Obituary for Jo Ann White

Jo Ann Mullins White, 95, of Farmville entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, November 1,

2022. Born on All Saints Day, November 1, 1927 in Van, West Virginia, she was the

daughter of Dewey and Beatrice Deem Mullins.

Following high school, she worked as a PBX operator in Charleston, WV.

In 1948, she married Clifton “Buck” White, also of Van, WV.

Desiring a better life for their young family, they relocated to Baltimore. MD.,

where she opened the Chatterbox Day Care and Kindergarten. Following this successful

venture, the White family eventually moved to Farmville, where she was the owner of two

businesses, LaBelle Femme Beauty Shop and Jean n Jo's Craft Shop. She was also on the

founding committee for the Farmville Christmas Show.

One of greatest pleasures for Jo Ann and her husband was hosting the annual Echo Acres

Family and Friends Reunion for 40 years. In their retirement years, Jo Ann and her

husband, Buck, enjoyed spending their winters in South Florida, including the Florida

Keys, where they made numerous friends from across the country.

Mrs. White is survived by her four children, Beverly Spain and husband, Skip, Jane Martin

and husband, Ken of Farmville, Cliff White and wife, Kim of Cumberland and Jay White,

also of Farmville, sister, Sue Hall of Hanover PA and brother, Charles Mullins and wife,

Barbara of Appomattox, 10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren and numerous

beloved nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Buck White of 63

years, two sisters and 3 brothers.

Family wishes to thank all of her Centra Hospice Nurses and Staff for their unending

kindness and dedication, especially Lenore Green.

There will be a private graveside for immediate family and a Celebration of Life for

extended family and friends in early April, 2023. Arrangements are by Puckett Funeral

Home of Farmville. Memorial contributions may be made to Centra Hospice.
