Luella H. White, of Mahopac, NY passed away February 4, 2011 at the age of 101. She was born in Chatham, NY on August 6, 1909, the daughter of Edward and Edna Mallory Hover.

Because of her great love of learning, Lou started her career teaching high school English but left teaching to raise her family. In the 1950’s she developed a printing and advertising business in Ossining, NY which she named White Associates. Wanting to return to teaching, she became an English teacher at Mahopac High School in 1962, where she started the debate team. She taught at Mahopac until her retirement in 1979.

She is survived by her sons, Gary of Montrose, NY and Bruce of Mahopac, her granddaughters Kristina Heath and Devon Hickey, her great-grandsons, Sean, Stephen, Brian and Eric and her sister, Ruth Miller of Chatham, NY.

Following a private cremation, family and friends are invited to celebrate Lou’s life at a Memorial Service to be held on Sunday February 13 at 2 pm at the Lake Mahopac United Methodist Church.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to the Lake Mahopac United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 602, Mahopac, NY 10541
