CROUSE - In the wee hours of Jan. 4, 2012, Debra Edmunds Little was carried home by Angels. She suffered from sleep apnea, and her passing was gentle.

She was born Oct. 6, 1962, to the late Maria Villareal Edmunds and Joe Edmunds.

Her life was filled with insurmountable challenges, which she strove to overcome and eventually was victorious. She earned her GED, then proceded to obtain her B.S. degree in nursing.

On Oct. 6, 2007, she and Jim Little with great love joined their lives together. Each had found their soulmate and life was wonderful.

Together they started a cat rescue. Each new kitty became one of the "children." Her love knew no bounds. She passed with a kitty in her arms. "They say the world will end in 2012. Mine did." - Jim

Survivors include her husband, Jim Little, Crouse; sons, Louie Barber, Baltimore, Md., Joshua Reedy, Zepher Hills, Fla.; father, Boyce Edmunds, Kings Mountain; grandmother, Eloise Edmunds, Ayner S.C.; and brother, Joseph R. Edmunds and wife Gale, Kings Mountain.

Private family service will be held at the family home.

Memorials may be made to The Debra Little Memorial Cat Rescue, 761 Hepzibah Church Road, Crouse, NC 28033.
