Family, friends mourn loss of Karen Littleton, Nashville Nights owner

Published 12:00 am Saturday, September 14, 2013



SALISBURY — Karen Littleton, the co-owner of Nashville Nights in downtown Salisbury, has died.
Littleton, 59, passed away unexpectedly at home early Friday morning, according to her friend and business partner, Dick Palmore. Littleton and Palmore, along with Littleton’s husband Jeff, opened Nashville Nights at 127 E. Innes St. in February.
Karen and Jeff Littleton’s grandson, Gavin Littleton, nearly died last summer when he dove into shallow water at High Rock Lake and broke his neck. Teenage friends saved his life by pulling him from the bottom of the lake, administering CPR and finding help.
Karen Littleton was one of Gavin’s most enthusiastic cheerleaders throughout his recovery and rehabilitation.
Palmore said family and friends are in shock.
“She’s been like my sister for 40 years,” he said.
