Her Journey

Life’s journey for Corine McRae began on September 9, 1935, in Wadesboro, North Carolina. She was born to the late Theodore and Leslie Sturdivant Little. To this union it was born nine children. Corine’s life journey came to a quiet and peaceful closure on September 10, 2022, in Thomasville, North Carolina. She will be missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father the late Theodore Little, Lessie Sturdivant Little, siblings Theodore Little Jr, John Lester Little, Lorine Greene and Ruth Little Thomas. She leaves to mourn her death four siblings Jeanette Little, Thelma Payne, Dolores Little and Alvin Little.

Corine received her education in the Anson County school system. Corine was married to the late Sylvester McRae; she is survived by nine children to cherish her memories, Charlie Jackie Little, Brenda Little Little, Vickie Poe McKenzie, Sylvester Little (Fanny), Linda Sue McRae, Michael McRae (Vera), Patricia Richardson (Scottie), Ronald McRae (Linda) and Kelvin McRae. She LOVED and was blessed to be LOVED by nine children, 32 grand-children and a host of Great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins. Corine was faithful in her devotion to family, children, grandchildren and even neighbors in the community.

Corine worked and retired from Thomasville Furniture Industry as a Sander. She was known within the family and among friends for her ability to cook; her house was always the place where you could enjoy a delicious meal. Her big family gatherings will be missed, with specialty dishes, sweet potato pie, macaroni and cheese, corn bread and yes pound cake. She willingly shared her food, clothing and whatever was needed, or wanted to help out. Her spirit was generous. Corine was also dedicated to making sure everyone knew right from wrong and was not afraid to speak up. Much of that speech was in words, but, at times, a frying pan may also have found a way into the conversation. And yet, all of those actions spelled out her love for others, for family, and most of all, for the Lord. She will be missed.

She was a faithful lifelong member of First Calvary Baptist Church in Lexington NC; a committed and dedicated member of the gospel choir and the kitchen committee. Her favorite hobbies were gardening and Kraft’s; she created beautiful fashionable jewelry for sale, and gave away most of it as gifts to friends and family.
