PORTAGE LAKES, Ohio - Waneda E. White, age 94, joyfully entered into Heaven to be with her Lord and Savior and loved ones on November 17, 2020. She was born on December 26, 1925 to John and Katherine Robinson. Waneda had three wonderful, athletic brothers whom she loved dearly, so sports came natural for her. She loved to watch the Cavs, the Indians, Ohio State and the Browns games.
She married and came to Akron at age 19 and resided in Coventry Township most of her life. Waneda was a member of the Akron Baptist Temple and taught Sunday School there for over 30 years. That was the love of her life. She believed in keeping the Sabbath day holy and attended several churches in her later years.
Spending time with her children, grandchildren, and friends was the highlight of her life, and life couldn’t get any better than that. Waneda liked to travel, fish, play cards, games, sew, bake and garden. She took many trips with the ABT Golden Agers and cherished the precious moments she spent with her wonderful friends. She outlived them all, but those times together were priceless to her.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Russell; three brothers, Charles, Kenneth and Leroy.
She is survived by her daughters, Donna White, Linda (Kevin) Lonsdorf; and son, Terry (Chris) White; three grandchildren, Brandon and Taylor White, and Jonathan Lonsdorf. Also, her specially claimed children, Judy and Don Mervine. She also leaves a few nieces, nephews, and cousins who are also loved.
Her gentle spirit and kind heart will be missed by us. She was our treasure and will remain forever in our hearts.
