Obituary (from a Knoxville, TN, newspaper)

"Miss Ara Worthington Little, one of Knox County's first registered nurses, died yesterday at the home of a niece, Mrs. Ralph "Lucy" Dunsmore, on Washington Pike, Corryton, Tenn., at 94.

Miss Little, who had ridden side-saddle through dark, cold and rain time and again to her private-duty cases, waited on her last one when she was 75. But Mrs. Lucy Dunsmore says she was still able to wait on herself up to a couple of weeks ago.

The Daughter of Frank and Margaret Chamberlain Little, early Corryton settlers, Miss Little still owned her birthplace home on Circle Rd., and the side-saddle hangs in the attic there. Four years ago, (in 1960) Corryton Community Club honored her with a "This is Your Life" Program.

Miss Little was already 30 when she graduated from the Erlanger Hospital Nursing school in Chattanooga in 1907. She had many of the late Dr. Albert Kern's private-duty cases here and also nursed for a long time in Chattanooga and Florida. She did not belong to a church but attended the Baptist Church in whatever community she was working. She will be buried in the family cemetery near her home in the cow pasture."
