Nola White

August 24, 1940 — February 15, 2022

Nola Jean White, 81, of Roswell NM, peacefully went to be with Jesus on February 15, 2022, after a long battle with Alzheimer’s that was ended by Covid 19.

Nola was born on August 24, 1940, to Donald and Ada Potter in the city of Gilette, Wyoming. After Nola graduated from high school, she spent most of her life being a mother and a homemaker.

After graduation, Nola worked at KFC, a few retail jobs, and was a part-time veterinary assistant. She played piano at every church she ever attended, had a passion for music, and an unwavering love of Christ.

In the late 1960s, she met Donald E White in Roswell NM. Nola and Donald married and went on to adopt and raise 1 child, Daniel White.

Nola White never had to work outside of the home once she married Donald, other than part time at the family's gun shop, Western Outdoors in Gallup NM. She had plenty of time to pursue crafting and music as her favorite things to do. She joyfully took care of the house and family, that included all the animals. She loved her animals more than anything. Her life was long and full. She was always full of joy and always had a smile. She knew no stranger and would give love unconditionally. Now she's an angel for angels...

Nola was predeceased by her Parents Donald and Ada, her brother Mark, and her husband Donald. She is survived by her brother Keith and her son Daniel.
