Sharon was one of Weiser’s local artists. She worked with many media but was especially known for her oil and watercolors. She also designed and created jewelry. She loved playing bridge and Mahjong and was a talented and creative cook, superb gardener, and avid reader. She loved the time she spent with her friends and appreciated their many kindnesses during her long illness. She is greatly loved and will be missed by all who knew her.
Louis Albert White – known as Louie – of Weiser, Idaho passed away peacefully on September 22, 2019 joining his wife Sharon Lee Keefauver White who preceded him in death by only four days. Louie was born January 15, 1936 in Appalachin, New York to Cecil Jerry White and Katherine Elizabeth Eaton. He died peacefully at home at age 83. Louie is survived by his son Jeffrey Bryan White (wife Shelly) and his daughter Shannon Lee White (husband Randy L. Crosby), four wonderful grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, and his nephew Wade Lee Adams and his three daughters: Jesse Lynn, Katie Marie and Brandi Jean.
Louie served in the United States Air Force. He and Sharon moved to Weiser in 1969 and he worked at Champion Home Builders until he retired. He was a skilled carpenter and helped his wife with her wood crafts and beautiful garden. Louie love hunting and fishing and “stringing you along.” His fishing stories grew bigger and better with each telling, but never bigger or better than his smile or his heart. His sense of humor and gentle ways will be greatly missed.
According to their wishes, a joint memorial service will held this coming spring. Friends and family will all be welcomed.
