Mary Lou White

Mary Lou White passed away peacefully with her family by her side July 24, 2015. She was 83.

Upon her wishes, no services will be held. To honor and remember Mary, choose a beautiful day and take one of “her walks.”

Mary was born June 9, 1932 in Sanger, California, to Stanley and Mary Levedahl. She attended high school in Richmond, California, where she met and married Jene White, her husband of 51 years.

Nevada County has been her home for over 40 years. She worked at Chicago Park School and later at the Grass Valley Group, from which she retired.

Mary loved her “kids” and “grandkids”. She also enjoyed gardening, photography, and taking her walks.

We will miss our mother’s beautiful blue eyes, contagious smile, and positive attitude.

Mary is survived by her son Steve White (Linda); daughters, Rebecca Allen and Chris Adams (Rick); grandsons, Daniel Adams, Jason White (Heather); great-grandson Tristan; niece Betsy Hansen (Eric); and nephew Richie Greuter.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Stanley and Mary Levedahl, husband Jene White, brother Jim Levedahl, and sister, Sally Greuter.

Thank you to everyone at Golden Empire Nursing Center for the care, comfort, and support given to our mother and family.

Arrangements are under the direction of Hooper and Weaver Mortuary.
