On Monday afternoon, March 29, 2021, our dearest Deborah White transitioned to her heavenly home. Her life began on December 28, 1957, daughter of the late Eunice M. and Junie White of Williamsburg, Virginia.
Deborah was educated in the Williamsburg-James City County Public School system, graduating from Lafayette High School. She continued her education and graduated from the University of Colorado in Denver.
Deborah, also known as Debbie by her many family and friends, enjoyed people and held many positions throughout the years. She worked as a dental assistant, nurse's assistant and took classes to become an emergency room nurse. She practiced real estate and had a great affection for working with children. She owned and operated her very own daycare business and was affectionally called "Aunt Debbie" by the many people she helped and inspired along the way.
Although she faced many disappointments, she stood firm on her faith and did not allow her circumstances to define who God created her to be. Deborah was a giver, she had a great sense of humor, was loving, extremely humble, and had the most beautiful smile. She also had a word of encouragement for everyone she met and loved the Lord with all her heart. Deborah was a true worshiper and enjoyed worshiping God in spirit and in truth. She was a street witness for Christ even while suffering from the effects of lupus that made it difficult for her to walk, but her faith was unshakeable. She spoke life into her body every day by reading, meditating, and applying God's word. She never allowed her illness to overcome her and was self-sufficient in handling her daily living activities. Deborah served God as an intercessor, prayer warrior, and member of the praise team. She understood what it meant to be a child of God. Deborah fasted, interceded, and looked forward to taking holy communion. Deborah just believed God!
Fond memories will forever remain with Deborah’s siblings, Brigitte Key, Kelly White, Junius White Sr., and Mark White; nephews and nieces, Rafael White, Junius White, Jr., Aaron White, and Markayla White; great-nephew and nieces, Seyha White, Harmony White, and Julianna White; and a host of other loving relatives and friends.
A funeral service will be held at 12:00 noon Saturday, April 10, 2021, at Kingdom Life Christian Church, with a viewing starting at 10:30 a.m. Due to the current health pandemic, only 75 people may be in attendance for the service with facial coverings and social distancing requirements.
