Mrs. White was born Jan. 15, 1939, at Cherryvale, Kan., to Everett and Mary Knight Jacobs. She was raised at Nampa, Idaho, and Ontario, receiving her education in those areas. She married Floyd White on March 8, 1956, at Winnemucca, Nevada.

She had many hobbies, including crocheting and collecting dolls. Being the grandma that she was, the newest addition to the family was always given a beautiful crocheted blanket made with love. She was a generous person who gave and never expected anything in return. Her greatest love was her family. “She has touched our lives and will remain forever in our hearts,” family members said.
