Rose White Atkins

February 17, 1946 ~ May 19, 2022 (age 76)


On May 19, 2922, Rosa White-Atkins closed her eyes and departed from this system. She was born on the 17th of February 1946 in Farmville, VA to the late Charles Irving White and Lucy Blanton-White. She was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses on September 2, 2018. She learned about the truth from her mother and aunt, she always wanted to learn as much as she could about Jehovah. Her baptism was the most important milestone in her life as she was always wholeheartedly serving Jehovah. 

She is proceeded in death by her brothers Johnny, Phillip and Charles White and her sisters Alberta and Dorothy White. She leaves behind her lovely family consisting of her devoted husband Eddie Atkins, her two sons Lasean and Hassan White and stepson Tony Edwards, her grandchildren Jada White and Kanira White , her siblings Osborn Hite, Lindsey White Sr (Ruby) Billy White (Darlene), Shirley White, Lena White, and Lucy White-Scott (Francell).

She left many marks, memories, and soft spots in the hearts of all who knew her. To have known her is a cherished gift; as her hear was always giving to others and forgiving. She would always be remembered as the family's historian; as she knew most of the family history and was always willing to share stories with those who would listen. 

Her potato salad!! Touched the tastebuds of many. She might have fussed about peeling those potatoes, nevertheless, it was the centerpiece of the table. she always knew how to gather HER family and friends to have unforgettable laughter, memories, as well as creating unbreakable bonds between her nieces, nephews, and friends that she leaves behind. 

She always kept her promise to her oldest sister to look after her children and she did to the very end! Rosa R. White-Atkins lived up to her name as she as a beautiful soul, and she will always be remembered as such.
