July 30, 1928 ~ April 2, 2021

Born in: Culberson, Georgia
Resided in: Macon, Georgia

Virginia Ann Little Titshaw, age 92, of Lawrenceville and Macon, Georgia, passed away in Macon, on Good Friday, April 2, 2021, after a relatively short bout with cancer.

Virginia was born on July 30, 1928 in Union County, Georgia. The youngest of the six children of the late Gordon and Callie Walker Little, she grew up on their farm in a large clapboard home her parents built with their own hands.
Soon after graduating from Young Harris College in 1948, Virginia married Carl Shaw Titshaw, and they eventually settled in Lawrenceville, where she would spend most of the last sixty years of her life. She was a teacher, who worked with special ed children, a meticulous bookkeeper, an excellent cook, a loving sister and aunt, and a profoundly dedicated single mom.

Virginia was an elegant, but humble and prayerful woman with an overriding sense of Christian purpose. She was a devoted and active member of Hebron Baptist Church and its Joy Sunday school class. During the last three years of her life, Virginia spent most of her time in Macon, where she attended the First Baptist Church of Christ and enjoyed its Seekers class.

She had a positive outlook on life and was a generous and loving soul. She loved to laugh, but never at the expense of others, and had a ready and beautiful smile, which made her new friends even when she relocated to a new city at the age of eighty-nine.

Virginia was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Carl Titshaw, her sisters Lena Thompson, Ruby Hunter, and Flossie Thompson, and her brothers Floyd Little and Holland Little, as well as her nephew Rex Thompson, her nieces Elsie Hunter Deaver and Sheila Little Gray, and her stepsons, Charles and Louie Titshaw.

She is survived by her son, Scott Titshaw, his partner Steve Murray, and her nephews and nieces, Lavon Kuykendall, Steve Thompson, Paul Thompson, Nema Mobley, Sharon Thompson Poteete, Thomas Little, Glenda Little Herndon, Rodney Little, Michael Little, and Andrea Plunkett, as well as many beloved friends, in-laws, and other family.

A graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at Gwinnett Memorial Park in Lawrenceville with Rev. Scott Dickison, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Christ in Macon, presiding.

In lieu of flowers, Virginia requested that donations be made to cancer or heart disease research.

  1. Precious Virginia! As a member of the Joy Class, I would like to express the inspiration she was to me. She was a strong leader of our class and when it was needed she would train our group leaders. She made sure everyone was contacted at least once a week to be encouraged and prayed for if needed. She showed up at the hospital when our members had surgery and her presence was beautiful peace. I loved her and miss her but know she is with her Lord in Heaven and does not have cancer any more.

  2. Virginia was definitely a classy lady and we enjoyed so much her Zooming with our Joy Class this past year. Thank you Scott for making that possible for all of us to enjoy her. We will hold you and your family in our prayers and look forward to being with her again someday.

  3. What always impressed me about her was her sense of independence. She knew how to take care of her self and she knew what she liked. She could be very loving with her great son Scott and she could be big hearted in knowing that the world has its mysteries and its complexities. It was a total inspiration to me to see how both Steve and Scott coexisted with her in Macon. It’s very rare in my experience to be able to do that with a parent. She will be much missed.

  4. Elegant is an understatement. Sweet, but never saccharine. Beautiful within and without. Unfailingly kind. There is a reunion in Heaven which I look forward to joining one day and I can’t wait to see Aunt Virginia again. Eternal and unimaginable peace and joy are yours Aunt Virginia.

  5. CandleImageSweet Virginia. She married my grandfather when I was small. We have always loved and admired her. Her strength and grace were immeasurable. Godly woman.

  6. CandleImageI had the pleasure of meeting her once in Macon. I will always cherish that visit. She treated me like she knew me for years. A class act.

  7. CandleImageVirginia was a precious soul. She was always smiling. I will miss her and I have missed her since she moved to Macon. Scott, you have my deepest sympathy.
