Betty Lou Ellen White, of Mora, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at her home. She was 84 years old.
Betty was born on March 27, 1933 in Valley City, North Dakota to parents LeRoy and Fern E. (Lwewllyn) Braasch. Her family moved to Ogilvie, Minnesota when Betty was an infant. She grew up in Ogilvie, graduating from Ogilvie High School as Valedictorian in the class of 1951.
She then married the love of her life, Robert “Speck” White on November 24, 1951. In 1987, they packed up everything and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. After Bob passed away in September of 1997, Betty continued to live there until she moved back to Mora in 2008.
Betty loved to read and some even say she read every book in the library! Her passion was testing new recipes, cooking, and entertaining anyone that came through her door. She was an active church member for years in Ogilvie, Henderson, and Mora United Methodist. She could never seem to get out of the kitchen in whatever church she attended.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents LeRoy Braasch and Fern Block, husband Robert White, and brother Lanny Braasch.
She is survived by her children, Roxanne (Pierre) Santelè, Tracey (Ted) Peterson, Jack (Kate) White and Kelly White; seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren; many other relatives and friends.
