Service for JoAnn White:
JoAnn (Edmonds) White, 71, passed away November 23, 2021 in her home town of Pueblo, Colorado. Preceded in death by her parents, Berta and York Edmonds, sister Eleanor Koester (Raymond), and brother Donald Edmonds (Yvonne). Out of 3 siblings, she is survived by her brother John Edmonds (Carol), who lives in San Antonio, Texas. She was born on April 12, 1950 in Pueblo. JoAnn was married 46 years to Mark White on June 14, 1975, and had 3 children; Amanda Murphy (Jeremy), James White, and Jillian White, with one grandchild, Willa Rose Murphy, and 6 nieces and nephews.
JoAnn was a graduate of Pueblo East High School, class of 1968, and received BA and Master’s degrees in Education at what is now Colorado State University, Pueblo. She taught her entire career at Haff Elementary School in Pueblo for 30 years, with the majority of time as a second-grade teacher.
In addition to her love of cooking, she enjoyed entertaining with family and friends, shopping, traveling, and landscape gardening with flowers. We will miss the dedication it takes to make a warm and friendly home environment and constant display of flowers throughout spring, summer, and fall. We were blessed to share our lives with her, and will miss her dearly. Memorial service, 2 p.m. Dec. 14, 2021, in the Montgomery & Steward Chapel.
