Marlene E. White
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Marlene Elizabeth White, of Moncton after an unexpected short illness. Marlene passed away peacefully at the Sackville Memorial Hospital on Thursday, January 30, 2020, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Sydney, NS, she was a daughter of the late Gilbert and Evelyn (Fewer) White.
She loved children, animals and being surrounded by nature. Marlene had a kind heart and always put others ahead of herself. After retiring from the Atlantic Lottery she volunteered at the Ronald MacDonald Room and for Birth Right, devoting much of her free time to these organizations. She also donated what she could to countless charities.
She will be dearly missed by her children Jennifer White (Jason Wells), Riverview, NB, Alana (Peter) Geddes, Halifax, NS, Todd (Tracy) MacNeil, Upper Rawdon, NS; grandchildren, Reid Geddes, Kyle and Brianna MacNeil; sister Joan Hansen; brother Tony White; partner, Frank Veitenheimer, Moncton, NB, and her beloved dog Niki, and cats Princess and Marty.
She was predeceased by her sister Judy (Fred) Grezel.
