Sherry Ann White
Sherry Ann White, 58, of Senatobia, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, June 26, 2018. After years of struggling with debilitating health issues, Sherry Anne, as she was affectionately known, stepped into Glory, with family and close friends by her side.
Sherry Ann was born on October 21, 1959 in Tunica to Jessie Pounders White and Alton White. She loved life, family, and adored her church family.
She was a faithful member of Wyatte Baptist Church, until the time she was unable to attend. She often shared her faith, her love of children, her passion of music and singing Southern Gospel and was a “mother figure” for all. She also enjoyed reading, computers, and was especially partial to her Ole Miss Rebels football and baseball. To sum it up, she was a jewel. We will always remember her ability to give and take.
She could give with the best and her smile could brighten the darkest room.  She will be greatly missed; however, with God’s help; the memories made through the years will sustain us and fill the void left by her passing.
Sherry Ann leaves behind her loving family which includes her sister, Debbie Johnson (Roger) of Senatobia; her brother, Mike White (Dee) of Batesville; 18 nieces and nephews; and 9 great nieces and nephews. She  was preceded in death by her parents, the late Jessie Pounders White and Alton White.
Funeral services were held on Friday, June 29, 2018, at 2 p.m. in Wyatte Baptist Church with Bro. Scott Rogers and Bro. Brad Jones officiating. Interment followed in Senatobia Memorial Cemetery. Visitation was held on Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m.  in the Senatobia Chapel of Ray-Nowell Funeral Home and again on Friday from 1 to 2 p.m. in Wyatte Baptist Church.
