brothers – Frank, George, Clarence, Earnest, and Arthur, along with four sisters – Edna, Becky, Violet, and Hazel, all of whom have preceded her in death.

Pauline married Marion Thomas Little on March 4, 1947, and they were blessed with six children. Pauline was preceded in death by her husband Thomas, son Darrell, and daughters Barbra Deliz, Debra Hale, and Regina Stafford, along with two grandchildren, Billy and Gala.

She is survived by her daughter, Deloris Genie Butler, son Rick; daughter-in-law Joann Little, son-in-law Tyce Hale; 8 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, and 8 great-great-grandchildren.

Pauline worked in the food service industry for most of her life, serving others. She was a longtime member of Friendship Chapel Assembly of God Church, where she taught Sunday School and served as church secretary.

Pauline often asked and pondered the question, “Just what will we do in Heaven for all eternity?” She loved singing with her sisters Violet and Hazel when they were young, and now, Pauline is in a Heavenly Choir, lifting up praises to her Lord, for all eternity.

Pauline loved her family – spending time playing dominoes, Yahtzee, Rummy, and working word search puzzles, which kept her sharp as a tack until the very end. She loved vacationing in Branson and being with her family. Pauline was blessed to have numerous nieces and nephews, along with many other family members and friends that she leaves behind but hopes to see them in eternity.
