Our beautiful mother Sarah Bernice Allman White, age 94, passed peacefully at home on February 21, 2021, surrounded by her family.
She was born July 28, 1926 in Mt. Pleasant, NC. After graduating Lenoir-Rhyne College, she married the love of her life, a handsome WWII Army enlistee Loren J. White from Eugene Oregon. Col. White served over 40 years active duty and Sarah loved every minute of being his military wife as they adventured the world together. Sarah was a career English teacher who spoke several other languages. A talented person, she enjoyed painting, sewing, singing, dancing, entertaining, sports, gardening and, most of all, being a mother to their three children. Sarah is preceded in death by her husband and their eldest son Loren Douglas, her parents Jacob Monroe Allman and Laura Carrie Eury Allman, her brothers Boyd and Ralf, and her sisters Gertrude Almond and Marie Almond.
She is survived by her son Gerald (Luana), daughter Patricia (Bill) Elkins and four grandchildren: Jennifer (James) Adams, Trish White, and Loren and Judy Elkins. She is also survived by seven siblings: Fred (Gatha), Arnold, Carl, Glenn (Sable), Cecil (Violet) Mary Isenhour, and Clarence (Hilda).
Funeral service will be 11am Saturday, March 6th at Gordon Funeral Home of Mt. Pleasant, the family will begin receiving friends at 10am prior to the service. She will rest in peace with her husband at Mt. Gilead Lutheran Church Cemetery.
We are deeply saddened by her passing and will miss her immensely but rejoice in the certainty that Sarah and Loren are together again, reunited forever in heaven.
