OBITUARY ~ EVALEE (CASEY) WHITE

Evalee was born June 8, 1929 in Allerton, Iowa to Guy and Ina (OWEN) CASEY. She graduated from Allerton high school in 1947. She married Donald Eugene WHITE of Kellerton at the Leon Chapel on February 28, 1949. They had one daughter, Diana Lee.

Evalee and Donald lived in Davenport, Iowa while raising their daughter.

Evalee was a shipping clerk for Oscar Mayer Foods for 43 years. She was an excellent cook.

The White house was the place to be on weekends for family meals. Holidays were always spent around the kitchen table with plenty of home cooked food.

When Evalee was not working, she played the keyboard.

Evalee and Donald enjoyed boating, camping and square dancing. She loved to play Skip-Bo and was pretty good at it too!

They went to square dance conventions all over the states.

Every year they traveled to Arizona, Texas or Florida for the winter in their travel trailer. In their travels they became friends with many people and enjoyed their retirement.

Evalee lived in Country Ayr Apartments with her husband, Donald, from 2004 until Don's death in 2008.

Some of the ladies at the beauty shop and nursing home thought of Evalee as their "little China doll."

Evalee passed away on June 10, 2013 at the Ringgold County Hospital.

She is survived by her daughter, Diana Lee (John) EURITT; grandsons, Patrick and James KELLER, and seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; brothers, Ronald, Harold, Beryl and Elmo; her sister, Evelyn, and a great-granddaughter, Leah KELLER.

Both Evalee and Donald had many good friends in Davenport, Kellerton and Mount Ayr, who will miss them dearly.

Services were conducted at Watson-Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr on Saturday, June 15, 2013 with Pastor Kathy JOHNSTON officiating. Musical selections included "Amazing Grace," "Sweet Hour of Prayer" and "When The Roll is Called Up Yonder."

Honorary pallbearers were Patrick KELLER, John SAWYER, James KELLER, Brandon KELLER, Andrew KELLER, Barry JACKSON, Richard O'DELL and Tim BROWN.

Burial was in the Memorial Park Cemetery in Davenport on Monday, June 17, 2013.

Memorials are to the family.
