Obituary for Kenneth Thomas White

– Kenneth T. White, 90, of Independence, IA died Sunday, January 6, 2019 at Prarie Hills Assisted Living Center in Independence, IA.

He was born on January 19, 1928 in Salem, IA the son of Roy and Ruth (Sampson) White. He was raised on the family farm in rural Salem, IA and attended Elementary School in Salem, IA and was a 1946 graduate of Mount Pleasant High School. He married his High School Sweet Heart, Mary Ellen Morehouse in November of 1949 in Swedesburg, IA. They made their home in Independence, IA, where Kenneth worked as a Surveyor for the Soil Conservation Service for many years. He later worked as a Drainage Engineer for Mason City Brick & Tile Co. and Diller Tile Co. out of Illinois. He enjoyed volunteering and was an active member of the Independence Jaycees and of the Wapsipinicon Golf Club.

Kenneth loved to spend time outdoors. In his younger years he would go camping with his friends often. Later in life he and Mary loved to travel throughout the United States in their motorhome and they spent the Iowa winters living in Bullhead City, AZ. But most of all he loved socializing, having parties, playing cards, and spending time with friends and family.

He is survived by his wife Mary E.
