Irene "Mickey" (Whittleton) White

Irene “Mickey” (Whittleton) White, 100, formerly of Medina, NY, entered into rest on November 26, 2022.

Born October 27, 1922 in Medina, she was the daughter of the late James and Gladys (Llewellyn) Whittleton. Mickey was a graduate of Medina High School class of 1941. She worked for 30 years at FMC in Middleport as a key punch operator, retiring in 1985. Mickey was a member of the First Baptist Church in Medina. In 1984 she married Roland White. The couple were members of the Middleport United Methodist Church and they wintered in Florida for many years. In 2004 they moved to Austin, Texas to live with her daughter, Ellyn and son in-law, Greg MacConnell.

Mickey enjoyed roller skating, dancing, crocheting, reading, playing dominoes and listening to organ music. She also enjoyed watching and listening to Scottish bagpipers. Her family surprised her by hiring bagpipers in full regalia to serenade her at her 100th birthday party.

Mickey was predeceased by her husband, Roland; her son, Albert Wayne Keller and daughter in-law, Sandra; and brothers, Arthur, James, Alfred and Norman Whittleton.

She is survived by her daughter, Ellyn (Greg) MacConnell of Austin, Texas; sister in-law, Nicole Jordan; grandchildren, Melissa Henshaw, Kathryn Ames, Julie Keller (Frank) Rizzo and Brandon (Yolanda) Keller; great-grandchildren, Noah and Olivia Henshaw, Elizabeth and Nolan Axford,  Hannah and Devon Keller; also several nieces and nephews.
