Virginia "Gale" White

September 1, 1940 — January 20, 2024


Virginia "Gale" White

Virginia “Gale” White of Kewadin, was born September 1, 1940, to Robert F. White and Byrnece M. Nelson White. 

She died peacefully on January 20, 2024, at home with family.

   Gale was a gifted artist and had a recognizable, eccentric flare for fashion. The brighter

the better! She loved and cared for many animals and had a heart for any in need. She also

loved people fiercely. Gale had no children of her own, but cared for countless others. Anyone

who came to the house more than once was treated like family, especially children.

   Gale was well known for passing out full bags of candy on Halloween, and scrumptious

popcorn balls at Christmas. She ran a close second to her sister Margaret for homemade bread,

but took a clear first for her amazing cinnamon rolls. Those near and dear had to look out for her

infamous Cure-All Soup.

   In conversation, Gale was a compassionate advocate for the people and animals she

loved. She always expressed her sincere gratitude for the help others provided her in later

years. And Gale could knock your socks off with the wild tales of her youth!

   Gale was preceded in death by her father, her mother, and brother Tom. She is survived

by sisters Kay (Fred) Vermeersch, Margaret (Al) Mowers, Jane (Jack) Howard; nephew Mark

(Missy) White; nieces Victoria Van, Patricia (Rodney) Donaldson, Christen (Scott) Korstange,

and many great nieces and nephews. She was loved and will be missed by all. 

   A celebration of life will take place in the spring.

   Arrangements are in the care of the Central Lake Chapel of Mortensen Funeral Homes.
