It is with great sadness that the families of Marlys Ruth White (née Jarrett) announce her passing on June 28, 2021. Marlys is survived by her partner, Terre Wilson, her son, Chris White and his wife, her daughter, Heather Henderson and her husband, her grandchildren, Max White and Alex White, a former daughter-in-law, Stacy White, two sisters, Mary Guest and Shelly Bromberg and an adoring brother-in-law, Steve Bromberg. She is preceded in her death by her husband, Denny White and her mother, Edith M. Jarrett.
Marlys was an adventurer, educator, explorer, innovator and, most importantly, a beloved mother, daughter, sister, wife, partner and friend. Crisscrossing the globe too many times to count, volunteering for everything from knitting baby caps to counting turtles in Cuba, Marlys generated enough energy to light up any room. Adored by all that met her, her presence in our lives does not diminish with this most recent journey.
