Sarah Anne White
Aug. 4, 1934 - June 11, 2019
Sarah (Sally) Anne White went to be with our Lord on June 11, 2019. She was surrounded by several family members as she passed away peacefully due to complications following surgery in Longview. She was 84 years of age. Preceding her in death is her husband Bill White and her son Bill Lowery (Buzzy).
Sally was born on Aug. 4, 1934, to Nellie (Adams) and Ted Ullrich in Longview. She attended Kelso High School and was a star basketball player in addition to earning straight A's. Her father was a commercial fisherman and Sally often related many fond memories of growing up in a “float house."
Sally was employed by Wasser and Winters Co. starting in 1965 and continued working there until she was 79 years of age. Sally enjoyed playing Bingo, traveling, taking her many grandkids bowling and fishing. She had a sharp mind throughout her life.
Sally always had a smile on her face and demonstrated unshakable optimism throughout life's challenges. She was a pillar in her family and cared for everyone in her life with an extremely generous heart. Sally was always up for anything. She greeted every day and everyone with a smile and had an irresistible laugh. Sally was never known to worry about anything and had a strong belief in God. This joy and passion for life is a legacy for her family.
Sally will be remembered by many including two of her children, Mary-Jane Lowery Skibba and Ted Lowery. She leaves nine grandchildren, Sara Skibba, Jeremy Skibba, Kristi Franett, William Lowery III (Billy), Christopher Lowery, Cayleen Everette, Cara Caywood, Coleen Lowery, and Sierra Lowery. Sally also leaves 26 great-grandchildren whom she adored. Countless more family friends also loved “Grandma Sally” as she was a large part of all their lives.
