Doris A. (Wigg) Little, 84, of Zieglerville, passed away peacefully Friday, April 10, 2020 at home in Harleysville with her loving husband by her side following a long battle with cancer. She was the loving wife of Robert L. Little, sharing 64 years of marriage together.

Born in Pottstown on October 26, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Frederick and Angeline (D’errico) Wigg.

Doris was a graduate of East Greenville High School and held various jobs throughout her life. In her earlier years she was employed at Lansdale Tube in Lansdale, Sparks in Schwenksville and NW Controls in Salford.
She drove a school bus for Perkiomen Valley School District, and most recently worked as a bookkeeper for Robert E. Little Inc. She spent her free time volunteering for Meals on Wheels in Schwenksville. While living in Cape Coral, FL., she enjoyed transporting people to doctor appointments.

Doris was a faithful member of Peace in Zion in Zieglerville and in her spare time enjoyed quilting and spending time at the shore in Cape May Court House.

Surviving along with her husband are three sons, Timothy R. Little and wife, Laurie of Zieglerville, Michael F. Little and wife, Diane of Perkiomenville and David L. Little and wife Jo of Perkiomenville; four grandchildren, Jennifer Miracola and husband, Charlie, Laura Mattiuz and husband, Chris, Justin Little and wife, Becky and Emily Little; and five great-grandchildren, Riley, Alex, Autumn, Lucas and Amelia.

I first met Doris and her husband Bob through Doris’s brother Fred. Fred was a colleague of mine throughout his entire career at Bensalem High School in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Littles and I met a few times before Fred’s passing and became close after his death. The Little Family sponsored a generous scholarship for Bensalem for more than a decade. It gave us a chance to honor Fred’s memory and to help deserving seniors. Through this connection, I started visiting Doris and Bob every summer, corresponding at Christmas and phoning a couple of times a year. Doris and Bob always welcomed me into their home (and later their apartment) like a member of their family. We’d share photographs, catch up on family happenings, talk about Florida, Stone Harbor, fishing and antique cars. These visits became part of my most cherished summer memories for more than twenty years.
Doris was so warm and caring. She was so easy to talk with. She was kind and generous, interested in my children and grandchildren, and very thoughtful. When Fred was alive, he would always bring those wonderful homemade Easter eggs from Peace In Zion UCC. He would share a couple of boxes with our faculty and a couple of boxes with my family. When he passed, Doris saw to it that the tradition continued. Year after year, we’d find a box of those delicious candies on our front step, lovingly mailed from Doris and her family. We’d share those treats and our memories of “Uncle” Fred. It was as much a part of our Easter traditions as bonnets and baskets, and we will always be grateful.
Easter will never taste the same again. Rest in peace, dear friend.
