Obituary for Betty Woodburn White

Betty Woodburn White, age 97, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 24th at the Manchester Care Home in Dallas, Texas. She was born in Oklahoma on November 7, 1921 and spent most of her youth in Ponca City, Oklahoma. On December 21, 1942, she joined the war effort and enlisted in the Army and was stationed in Phoenix, AZ. After the war, she received an honorable discharge and moved to the Houston area where she met and married Earl White.

They had two sons, Russell and Michael, and the family moved to Madisonville when the boys became school-age. She loved to sing and was a member of the Madisonville United Methodist Church Choir. In the late 1970’s, she moved to Bryan where she opened up “Specially For You”, a personalizing gift shop. She was a member of the Women’s Club of Bryan and FUMC of Bryan. Upon retiring, she focused on the things she loved – traveling and spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In her later years, she moved to the country to be closer to Russell and his family on his ranch.

A private service and burial will be held Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Madisonville Cemetery. A brief time of public visitation will be held at the Madisonville Funeral Home from 1:30 PM until the memorial service beginning at 2:00 PM.
