Gwendolyn Irene White, 85, of Neodesha, passed away Sunday, October 3, 2021.
She was born August 10, 1936, in Rutland Township, Kansas, the daughter of Elmer C. and Agnes Pauline (Tyler) Main.
Gwen was employed as a waitress for many years, giving her a chance to meet new people - which she loved. Gwen enjoyed baking, being outside, gardening and her love of animals was endless. She loved being around children and any opportunity to spend time with them - especially her granddaughter Sydney.
Gwen was married to Tom White until his passing in 1985. She was with Robert A. Dent for 18 years until his passing. Survivors include her significant other Roger McDonald of Neodesha; step-daughter Cheri Quanstrom (Rob Wilson) of Topeka, step-son Jeff McDonald (Amy) of Girard; and her step-grandchildren Noah Quanstrom, Ashley McDonald, Marcy McDonald and Eli Quanstrom. She was preceded in death by her siblings.
Gwen's wishes were to be cremated. A celebration of life will be held in Neodesha at a future date. Memorial contributions may be made to Skiatook Paws and Claws Animal Rescue, Inc. 4605 W C Rogers Blvd, Skiatook, OK 74070.
