Anna D. White

Sunrise: December 6, 1932

Sunset: October 31, 2022

Anna Delores White was born in Philadelphia, PA to the late Harry Horton and Annie Henry on December 6, 1932.

Embracing life, Anna achieved goals that were important to her. Therefore shortly after graduating from the Philadelphia Public School system, she became a practical nurse. She loved working in the medical field at numerous hospitals until she decided to do private home care for many patients.

Anna was united in holy matrimony to George S. White Jr in April 1948. This union was blessed with one child.

Although born, raised and living in Philadelphia most of her life, she decided to retire and move to Norfolk, VA to be closer to her only child. In Virginia, she devoted her life to Christ and became an faithful member of Holy Trinity Outreach Mission. We can assume that her trust in God helped her to face health challenges and still maintain a positive outlook on life.

On Monday October 31, 2022, Anna entered into eternal life. She is survived by her only child, Patricia Ann DeShields, her Son in Law Frank DeShields, 2 Grandchildren, Karen Carter and Kenneth Pride Jr., 3 Great Grand children, Anthony T. Pride, Ashley Stephens, and Alex Robinson, 2 great great grandchildren, Anthony K. Pride and Nathan Gravely, 3 sisters, 2 brothers and a host of nieces and nephews.
