Obituary for Alvin E. White

Alvin Edward White, beloved husband of Helen (Harper) White, of Glenbeulah, formerly of Evanston, IL, went to eternal rest on January 2, 2018.

Al and Helen exemplified a truly Christo-centered marriage, receiving instruction in the faith from Fr. Gerald Weber, they went on to raise 10 children, while being Co-Presidents of CFM, in Cook County, Il., and champions for civil rights, the homeless, and civic duty.

Retiring to Sheboygan County, together they delivered Meals on Wheels, tutored in reading for both inmates at Kettle Moraine Prison and second graders at Glenbeulah-Elkhart Lake Elementary school. When not attending grandchildren's recitals, birthday parties, plays, science fairs, or sporting events, they enjoyed their retirement years "on golden pond", in the company of "breakfast club" friends, attending bible studies, and daily reception of the Blessed Sacrament.

Survived by nine of his ten children Kevin (Geraldine) Chicago, Mary (Mark) New Holstein, Michael, Chicago, Thomas, Glenview, John (Bonnie) Niobrara National Preserve, Sarah (David) Stoughton, Paul (Laurie) Denver, Brian (Sarah) Chicago, Carolyn (Matt) Chicago; son-in-law: Peter Katsaros,31 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. He is further survived by one sister-in-law: Elizabeth Jean Harper of Skokie, IL, and numerous cousins.
Alvin was preceded in death by his wife Helen, to whom he was devoted in marriage for 63 years; his parents: Elmer and Natalia White, his in-laws: Milton Dewey and Mattie Jean (Badger) Harper, his daughter: Elizabeth Jean (White) Katsaros and two little angels he finally gets to meet.
