Aileen M. White

AGE: 87 • Wilmington

Aileen M. White, age 87, of Wilmington, passed away on April 22, 2016 at Millcroft Nursing Facility.

She was born July 11, 1928, daughter of the late Harold and Rachel (Atwell) Hesser. At the age of 3, Aileen's mother passed away; her father remarried the late Donna (Parsons) Hesser. From that day forward, Aileen had the deepest love and admiration for her new mother.

Aileen worked as a cafeteria cook for the Brandywine School District. Her quick wit and sense of humor endeared her to the students who passed through her lunch line. She retired in 1978 from a job she truly loved. Aileen was an avid reader, enjoyed working cryptograms and crossword puzzles and playing the slots.

Aileen was preceded in death by her husband, Giles White, Jr. and a brother Harold Hesser. Aileen will be dearly missed by her two sons, Harold A. White (Linda) of Port Charlotte, FL and Giles (Butch) White (Barbara) of Newark, DE; three grandchildren, Brenda Lazoda (Victor), Allen White and Gregory White; three great-grandchildren, Alexis and Miranda Lazoda and Eric White. She is also survived by her sister Joan Rodgers of New Castle, DE.

The family would like to thank the staff of Millcroft for their compassionate care of "Mommy" for the past two years and Seasons Hospice for their support.

Service and burial will be private.
