Margaret Ann Fowler White

Athens — Margaret Ann Fowler White of Malakoff, left her earthly home and stood before her Savior blameless and with great joy on Monday, July 1, 2013.

She was born on Oct. 25, 1932 in Dallas to John Greshem Fowler and Mozelle Shirey Fowler. She married the love of her life and best friend, L. James White, on Oct. 10, 1953.

Early in life she made a commitment to Jesus Christ that she faithfully kept all her life. Her life was a constant witness to her children, her grandchildren, and all who met her of a life in love with the Lord. She loved her husband, her family and shared a joy of living with all who crossed her path. She always followed Jesus’ example and loved the “least of these” and sought to better the lives of all she knew.

Ann was an accomplished, well-traveled and much-loved person. She graduated valedictorian from Corsicana High School in 1950, and went on to earn multiple degrees with honors from the University of North Texas and the University of Houston, cumulating in an earned doctorate in math education from the University of Houston in 1986.

For most of her life she taught math at various educational levels. When she retired, she was the Head of the Department of Math and Engineering at the College of the Southwest in Stafford.

Ann was preceded in death by her father and mother, as well as her brother, Dr. Donald Robert Fowler. She is survived by her husband, L. James White and her sister-in-law, Elizabeth Fowler.

She is also survived by her children, Lyn and Brian Farrell of Tomball, Cindy and Mike McFarland of Pleasanton, and Jeff and Leslie White of Corsicana. Ann’s 10 grandchildren will miss her encouragement and joy of living. They are Margaret and Issac Lamar, Katherine and Cody Foote, David Farrell, John Farrell, Ethan Farrell, Amanda and Scott Fitzhugh, Luke and Bekah White, Thomas White, James White and Elizabeth White.

Ann is also survived by two nieces, Ms. Anita Pishko of Richmond, Va. and Ms. Jo Ann McGuire of Corsicana and one nephew, Mr. Justin Fowler of Arlington and numerous loving cousins.

Ann was looking forward to the addition of three new members to her family with the marriage of her grandson David Farrell to Andrea Watson and the birth of two great-grandchildren in January, 2014.
