Linda M. Fields Little departed this life on Dec. 26, 2018. She was the eighth child born to the late Elder Leslie Fields Sr. and Mary Moses Fields Peters. She received her education in Washington Parish, and also attended Sullivan Vo-Tech where she received her degree in nursing. She also attended Hinds Community College in Raymond, Miss., for registered nursing.

Linda was a faithful member of Holy Temple C.O.G.I.C., under the leadership of her brother Supt. Leslie Fields Jr. She served faithfully in many offices. Linda was a woman with wisdom. She was a phenomenal cook. She sung in the choir, was on the usher board, worked with the youth and sunshine band, and was a Sunday school teacher. She was an interior decorator and a floral designer.

Linda was a special, remarkable woman. She touched so many people’s lives. She would help anyone who needed her. She delivered charity community boxes to whoever needed her to. She also would give anyone a ride wherever they needed to go.

Linda was wed to Louis Magee. Two children were born to that union. Later, she married Dana Little and to this union two children were born.

Little of Varnado; four granddaughters, one special who she raised Dariana Greely, Princess Jenkins, Kelonda Magee, Lanise Magee and two grandsons, Jerry Jenkins and Rozzie Scott; and one great-grandson.
