Shirley Little

November 28, 1943 — March 14, 2024

Indianapolis

Shirley Little, 80, of Indianapolis, passed away March 14th, 2024. She was born in Indianapolis November 28th, 1943, to parents William and Betty Durnil. 

Shirley grew up in Indianapolis and graduated from Arsenal Tech High School. 

On September 25th, 1961, she married the love of her life, Billie Little. They shared many wonderful years together. Billie passed away in 2002. 

Shirley worked at K-Mart and later worked at Nationwise Auto parts until she retired. 

Shirley was a bright, loving lady who never knew a stranger. She was devoted to her family and loved nothing more than spending time with them, never missing a child’s or grandchild’s school program or sporting event. In her younger years, Shirley enjoyed taking road trips with Billie, and she loved to drive through old neighborhoods and reminisce. Music was always passion for Shirley, especially Elvis. She also enjoyed spending time outdoors, and camping.
