October 28, 1941 - January 8, 2021
With saddened hearts we announce the passing of Helen Marie Little, 79, of St Augustine. Helen was born in Moultrie, Georgia to the late Freddie and Marie Walker. Helen was raised by the “Wilson girls” who were like second mothers to her, the late Geneva Rowe Wilson and Aunt Jessie. She passed away at the Bailey Family Center for Caring from natural causes on January 8, 2021. When John was twelve years old his mother died, and neighbors laid her body in a tomb among her kindred in the Hebron burying ground, and near to Zacharias’ tomb. And John was deeply grieved; he wept. Matheno said: “It is not well to weep because of death. Death is no enemy of man; it is a friend who, when the work of life is done, just cuts the cord that binds the human boat to earth, that it may sail on smoother seas. No language can describe a mother’s worth, and yours was tried and true. But she was not called hence until her tasks were done. The calls of death are always for the best, for we are solving problems there as well as here; and one is sure to find himself where he can solve his problems best. It is but selfishness that makes one wish to call again to earth departed souls. Then let your mother rest in peace. Just let her noble life be strength and inspiration unto you. A crisis in your life has come, and you must have a clear conception of the work that you are called to do….This readiness is purity of heart; none but the pure in heart can recognize the king. Helen was always happy; her smile would light up any room and bring smiles to others faces. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She could also be very straight forward and would tell you how things should be. Helen moved to New York when she was 18 and met the love of her life where a few years later they married. Helen and Charles were married for 56 years. She was a member of AME Church in New York with Rev. Roy Flake and also attended church at Moultrie Baptist Church. Helen is survived by her sons, Rashaking and Divine Little; 11 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, Charles “Lingburg” Little and sister Aline. St Johns Family Funeral Home is in charge of her arrangements.
