Betty was a beloved mother, sister, aunt, daughter, friend, and the best granny a person could ask for. She had the spirit of an angel, but sometimes the little devil on her shoulder would take over when she had a prank to play or there was mischief to be had.
She loved to fish, tell stories, bluegrass music, and you couldn’t get her off a dance floor. She loved the warm weather and being in the sunshine. She could raise a garden to feed an army. She took care of everyone and everything. She was a mountain woman (and proud of it) that loved making home remedies to cure anything from the worst of colds to ingrown toenails!!
But the most important thing on this earth to her was her loved ones. She would do anything for her family and friends. All they had to do was ask. If it was within her power to get done, it did. No one loved like Betty did.
Betty is predeceased by her mother and father, Jennings Counts and Zora Kiser; ex-husband Mason Little; children, James Little, Janice King, and Nadine Martin; brothers Dallas Counts, Bunnion Kiser, Finis Counts, Curley Counts, Truman Counts, and Roy Counts; sisters Gracie Lou Lyall, Thelma Smith, and Elizabeth Edwards.
Her living relatives are brothers Buford Counts (Molly), Selah, WA; Mack Counts (Dorothy), Coeburn, VA; Bobby Kiser, Clinchco, VA; sisters Madge Perrigan, Clinchco, VA; Evelyn Perrigan, Claremont, NC; and Ruby Locklear, Pembroke, NC; her children, Peggy Leonard, Summerfield, FL; Cathy Stanley (Roy), Castlewood, VA; Eddie Little, Summerfield, FL; Ellie Castle (Oscar), Jonesville, VA; her grandchildren, James Little, Daniel Little, Chrystal Branscome (Alex), Jennifer Little (Jared), Jessica Suris (Brandon), Jeremy Little, Brandon Castle (McKenzie), and Cody Castle; and her many great-grandchildren.
Betty was loved and forever will be. She was not one to be forgotten and never will be. She was a protector and a nurturer. She was our mother, sister, daughter, aunt, grandmother and always will be. WE LOVE YOU, GRANNY.
