Mrs. White spent 32 years in the nursing field. She graduated from Presbyterian Hospital Nursing School in Charlotte, North Carolina, and did post graduate work in Chicago Lying-In Hospital in Chicago. She came to Lanier Memorial Hospital to be an obstetric supervisor when the hospital opened and finished her nursing career with Dr. John Morgan.

As an active member of Lanett First United Methodist Church, Mrs. White taught the 4-year-old Sunday school class, was the Sunday school secretary, a member of the church choir, and served as Altar Guild Chairman for many years. She was also a member of UMW and missionary circle. She spent countless hours volunteering at the church that was dear to her heart.

Affectionately known by many as Mama Lib, she was a very loving and caring mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother to more than just her family.
