Mrs. Hallie Marie Shelton White, 92, of Mocksville, died Monday, Sept. 21, 2020 at Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home in Winston-Salem.

She was born Jan. 21, 1928 in Davie County to the late Leslie Smoot Shelton Sr. and Abbie Zelma Baity Shelton.  Mrs. White was a member of Courtney Baptist Church in Yadkinville where she had been a Sunday school teacher for more than 60 years and had a great love for her church family. She was owner/operator of Marie’s Beauty Shop for more than 67 years, and considered fixing hair her ministry. Mrs. White served for many years as the Four Corners correspondent for the Davie County Enterprise Record, a role she inherited from her mother. She enjoyed quilting, embroidery and crocheting and was proud of her handiwork.  Quite the cook, one could never go visit without leaving with a loaf of her delicious sourdough bread. Mrs. White was especially proud of her family, and often remarked about how well they got along and how much they love each other.

She was also preceded in death by siblings, L.S. Shelton and Edna Ann Beck.

Survivors: her husband, Joseph Cranford White; a son, Mark White (Jeanna); granddaughter, Jessica Huyett (Matthew); siblings, Helena Craft, Bettie Smith, Leonard Shelton (Jean), and Bill Shelton (Patricia); sisters-in-law, Irma Jean Shelton and Glenda Sapp; and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 26 at Courtney Baptist Church with the Revs. James Williams and John Brown officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to the service. Be mindful of social distancing and wear face covering.  The family invites friends to come by Lambert Funeral Home Thursday or Friday, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. to sign her register book and pay respects, if unable to attend the services on Saturday.
