Mrs. Mahalinda White, age 88 of Hendersonville, TN, died Saturday afternoon in Hendersonville Medical Center. A native of Onancock, VA, she was the daughter of the late Everett Powell and Mahalinda Kellam Parks, and preceded in death by her husband, Richard Downing White Sr, and a son, Everett P. White. Mrs. White was a retired Occupational Therapist with Accomack County Nursing Home and a member of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Onancock, VA. She served for over 20 years as a Historian in Colonial Williamsburg, which she valued as the highlight of her life – sharing the stories and history of our country. She conducted tours and had the ability to befriend anyone with whom she came in contact. Her family describes her as “a friend to everybody.” That fact was evident in her being affectionately known to friends and family alike as “Granny.” She is survived by four children: Alice Thomas of Richmond, VA; Dr. Richard D. White Jr. of Baton Rouge, LA; John C. White of Troutville, VA; and Mahalinda W. Crocker of Hendersonville, TN; 14 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. The family will gather to conduct private services to celebrate Granny’s life.
