Jane (Showalter) Little, 65, died suddenly at her Topeka home on February 13. Jane was kind, generous, thoughtful, loving, sassy and sweet, and will be greatly missed.
She was born in Fairfax, Missouri, to William and Ruth Showalter, and moved to Kansas in 1960. She graduated from Jefferson County North High School in 1969 and Stewart's Beauty Academy of Topeka in 1970. She then started her successful 46 year career as a hairdresser in Topeka and was proud to start her own shop, Not So Plain Jane's, in 2004.
Jane married Ray Little of Topeka in December of 1982. He survives, as well as son, Daniel, of Topeka and step-son, Dustin and family of Arizona. Her father preceded her in death in 1991, but she is survived by her mother; brother, Gary and family of Washington state; sister, Marilou and daughter of Kansas City; and sister, Lisa and family of California.
A memorial visitation will be held from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Monday, February 20, at Dove Cremation & Funeral Service, 4020 SW 6th Avenue. Donations are suggested to the American Heart Association.
