Helen White

June 2, 1971 ~ July 7, 2021 (age 50)


Helen Davida White was gifted to Joyce Ann Jackson and Waldo Thomas Davis on June 2, 1971 in Columbus, Ohio. 

Helen was devotedly known as Davida. Davida attended Walnut Ridge High School and Graduated class of 1989.

Davida went to college, but later started work in the medical field. Davida had many artistic hobbies, including reading, writing, drawing, and completing puzzles. She had a loving selfless soul, and never knew a stranger. She was loved by many and would give you her last, even if it meant she would have to go without. Her personality was very conspicuous, to have known her, you would of known love and understood life from a different perspective. We all go through trials and tribulations but one thing we all learned from her was, When life gets you down, you fight back. 

Helen was baptized at Mt. Olivet, and she knew her word. Even when she went astray, she would come back solidified. Not only was she soulful, she was very intuitive. 

Helen was fashionable, she loved her bangs, lipstick, and to match from head to toe. Helen also enjoyed spending time with her daughter and granddaughters whom conducted so much joy to her life. 

She was known to love, never judge and always had a witty comeback. Davida will always be remembered by her beautiful smile, her contagious laugh and always down to have a good time 

Our cherished Helen Davida White was welcomed to imperishable rest on Wednesday, July 7, 2021.

Helen was a Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Daughter, Niece, Cousin, and overall a beloved friend.

You could learn so much from her, without her knowing she was teaching because it was that genuine.

She was a soul warrior, compassionate, Strong, and beautiful. Resilient.
