ARKPORT-Sue Ann White, 77, passed away late Sunday evening (Aug. 23, 2020), with her family by her side, at her home at 13 Northridge, after a short illness.

Born in Hornell on Dec. 1, 1942, she was a daughter of the late Howard and Hester (Lawrence) White. Besides her parents, she was also predeceased by her stepfather, Morris Shepard and her brother-in-law, John McCarthy.

A former resident of Hornell, Sue has resided at her home in Arkport since 1989 and for many years she and her family spent the summer months at their cottage on Loon Lake.

She was a graduate of Hornell High School, class of 1960 and also attended Alfred State College. In 1961 she began her 54-year career with George Steiner Public Accounting in Hornell and continued with EFP Rotenberg Accounting as office manager before she retired. Her most important roles were caring for her mother and being an aunt to her beloved nieces and nephews and their families.

Sue loved Christmas, flowers, tax season and especially loved to attend the activities and sporting events of her nieces and nephews.

Her loving family includes her sister, Sally McCarthy of Joppa, Md.; her brother, Howard Thomas (Wanda) White of Hornell; seven nieces and nephews, Shawn (Lisa) McCarthy of Newport News, Va., John Joseph “JJ” McCarthy of Ashburn, Va., Brett (Danielle) White of Hornell, Brian McCarthy of Joppa, Md., Taryn (James) Manuele of Orange, Conn., Jay (Sharon) Krisher of White Marsh, Md., and Michelle Boarder of Hornell; 12 great nieces and nephews, Mariah (Zach) Jones, Connor, Bailey and Addison McCarthy, Jackson, Ava and Ella White, Gianna and Claudia Manuele, Alexis Boarder and Sam and Alex Krisher; her beloved shih tzu, Trixie; as well as several cousins.

  1. The White Family, So sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. I had known her for many years as she helped me with book keeping for the former Big Elms Restaurant. Later years serving Sue and her Mom at Club 57. My thoughts and Prayers are with you all. Sue was definitely an inspiration and will be sadly missed by her family.

  2. I am sorry to hear of Sue’s passing. She so enjoyed life, children and grandchildren. Over the years I visited Heather and Sue often in Arkport. Our family connection is through Morris Shepard Jr, my second cousin. Sue’s life is a celebration. Condolences to your whole family.

  3. Sue and Hester, sitting in the front row, ready for things to get going. Sue was so faithful to call whenever there was something happening, which she thought the Board would need to know to perform our duties. She was the embodiment of civic responsibility and we appreciated her participation.
