Hollis Carol White

Hollis Carol White, 73, departed this life on Monday, April 8, 2019.

She was born August 1, 1945 in Urania to the union of Sylvia Mae Pendarvis and Hollis Mixon White.

Carol was raised in Tullos, but moved to Olla after marriage and resided there most of her life.

She was named for her father, Hollis, who was still serving overseas when she was born. Hollis was a masculine name, but her mother determined to name the child after her father in honor of his service and the possibility he might not return from war.

Carol was a very unique individual, strong and feisty, but also sweet and caring. She loved being a mother and was proud of her children and grandchildren. She was a child of the 50’s and 60’s, and loved the music from that era.

Carol left a strong impression on people, and will be fondly remembered by many. Sail on silver girl.
