Wendy S. White, 63, of Rossie died Monday, May 1, 2023 at Upstate University Medical Center, Syracuse with her husband at her side, ending her courageous battle with cancer. She was little but she was mighty, and she gave it everything she had.
Wendy was born May 6, 1959 in Massena, a daughter of Wayne and Shirley (Leroux) Lashomb. She graduated from Massena High School and from Canton ATC. Wendy worked previously for Colton-Pierrepont and Parishville Schools in the business office and retired as the Business Manager at Lisbon Central School in 2020. She was married to Douglas W. White on May 21, 2009 at their home in Rossie. Wendy enjoyed reading (including cookbooks), cooking, grocery stores, gardening, spending time at her “Lakehouse” at Hickory Lake and loved her dogs Molly and Dixie. She was especially known for her cooking, and her dishes made Doug popular wherever he worked.
In addition to Doug, she is survived by a son, Tyler Mayer, her parents Wayne and Shirley Lashomb, sisters Vicky (Henry) Morrissette and Kristy Adams, and brother Jeff Lashomb. Also surviving are step-children Stacey (Brian) McCormick and Adam White (Stephanie Saddler) and grandson, Alex McCormick.
