Nancy White

Nancy Tatum White was born on July 2, 1932, in Columbia, Missouri. She passed away peacefully into the arms of her Heavenly Father on May 24, 2024 with her children by her side. She had been living in Big Canoe, Georgia for over 25 years. 

Nancy was married for 58 years to the love of her life, Phil White. They were married on June 15, 1957 at Peachtree Christian Church in Atlanta. Together, Phil and Nancy lovingly raised their family of three children, along with the blessing of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. After living in Atlanta for 50 years, they retired in Hilton Head, South Carolina for a season and then made their final move to Big Canoe, Georgia to be closer to family.

Growing up in Atlanta, Nancy Ann was a true southern belle, having the honor of representing her class on the May Court at her high school, Washington Seminary. She was also chosen as sweetheart of ATO fraternity at Emory and Duke Universities as well as enjoying her knack for fashion and style through modeling at Rich’s Department Store.

Nancy attended Wesleyan College in Macon, GA, her freshman year, then transferred to Duke University where she graduated with a BA in Sociology and Psychology. After her college years, she taught Kindergarten at her former Elementary School, RL Hope.

Always having a desire to help people in need, Nancy served others through many local charities and ministries as well as helped to start a women’s shelter in Atlanta while president of the Riverside Women’s Club in Sandy Springs. She was an active member of the Big Canoe Chapel, teaching and participating in Bible Studies, helping with outreaches, VBS programs and serving through the Women’s Fellowship Ministry. Nancy was an avid student of the Bible, always eager to share her faith in Christ, scriptures, and prayers to lift others up. She had a passion for world history and an incredible memory to share stories of different time periods and the impact they had on our lives.

A beloved matriarch of the family, Nancy cherished her role as a loving wife, as a mother and especially as Nana. Her greatest joy was in spending time with her “seven from heaven” grandkids, great-grandkids, family, and friends, and showering all those she was around with her heart of kindness, thoughtfulness, and compassion.

Nancy was a true Proverbs 31 virtuous woman who has left an incredible legacy of faith, love and generosity that will forever have an impact on her family, friends, and all who knew her for many generations to come.

Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, George Phillips White; her father, Russell Jerome Tatum; and mother, Grace Moss Tatum.
