Father: Victor V. Foreman
Mother: Stella L.

Spouse: Junior H. White
Marriage: Nov.18, 1955 Nampa, Idaho

Betty Rose White, 72, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great Grammy, passed away Sunday, Aug. 16, 2009, at Southwest Idaho Advanced Care Hospital in Boise with her family by her side and her two daughters holding her hands. Betty succumbed to severe Pulmonary Fibrosis, a disease she bravely fought with dignity until the very end. Betty was born on Sept.14, 1936, in Oreana, Idaho, to Victor V. Foreman and Stella L. Foreman. She was the youngest of nine children. She was raised and educated in Oreana and the Nampa area. Mom told us many stories, adventures and shanigans of growing up with eight brothers and sisters.

Betty married Junior H. White on Nov.18, 1955, in Nampa. They would have celebrated 54 years of marriage this November. They had five wonderful children and helped raise a grandson. Betty was employed at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center. This was more than just a job to her, she made it her career. She seldom missed work and made great friends at St. Al's. She retired as Evening Supervisor of Environmental Services after 23 years of service. Mom loved holidays, especially Thanksgiving, Turkey Taco Day and Christmas or any day her kids and grandkids were all together with her. She dearly loved her family and absolutely adored her grandkids. A new spark was lit in mom with the birth of her great-granddaughter, Jordan Rose on June 19, 2007. Mom's greatest joys were her family, watching and reading mysteries and crocheting. She was very proud and excited when an afghan she had made for a dear family friend was entered at the Western Idaho Fair last year and won second place.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents, and her siblings, Victor A. Foreman, Elver E. Foreman, Leola L. Benner, Pauline M. McMillin, Bruce V. Foreman, Lavern E. Foreman, V. Marie White and Glen G. Foreman. She is survived by her husband, Junior H. White, her brother-in-law Howard R White of Nampa; her children, Martye J. White, Steven H. White and his wife Kathy, Rocky V. White, DeVonna R. Parrie and Tawnya J. White; her grandkids, Cody J. White, Denver G. White, Tyson V. White and McKenzie R. White; her great-granddaughters Jordan Rose White and Bailey Jo White. Mom had two special nephews and a niece who were very close to her and our family, due to the fact that they are the children of her sister Marie who was married to our dad's brother, Howard. They are Larry White of Middleton, Dennis White and Donna Voight of Weiser.

A private committal service will be held at Cloverdale Memorial Park.
