LITTLE, Mrs. Eva Means
Merced Express, August 1, 1930
Mrs. Eva Means Little, a member of a well-known pioneer family of the Merced river section, passed away at her home near Hopeton on Monday of this week. Funeral services were held in the Welch & Griffin chapel in this city at 2:30 o’clock Wednesday afternoon, the Rev. B. F. Davis, pastor of the First Methodist Church of this city, officiating. Interment was in the Snelling cemetery.
Mrs. Little was born on the Means ranch near Hopeton on March 30, 1872 and was, therefore, in her fiftieth year. She was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William L. Means, Sr., who came to this county from Alabama in pioneer days, and she had spent the greater portion of her life in the Hopeton section, where she was held in the highest esteem by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.
Surviving relatives are her husband, William M. Little; a daughter, Mrs. C. L. Olson of Snelling; three sons, Clarence L. Little of Oakland, Leslie G. Little of Stockton and Howard D. Little of Merced; two sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Reid of Merced and Miss Blanche Means of Hopeton, and a brother, William L. Means, Jr., of Hopeton.
