LEXINGTON – Funeral services for Jeanne Redding O’Kelly Little, 82, will be held at 12:00 noon on Thursday, March 14, 2019 at White Rock Baptist Church with interment to follow in Greenlawn Memorial Park.

Mrs. Little was born April 2, 1936 in Columbia, SC, and passed away on Monday, March 11, 2019. She was the daughter of the late Mary Seay and William Fred Redding. She was a member of White Rock Baptist Church and the Joymakers Sunday school class. Mrs. Little’s work life included many years as a legal secretary for prominent law firms in Columbia and Charleston, followed by several years at the Aiken County Clerk of Court. Perhaps her greatest gifts were her love of color and her eye for design, which inspired impressive accomplishments in her many personal interior design efforts.

O’Kelly (Laurie) of Columbia; daughter, Tracy Klatt (Eric) of Beaufort; granddaughter, Kelly D.

Kathy, David, Lynne and Tracy....I am SO proud of all of you for the strength and love you showed to your Mother. She certainly owned a piece of my heart! My mind keeps returning to the days before Jeanne became ill, when Cindy and John and I would meet Jeanne and Kathy at Olive Garden for lunch at least once a month. We had such fun talking about the "Forest Acres" days! Mimi and Poppy and Aunt Minnie and Little Poppy and Aunt Eva and Aunt Sara came "alive" again as we all shared our memories of those who we all loved and treasured so much. Jeanne is with them all again now . What a rejoicing is going on in Heaven today! No wonder it is such a beautiful afternoon with gorgeous blue skies and lots of warm sunshine! I love the stories Jeanne and Daddy both shared about Daddy and Uncle Bob and their buddies allowing Jeanne to tag along on camping trips at Lake Murray. Apparently she was sort of a mascot! He also referred to her (in his lovely Southern Drawl) as: "Mooovie Stah beautiful! ….And she was! I just want the four of you to know that you are foremost in my prayers and thoughts...I love you SO very much! Thank you Kathy for calling me on Friday night! I am forever grateful for being able to say "goodnight" to Jeanne on Sunday. Sending all of my love...Carol (and John!)
