BETTY FRANCES WHITE
BETTY FRANCES WHITE, 90, originally from Minerva, Ky. and current resident of Ft. Wright, passed away Feb. 5, 2017, at home with her devoted family by her side.
She is predeceased by her brother, Albert Edward Perraut; sister, Virginia Katherine Green; her parents, George Robert and Mary F. Perraut; and son-in-law, Ken Woodruff.
Betty was a pillar of the Ft. Wright community and loved dearly by all who knew her. She was a long-time member of St. Agnes Parish in Ft. Wright, lending her musical training and beautiful voice to the choir for many years. In 1960, she founded Mrs. White’s Kindergarten. She taught for 19 years, touching the lives of more than 450 Northern Kentucky children in an era when few women owned and operated their own businesses.
She is survived by her loving husband Glenn Allan White; her children Michael Allan White (Hetty) of Lexington; James Byron White (Cheri Collis) and Patricia White Yost (Michael) of Louisville; Jo Ann White Davy (Paul) of Houston; and Jane White Woodruff of Cincinnati; as well as 12 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Visitation will be Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017, from 10 a.m. until funeral Mass at 11:30 a.m., both at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 1680 Dixie Hwy, Ft. Wright.
Interment at Mother of God Cemetery at the convenience of the family.
