Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Our Mom, Teresa Alice White, RN (Tina), age 77, passed away peacefully on August 12, 2017 holding the hands of her daughters after a long battle with COPD. Tina was born in Boston, Massachusetts on October 3, 1939. She was blessed with a wonderful childhood and she enjoyed a long, fulfilling career as a registered nurse. She was a beautiful and wise woman with a gentle disposition, yet had a backbone of steel, because of her strong faith in Jesus Christ. She was not afraid to look the devil in the eye and say, “Not today, Mr. !” God gave her the gift of kindness. She was always ready to listen and somehow you would know everything was going to be okay after talking with her. She had a quiet strength from the Lord that carried her through when life got hard; as a result, she rarely complained. Tina’s true passion and love was for her family. She worked full time in nursing yet always made time to make her famous “eggs-in-the-glass” breakfast for us in the mornings before school and then had homemade chocolate chip cookies waiting for us when we got off the bus in the afternoons. Her devotion to her family is forever imprinted on our hearts and we are so blessed to call her our Mom.
Tina is preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Theresa Sekerchak of Boston, Massachusetts. She is survived by her sister, Joan Sands of New Hampshire; her son, Tom White; her two daughters, Mrs. John (Stacey) Davenport and Mrs. Thomas (Shelley) Satterwhite; four grandchildren: Seth, Dylan, Josiah and Taylor, as well as several nieces and nephews.
