Sister Eleanor Little, RSM, 76, (formerly Sister Mary Paul Francis) died peacefully Friday, January 17, 2020. She was a Sister of Mercy for 58 years.
She was the daughter of the late Raymond and Mary (Sullivan) Little. She leaves behind a brother, Raymond Paul Little.
Among her many ministries she served as nurse, teacher, and archivist. Eleanor spent three years living in Dublin, Ireland during which time she traveled to nearby parts of Ireland.
Sister lived by her motto “One in Love through Christ”. This was shown by her gentle and compassionate manner. Her Irish humor came out in humble and quiet ways and was experienced by those who knew and loved her. Eleanor valued her friendships with her former classmates. She will be missed especially by her companion of many years, Sister Winifred Sandwell.
