Our Aunt Becky was one of the most amazing, positive, strong, sincere and gentle people we ever knew. She had an immense smile and an incredible spirit of kindness and deep seeded joy. She had an incredible influence on my mom, who passed away a few years ago. Her faith in God, the Holy Spirit, and Salvation through the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ was unwavering. To know that she is Eternally in His Presence is most comforting!

Mrs. White was a member of the James River Chapter of the DAR. She was one of the first people I met when I joined in 2012 and she was so kind to me. She loved educating people on the American Flag and she showed her love of country when she gave a presentation to groups. Please acceptmy condolences on your loss.
