Obituary for Terry L. White

PITTSFIELD-Terry L. White, 51, died on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, after a long and courageous battle with cancer in Pittsfield.

She was born on September 7, 1968, in Skowhegan, Maine, and graduated from Maine Central Institute with the class of 1986. She was an Ed Tech for more than 20 years at both Manson Park and Vickery schools.

Terry lived life to the fullest. She was a strong, caring woman. She was witty and had a great sense of humor. She enjoyed riding the Harley with Greg and volunteering in her community. She served as secretary for the Sebasticook Valley Elks Lodge #2713 and spear-headed several fund-raising activities to benefit the club and cancer research. She had been involved in the Parent Teacher Organization in the Pittsfield school system, and had at one time directed the pee-wee basketball program for the Pittsfield Recreational Department.

She is survived by her loving husband of 31 years, Gregory White of Pittsfield; her daughter, Katie White and companion Mark Curtis of Pittsfield; her son, O’Bryan White and companion Colleen Lyons of Pittsfield; 3 grandchildren: Eliza, Emma and Sullivan; her mother, Colleen Irish of Pittsfield; brother, Eric Sherwood and wife Lori of Pittsfield; sister, Elaine Woodworth and husband Frank of Hartland; father-in-law, David White; sister-in-law, Lecia Wilson and husband Dale; brother-in-law, Davey White; several nieces, nephews and cousins; and many special friends.

She was predeceased by her dad, Gene Irish; her mother-in-law, Gloria White; and her grandparents, Benjamin & Bertha Fairbrother and Roland & Bertha Sherwood.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Lafayette Family Cancer Institute in Brewer for the years of care and for the chance to participate in the cancer trials. And most especially we want to thank the staff at Sebasticook Valley Hospital who provided Terry and her family with special care during her last days. We are forever grateful for your kindness and compassion.

A celebration of Terry’s life will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, October 5, 2019, at the Elks Lodge, 140 Middle Street, Pittsfield.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your favorite cancer charity.
