Maria "Mary Lou" White

Forked River - Maria "Mary Lou" White, age 73 of Forked River, passed away peacefully on Sunday June 10 at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA with family at her side. She was born and raised in Trenton, NJ until moving to the Cranberry Hill section of Forked River in 1973 to raise her family. She worked as a teacher's aide in the Lacey Township School system until her retirement in 2009. In her spare time, she could be found at the Golden Nugget with the many friends she had made over the years or watching her beloved grandson on the baseball diamond.

Mary Lou tirelessly took care of everyone around her including many close family and friends. She was a loving wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and equally devoted in all of these roles. She was never one to put herself or her needs first. Family was the most important thing in her life and for that her family is eternally grateful.

She was predeceased by her parents Cesare and Anne (Borgianini) DeZan, her brothers Ronald and David DeZan and her beloved husband Robert "Bud" White.

Mary Lou is survived by her sons Scott White and Kyle White of Powder Springs, GA, her daughter Stacy White of Forked River, NJ and the light of her life her grandson Garrett Reilly of Forked River, NJ. She is also survived by her love and companion Gary Gorman of Old Bridge, NJ.
