In Memory of Karen V. White

Created by LAKISHA White

Karen V White

Mrs. Karen Veronica Tucker White went home to be with her Lord and Savior suddenly on Friday, Nov. 2, 2012. She was born on Jan. 6, 1943, in MacDonald, Pa. Karen held a degree in early childhood education from West Virginia State College. She taught children from pre-K through elementary school and was employed by the Head Start program in Fayetteville, NC. She married her high school sweetheart and forever love, Randolph C. White Sr., on June 1, 1965. During their military career, they traveled and lived across the U.S., never passing up the opportunity to expose their sons to the cultural and historical wonders of this country. Karen was a woman of phenomenal faith, and this remained a cornerstone of her life's journey. She was a compassionate and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and faithful friend. She enjoyed traveling, entertaining family and friends at home, and maintained a fervent belief in the importance of lifelong education. She was a masterful home decorator, avid reader, loved a good movie, and maintained pace with the times in all things.

Her generosity knew no bounds, and in this way, Karen left her mark on many. Family, friends, hospital caregivers, and other service providers all knew the generous expressions of appreciation and love often conveyed through a thoughtful card, small gift, or other expressions of gratitude. Spending time in the company of her children and grandchildren was easily Karen's greatest passion. She will remain forever and always the number one fan of her two sons, always present and cheering at sporting events, school activities, professional milestones, and inspiring others by the example of her relationship with her sons. Her daughters-in-law were among her best friends, and she spoke with them frequently, always providing loving guidance and support. Her absolute greatest joy was her grandchildren. She thoroughly enjoyed speaking to them and consistently provided a degree of nurturing and encouragement in all things. As is the privilege of any grandmother, she never missed an opportunity to proudly boast to family, friends, or strangers about her grandchildren.

Please join us in honoring Karen's legacy by helping to advance sarcoidosis research. With no known cause or cure, thousands continue to suffer every day. In honor of those we lost and those who continue to fight, we will work to end the suffering from this disease.
