Terri Sue Little-(Richardson)-1956-2007 of Midlothian, VA; formerly of
Phoenix, AZ and Wellsboro, PA. It is with the greatest sadness that the Little Family announces the passing of their beloved Terri following an 18 month battle with breast cancer. Terri's brave fight to defeat cancer ended November 21, 2007. Terri endured unconscionable pain and suffering through multiple surgeries and countless chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Terri and Tom often took long trips for scans, test, x-rays, biopsies procedures and treatments in their quest for a cure. There no longer will be any pain, suffering, indignity, or fear for our beloved Terri. We will miss Terri's endless sense of adventure, her kindness, her honesty, her consideration of others, and her infectious laughter. She was a loving and considerate daughter, an exceptional sister, a special friend and co-worker, and a devoted companion and wife. Her passing leaves a huge hole in the hearts of those that knew and loved her. In addition to her adoring husband of twenty-one years Thomas, Terri leaves behind her mother Doris of Pennsylvania, father Jack of California, most loving sister Jo and brother-in-law Lou of Arizona, sister Kallie and brother-in-law Ed of Pennsylvania, son Brian of Arizona, granddaughters Ashley and Andrea of Arizona, many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, good friend Lothar of Arizona, dearest friends Lynn, Grace and Joan of Arizona, Donna of Wyoming, Marcy of California, Dobby and Gloria of Virginia, Betty of South Carolina and countless good friends and co-workers from across the country. No services are planned, but a memorial service celebrating Terri's life will be held in the future at The Hawthorne, Cancer Resource Center, located at 1459 Johnston-Willis Drive, Richmond, VA 23235. In lieu of flowers the Little Family requests that charitable donations be made to The Hawthorne and Bon Secours Hospice of Richmond, Virginia.
