Born May 28, 1927, on the family farm in Capac, Michigan, Marian died Oct. 29, 2017, joining her husband, Laurence H. White, and daughter Jill White, who preceded her in death.
A graduate of Michigan State University in 1949 with a degree in textile retailing, Marian became a buyer for J. L. Hudson's in Detroit. She married Larry in 1951, and they celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary just prior to his death in 2014.
Marian and Larry raised their family in Lake Park, Florida, and moved to Jacksonville in 2008. Marian is survived by her daughter, Susan Klauk (Glen); her son, Jeffrey White (Anne); four grandchildren (Lisa Klauk Ellington, Kevin Klauk, Sara and Jennifer White) and two great-grandchildren.
Marian's love for animals, and her gentle spirit are her legacy. The family would like to thank the staff at The Palms of Ponte Vedra for their loving care for the past two years. Go in peace, Mom, you were truly loved.
No services are planned at her request. The family asks that any remembrances be made to Community Hospice and Palliative Care in Marian's name at 4266 Sunbeam Road, Jacksonville, FL 32257.
