A native and lifelong resident of Savannah, Mrs. Whitfield was the widow of her beloved Archie Whitfield, former City Editor and columnist at the Savannah News/Press, who passed in 2005. She is survived by her daughter, Holly Whitfield Spalding (formerly Armstrong), son-in-law, Charles G.

Mrs. Whitfield was a graduate of Savannah High School, class of 1955. She attended Wesleyan College (Macon), and earned her Nursing degree from Armstrong State. She worked for several years as a flight attendant for American Airlines. Later, she became an RN and patient advocate at various medical facilities and hospitals in the Savannah area. In her later years, she was a licensed massage therapist and a healing touch practitioner. She was an accomplished musician and vocalist who delighted in volunteering her talents at several churches within the Savannah area. She was very active in St. John's Episcopal Church and led the boy's choir for several years.
