Ella Jane White

Listen to this obituary

“Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure.
You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.”

Mrs. Ella Jane White, 84, passed away on January 12, 2022 at her residence in West Point, Mississippi. Jane was born on March 11, 1937 in Clay County, Mississippi. Daughter of the late Walter Howard Poss and the late Edna Rainy Poss. She was preceded in death by her husband, Erwin McKinley White, her son, Daniel Lane Roane (Danny) and her siblings, Sandra Griggs, Charles Gary Poss, Jimmy Poss, Charles, Wallace, Ernie and Lucion Poss.

She longed for the day she would see her son again in the resurrection, as well as all of her family. She enjoyed sewing, working in her flowers, reading the bible and she dearly loved her furbabies, Jack and Jill. She always took good care of her family and was a loving mother, leading by example with grace and dignity. And most of all, with kindness.

Jane is survived by her sister, Betty Jo Bowen (Bud) of West Point, Mississippi; two daughters, Cindy Michael of West Point, Mississippi and Charla Henry (Troy) of Southaven, Mississippi; five grandchildren, Brandy Fiebig, Heather Hoffpauer, Lauren Lee, Daniel Roane and Kate Roane Bergstedt; and twelve great grandchildren.

A graveside service will be held at Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Una, Mississippi at a later date, with Jacob Griggs delivering the eulogy. Calvert Funeral Home of West Point is honored to be entrusted with the arrangements.

  1. Dear White family, one of the saddest things someone can experience is the death of a loved one. Did you know the Bible compares death to sleep? (Psalms 13:3) Just as a person who is asleep is unaware of what is happening around him, the dead are not conscious of anything. There is a promise of hope in the Bible. Our loving God has promised to awaken the dead, as if from sleep, and give them life again. Acts 24:15 says, “There is going to be a resurrection.” The Bible offers comfort for those who are grieving and I hope this brings you comfort as well.
