Born to Nelson Jarvie Darling and Jeanette Devine Darling on July 19, 1924 of Swampscott.

Loving sister and sister-in-law to Nelson Jarvie Darling Jr. and Ruth Lacroix Darling (deceased) of Swampscott.

In 1949 married to George Roland White (deceased). From 1946 through 1954 Phyllis’ golf game accumulated six Women’s championships at Tedesco Country Club. Most feel there would have been more as Phyllis and George were having three of their four children during this time period.

In the summer of 1978 she relocated to Southern California. Soon thereafter, sons George and Allen relocated to that area, as well. She enjoyed 15 years there with family and new found friends. And at no surprise, her California residence was on the 11th fairway.

In 1993, she fell in forever love with her brother-in-law, Charles (Chuck) Mills White. They settled and built their dream home in Pampa, Texas, and lived happily ever after until Chuck’s passing in 2014. A natural path brought Phyllis back to her original home in Swampscott in 2015, where she lovingly enjoyed her family and friends on a daily basis.

Principled, soft spoken, gentle, wonderful sense of humor, empathetic, philanthropic and a second mother to many nieces, nephews and children’s friends. All were welcome with open arms. Whenever you left a visit with Phyllis, she could always be found at the back door giving you a final wave!! Sweet Dreams! 

Service information: Celebration of Life Saturday, July 20 at 11 a.m. at Unitarian Universalist Church, 101 Forest Ave., Swampscott. Cemetery services in Swampscott, Pampa and Palos Verdes at a later date.
