HOLMES, Jane Teresa - It is with profound sadness that we announce Teresa's sudden death on November 18, at the age of 68.
She was the beloved daughter of the late Very Rev. Urban Tigner Holmes III.
She is survived by her loving husband, Kenneth Little; and son, William Tigner Holmes Little (Stephanie); her adored mother, Jane Neighbours Holmes, and sister, Janet Cooper (Brown), both of Sewanee, Tennessee; and brothers, Thom (Janae) of Atlanta, Georgia, and Allan (Kris) of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Teresa was a beloved daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, and aunt and will be dearly missed by the Little Family.
Teresa earned her PhD from the University of Virginia and was an Associate Professor of Anthropology at York University, Toronto, where she studied East African colonial history, kinship, and society, her professional lifelong passion.
Teresa was a respected teacher and graduate supervisor. She trained many Doctoral and Masters students who considered her to be an esteemed mentor. Teresa used her lifelong passion for knitting and crossword puzzles to help meet her many recent health challenges. She met those challenges with courage and without complaint.
In keeping with Teresa's wishes there will be a celebration of life service at St. Martin-in-the-Fields on the corner of Glenlake and Indian Grove (Keele subway station) on December 3, 2022, at 2:00 p.m., with a light reception in the parish hall to follow. A private interment will be held in Sewanee, Tennessee, at a later date.
