On Saturday, August 13, 2022, Norma White left this earth for her heavenly home after a very
brief illness. Norma was born October 2, 1940, to Richard and Audra Brewer. She was a resident
of Jonesville for the majority of her life.
Norma was a graduate of Block High School and Northeast Louisiana University. She was a
career public educator. She spent her career with the Catahoula Parish School Board until she
retired. She taught and was a guidance counselor at Block High School and was the Supervisor
of Secondary & Vocational Education for the district. During her time in education, she touched
the lives of many students and held those times as some of her most precious moments.
In addition to her career, Norma loved her family and friends. She loved visiting with people
and made sure she talked to everyone she saw. Over the years, she developed lasting
relationships with many who became her ‘extra children.’ She spent her life enjoying hunting,
fishing, camping, traveling, and reading. She also enjoyed spending time with her Golden Girls
friends and with her great-grandsons, Carter and Sam. Norma loved living on the lake and took
great pleasure in shooting any snake that dared come into her yard. She was a member of the
First Baptist Church of Jonesville.
Norma was preceded in death by her parents; sister Dicksie Mae Brewer; husband Jack T.
White; daughter Darla White; sons Jesse White and Bobby Jo White; grandsons Rex Lofton, Eric
