Sylvia Pearl White, 101 of Avon, Indiana, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at Avon Health and Rehabilitation.  Sylvia was born on November 20, 1918 in Butler County, Kentucky to Jodie and Glennie (Tanner) Bobbett.  Sylvia was a loving homemaker and enjoyed traveling with her husband, Lindell.  After retirement, she watched her nieces and nephews when needed.  She cared for three generations of family, taking the children to and from dance recitals and sports and always making sure they were well-fed.  She always made a dessert, like her famous peach cobbler or apple pie, and she always had the candy dish full.  She retired from Standard Grocery Store and was a resident of Avon Health and Rehabilitation for over twenty years.  Sylvia attended Fountain Square Christian Church and she was a beautiful lady inside and out.  She was beloved by all who knew her. 

In addition to her parents, Sylvia was preceded in death by her husband, Lindell White; her brother, Hollis Bobbett; her sisters, Alma McGee, Loraine Vicous, and Mineon Wright; and her half-sister, Thelma Deel.  

Sylvia is survived by her half-sister, Evelyn Deel; many nieces and nephews; as well as many great-nieces and great-nephews.

A small private family graveside service will be held for Sylvia in Fairview Cemetery in Bowling Green, Kentucky at a later date.
