Marguerite Arms White

1928-2016

Long-time Manhattan Beach resident Marguerite White passed away recently. Born in Pasadena, California, "Maggé" was the third child of journalist Louis Lee Arms and Mae Marsh, a silent screen star and D.W. Griffith heroine.
After graduating from Redondo High School in 1946, Maggé
married William Dolan White, also a Redondo graduate and WWII Navy veteran. Their happy union lasted nearly 60 years during which they raised three children on 9th Street in Manhattan Beach.
Maggé was active with the King Harbor Yacht Club, Sandpipers, and Children's Hospital. For a time, Maggé and her friend Pat Dolley ran a shop named Los Muñequitos on Manhattan Avenue, where they sold Mexican arts and crafts.
Preceded in death by her husband Bill, Maggé is survived by sister Meri Swafford of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, brother Brewster Arms (Shirley) of Rancho Santa Fe, daughter Suzie (Mrs. Peter Miller) of Bend, Oregon, son William White (Carole) of Lopez Island, WA, son Paul White, as well as five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Services will be held on August 15 at American Martyrs. In lieu of flowers, donations to Children's Hospital South Bay Auxilliary are requested. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
