Dora Angela Little, 95, died peacefully on April 7, 2018 with her daughter at her side. Dora was born in Los Angeles, the youngest of eight children. In 1950, she married the love of her life, William (Jack) Little. They met while working for the Los Angeles Police Department, a job they both enjoyed tremendously. In 1963, they moved to northern California, lived in Hollister for 7 years and finally settled in Salinas in 1972.

Dora was most passionate about family and friends. When they first moved to northern California, the Littles traveled to Los Angeles for most holidays and every summer to be with family. For the past 16 years, extended family would meet in Las Vegas where Dora hosted wonderful family dinners. Dora considered herself a big winner after every trip because of the memories she made and cherished.

Dora is preceded in death by her husband William (Jack) Little and son Jack Little.
She is survived by her daughter, son-in-law and adopted daughter she loved (Mary Ann Little, Nick Turner, Marilyn Ferraro), grandchildren she cherished (Jack Turner, Carly Turner, Delaney Richards, Ryan Richards, Nicholas Turner) and many nieces and nephews she treasured.
