Doris White, of DeValls Bluff Arkansas, found peace at the end of her life’s journey on Friday, April 22, 2022 at the age of 83. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 35 years, Vernon White, her parents Henry & Georgie Price, sisters Maxine Steward, Ruby Carnahan, Bonnie Rieke, and Phyllis Erwin. Doris is survived by a large and loving family including her sister, Glenna Chandler, her children, Paul & Susan Castleberry of Mustang, OK, Don & Debbie Castleberry of Hickory, NC, Wade & Josie Allmond of Forrest City, AR, Sharon & Glenn Ferguson of Flint, MI, Donna & Kenny Alexander of DeValls Bluff, AR, Vernon & Stacy White of Ashdown, AR, and Terry White of Delray Beach, Florida. Additionally, Doris’s legacy is lovingly celebrated by 14 grandchildren and a multitude of great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and precious friends. Doris was a woman who was equally at home enjoying a room full of people dancing to Country & Western music as she was sitting quietly at a table enjoying her own company. She loved being challenged and found joy in piecing together intricate jigsaw puzzles and beating herself at solitaire. She bore many titles but her favorite was “grandma.” She spent countless days watching as children played in the yard, applying band-aids, making pallets in the floor, and ensuring that there was a never-ending flow of kool-aid, sweet tea, popsicles, John Wayne films, hugs, advice, stories, and as was often most needed, a quiet kindness and understanding. Her laughter will echo through the hearts of her loved ones, and she will be greatly missed.
“I’ve tried to live my life so that my family would love me and my friends respect me. The others can do whatever…they please.” –John Wayne.
