Obituary for Dorothy Irene White

Dorothy “Dotti” Irene White

Dorothy Irene White, born April 22, 1928, in Tacoma
Washington, passed away peacefully at the age of 90
on October 12th, 2018 in the city of her birth.
She grew up on a farm in Yelm and fondly remembered
following her father as he plowed the fields. She
collected the worms as they were unearthed, stuffed
them into the pockets of her overalls and later fed
them to the chickens.

Dorothy’s life revolved around her family. She was
very kind and loving with a warm heart and took great
pride in her children and grandchildren. She was
passionate about gardening as well as other interests
too many to list. She worked hard and played hard, and
her joyful spirit was contagious to all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her loving father and
mother, James, and Lavina McLaughlin, respectively;
and sisters, Pat and Jean as well as daughter in law,
Mary White, and beloved friend Charlie.

She is survived by her sons, James, and Brady White,
daughter Kathryn White and grandchild, Nathan White
and step-grandchildren Nathanial Lewis, Tabitha Bastien, and Jaycie
Wakefield as well as a special niece, Sandy.

She will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered
by her family. Her strength, determination, and
perseverance will continue to shine inside all of us.
She was a fighter to the end and thankfully is now at
peace. We love you, mom!

Thank you to all who cared for her in her time of
need at Tacoma General Hospital and Orchard Park
Rehabilitation.
