Brewer- Carol L. White, 90, from Brewer, Me. went to be with her heavenly father on May 17, 2019 in her home. She was predeceased by her husband; Leland M. White, MD married 65 years. She is survived by her four daughters, twelve grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
Carol was a registered nurse who graduated from Eastern Maine General Hospital School of Nursing in Bangor. Carol received an award for proficiency in nursing and helped with recruitment of new students. She was a head nurse at a neonatal Methodist Hospital in NY City. She assisted her husband in his practice in Caribou for thirty three years. She was a very active member of the United Baptist Church, a member of the sanctuary choir, a soloist of Gospel concerts throughout the State of Maine and New Hampshire and she was an accomplished first soprano singer who recorded two Gospel records. She also coordinated and directed “The Living Christmas Tree” and Easter cantatas for many years. She was the founder and coordinator of the Caribou Bi-centennial Chorus, which evolved into the Caribou Choral Society as a permanent organization. It was her delight to develop a repertoire of classical music based on scripture and familiar Gospel to express her love for her Lord to those who would listen.
She will be sadly missed, particularly for her kindness and her unwavering support for her family.
A graveside service to celebrate her life will be held 11 am Saturday May 25, 2019 at Pine Grove Cemetery, Hammond St. Extension with Evangelist Jerry Moors officiating.
Those wishing to remember her in a special way, may make donations in her memory to the Jefferson Cary Foundation; Leland M. White, MD Educational Fund; P.O. Box 89 Caribou, ME 04736.
