Roz was born August 15, 1926 in Salem, MA, a daughter of the late Howard and Doris (Enslin) Cole. She was raised in Salem and Beverly Massachusetts and graduated from Beverly High School with the Class of 1943. Shortly after graduation from college, Roz married her high school sweetheart, the late George R. Little, and they settled in Marblehead to raise their family. Roz earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition from Simmons College of Boston and after working for a few years, focused her life on taking care of her family.

Eventually her son Richard and daughter Cindy joined the business as well. She continued to be active in the business until 2001. Roz’s early years were spent enjoying time and activities on the coast in the North Shore area. Sailing was a favorite activity in her earlier years. In the later years, Roz loved spending time in Wolfeboro with her family. She loved watching the grandchildren and great grandchildren learn to swim and learn to ski. Roz also was an accomplished knitter and her family will cherish the warmth of her love in the sweaters she created for us. Her most cherished times were at family holiday gatherings for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, the annual 4th of July celebration in Marblehead with the extended family and simple family moments. She felt she was very fortunate to have had a close relationship with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and to share many precious moments together with them.
