Pat was born on December 11, 1940, in Buncombe County, NC, to the late Emory Wimberly and Margaret Evelyn Ballard Wimberly.

She was a member of Swannanoa Church of God and after her retirement, she attended faithfully, the East Black Mountain Free Will Baptist Church in Black Mountain.

Pat was a faithful and devoted Pastor’s wife. Alongside her husband, they pastored at Alarka, Sylva, North Wilkesboro, Burnsville, Swannanoa, and Barnardsville Church of God. She worked in the office at Beacon Manufacturing in Swannanoa, and at Avondale in Burnsville, in the 1980’s, and retired from Wal Mart as a sales associate in the Toy Department in 2005.

She was a kind soul who just loved people. Most of all, she loved the Lord with all of her heart and served Him faithfully every single day. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. Pat loved her family deeply and her children and grandchildren brought her tremendous joy. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

In addition to her parents, Pat was preceded in death by her beloved husband, O. H. Mack White (2023); and three sisters, Peggy Marie Wimberly, Barbara Holder and Sandy Kilpatrick.
