Carletta Bravo left us peacefully on February 8, 2019 at the Big Horn County Memorial Hospital. She was born September 11, 1960 to Becker Andy and Dolly (Hunts the Arrow) Little Light in Crow Agency. She received her education in Crow Agency and earned her GED in 1981. As a child and young woman, she was active in the Pentecostal Church. She married Dennis Bravo in 1982 and the couple made their home in Lodge Grass. The couple had five children Leon, Brandon, Britana, Cordell and Shilo. Carletta was a homemaker and stay at home mom. She assisted with the care of her mother and helped raise her niece Alta Little Light and Alta’s daughters Chantel and Starla Little Light and grandson Tivon Bravo. She always maintained a clean and welcoming home and she enjoyed visitors. Her pride and joy were her children and grandchildren and she cherished her time with them. The loss of her daughter, Britana, brought her long and lingering grief.
Carletta was a member of Our Lady of Loretto Catholic Church in Lodge Grass. She was a faithful member and volunteered in various capacities. She enjoyed reading, especially her Bible, and had a strong life of prayer. During the summer, she provided youth workers with her well-loved fry bread. She was a member of the Ties the Bundle Clan and a child of the Big Lodge Clan.
