Shirley White, longtime resident of Hawthorne and cocktail waitress extraordinaire, would like the world to know that, much to her surprise and definitely against her best wishes and explicit instructions, she died. What more is there to say?

She is survived by her children: Heather (Bill) White; Dana (John) Tommila; Terry; Mike; Rob; Schott and Jaime. Her grandchildren: Brandon Groth; James and Amanda White; Nate (Shasta) Garrison; Zachary and Rhiannon White; Alexis and Paris Tommila and great grandchildren: Aleecia; Jaeden; Andre; Mason; LeLan; Paxton; Rylee; Trenity; and Jonathon. Also survived by those who were her children and grandchildren in her hear, because blood never mattered to her, love did! 

She is reuniting with her sons: David and Jack. 

There will be a Celebration of Life in the place that she lived her life, the El Capitan, upstairs in the Trophy Room, this Saturday, June 14 at 2 p.m.
