Mary was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She loved family and was always trying to take care of others. She was a cook in the Garland and Arlington school districts. Mary had a caring heart for the students she served.
After retirement from the school districts she focused her attention on her grandson, Michael. She would take Michael to the First Baptist Church as often as she was able.
Always “on the go”, to football practice and games and Boy Scout meetings. She always enjoyed going camping and hiking with the scouts, even earlier this year hiking up a mountain. Mary loved her Starbucks white chocolate mocha every morning, drinking a Coke and going for her workouts at Cross-fit in Corsicana a couple of times each week. Seems everyone knew who Mary was. She was very active on Facebook and kept up with other family members that way. Mary made monthly donations to various charities, especially to the ASPCA and Wounded Warriors. She was a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan and didn’t miss watching them on TV, plus her soap operas and other favorite shows. Neighbors could hear her yelling at the TV when she was watching a football game or her favorite game shows.
Mary was preceded in death by her parents.
She is survived by her husband, Dalton White, Jr. and her children; Jeff Tucker of San Antonio, Sophie Santana of Corsicana, Heather Jackson of Ft. Worth and Dalton White, III of Garland and her grandchildren; Michael White, Joseph Bear Williams, Zoe Williams, Brittney Jackson and Zachary Harrell.
A Celebration of Mary’s life will be held on Monday, December 30, 2019 at 3:00 PM at Corley Funeral Home with Father Roger Grist officiating.
The family requests that memorials be made to any of the Cancer Research organizations in lieu of flowers.
