Mrs. Paula Ann Masten White, 56, of Franklin Lane, Mocksville, died Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021 at her home surround by family while being held tightly in the arms of her husband of 25 years.

They had a unique and special relationship as they spent most all their hours together.  Whether in their home or at work, they were seldom seen apart from one another.   They enjoyed fishing and taking trips to the beach together, and found a love for church six years ago, having given their hearts to God. Her hands were rarely still as she could be found wrapping meat at Jerry’s Meat Processing, where she worked for 22 years, until the onset of her illness. She loved to cook, work in her yard, grow flowers, and crochet.  She had a passion for animals, especially those needing to be rescued, and possessed a gentle way of healing them. She will be missed by her cat, Peanut, who laid by her head until the end. She loved being a grandmother and cherished every minute with her grandchildren. She sought to find the good in everything and everyone. She believed that no matter the path chosen, people always had the power to change and become better.  She could find joy in the simple things.  Even through her journey with cancer, she remained a loving and caring person.

She was born on July 21, 1964, in Forsyth County, to the late John Paul and Cindy Jarrard Masten. She was also preceded in death by a sister, Tammy Alspaugh, and a grandson, Kaden Powell.

Survivors: her husband, Tim White of the home; 3 children, Katrina Powell, Kenneth Powell and Cody White (Kay Davis) all of Mocksville; 4 great-grandchildren, Khrissa Powell, Bella Powell, Bentley Powell and Kyla Powell; her mother-in-law, Virginia White of Mocksville; 2 brothers, Shane Masten (Jerri) of Mocksville and Chad Masten of Greensboro; sister-in-law, Teresa Stovall (Johnny) of Mocksville; a nephew, Gary Bumgarner (Bethany); special grandnephews, Brantley and Henry Bumgarner; and special friend, Tina Fox.

A funeral service will be conducted at 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28 at Community Covenant Church with Pastors Keith Ledford and Rowan Fay officiating. FM Radio will be available on 93.9. Burial will follow in Zion Chapel Methodist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service.
