White was born Oct. 25, 1932, in Dallas, to Mozelle Shirey and John Greshem Fowler and died July 1, 2013.
She married the love of her life and best friend, L. James White, Oct. 10, 1953.
Early in life she made a commitment to Jesus Christ that she faithfully kept. Her life was a constant witness to her children, her grandchildren, and all who met her of a life in love with the Lord.
She loved her husband, her family and shared a joy of living with all who crossed her path. She always followed Jesus’ example and loved the “least of these” and sought to better the lives of all she knew.
She was an accomplished, well-traveled and much loved person. She graduated as valedictorian from Corsicana High School in 1950, and went on to earn multiple degrees with honors from the University of North Texas and the University of Houston, cumulating in an earned doctorate in math education from the University of Houston in 1986.
She taught math at various educational levels during her career. When she retired, she was the head of the math and engineering department at the College of the Southwest in Stafford.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and brother Dr. Donald Robert Fowler.
Survivors include her husband, L. James White; children Lyn and Brian Farrell of Tomball, Cindy and Mike McFarland of Pleasanton, Jeff White and wife Leslie of Corsicana; grandchildren Margaret and Issac Lamar, Katherine and Cody Foote, David, John and Ethan Farrell, Amanda and Scott Fitzhugh, and Luke, Bekah, Thomas, James, and Elizabeth White; nieces Anita Pishko of Richmond, Va., and Jo Ann McGuire of Corsicana; nephew Justin Fowler of Arlington; sister-in-law Elizabeth Fowler; and numerous loving cousins.
She was greatly anticipating the marriage of her grandson, David Farrell, to Andrea Watson and the birth of two great-children in January 2014.
