She was born on December 30, 1931 in Guilford County, the daughter of the late David and Lela Davis Crisco.

She leaves to cherish her memory; her sons, Terry W. White and his wife, Susan, of Trinity, Curtis W. White, Jr., and his wife, Martha, of Randleman, her brothers, Billy Crisco and his wife, Ruth, of Thomasville, Dennis Crisco and his wife, Bonnie, of Tupelo, MS.
