Inez Mildred Owens White


DANVILLE — Inez Mildred Owens White, 99, of Danville, passed away at 12:55 a.m. on June 13, 2013.

Inez was born Jan. 30, 1914, in Broadlands to David and Stella Owens.

She married A. Euel White on Oct. 5, 1935, in Danville.

Inez was a homemaker, a mother, a great cook and was always active in the PTA. She was a teacher’s aide at Edison School kindergarten and took great pride in her years of work as a Red Cross volunteer – a “Gray Lady” – at the St. Elizabeth Hospital gift shop.

She spent many years caring for her beloved husband, Euel, who preceded her in death on Sept. 1, 2003.

Also preceding her in death were her parents, two brothers and three sisters. Her sister, Judy, of Sacramento, Calif., survives.

Also surviving are her daughters, Marilyn (Bob) Lynn of Oakwood, Kathy (Ken) Parsons, Becky (Alan) Woodrum and Angie Shaffer, all of Danville; seven grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

The family will gather for a graveside burial at Sunset Cemetery where she will be laid to rest beside Euel in her Gray Lady uniform.
