Doris White Obituary
WHITE, DORIS B. Doris Barthelson White, 91, of West Hartford, formerly of Hamden, died peacefully after a brief illness on March 30, 2014. She was predeceased by her husband of 61 years, John F. White, a former firefighter for the New Haven Fire Department; two brothers, Walter J. Barthelson, Robert E. Barthelson; and her parents, Ruth and Joseph Barthelson. She is survived by her children, Jacquelyn W. Corrigan and her husband David of West Hartford; her son, Gary J. White and his wife Kathy of Wallingford; and her three “angels,” Heather L. Corrigan of North Conway, NH, and Kelsey B. White and Shannon White Leibowitz, both of Wallingford; as well as many nieces and nephews. Doris graduated from New Haven’s Commercial High School in the class of 1940. She worked for the former Edward Malley Company in New Haven for many years, until its closing in 1982. Doris was admired by many for her sense of style, and for her talents as a cook, decorator and dressmaker. Her greatest joys were her family and sewing, knitting and crocheting for her three granddaughters.
