The former Lois E. Waters was a native of Baltimore and a graduate of St. Frances Academy. She entered the novitiate of the Oblate Sisters of Providence two years before attending Coppin State College, where she earned a bachelor's degree in 1949. She earned a master's degree at Loyola College in 1967.
Her husband, John H. White Sr., is a retired assistant production superintendent with the Olin Corp.
In addition to her husband, her survivors include a son, John H. White Jr. of Suffolk, Va.; two sisters, H. Louise Gambrill and M. Doris Waters, both of Baltimore; and a brother, R. Lawrence Waters of Baltimore.
