Yolanda Yevette White of Muskogee, Oklahoma

November 10, 1956 - June 12, 2020

Ms. Yolanda White, after 64 seasons of life, "stepped over to Glory" on Friday afternoon, June 12, 2020 from Muskogee, Oklahoma.

"Lon", as she was affectionately referred to, was welcomed into the world on November 10, 1956.  Born and raised in Muskogee, she was the daughter of Bobby Myers-Dean and Ruben Ingram.  She attended Dunbar, Sadler and Muskogee High School, a proud graduate fo the Class of 1975.  

She lived a life full of love and was married to Leonard White.  Their union produced beautiful daughters, LaTasha Myers and NaTalya White along with a son, Cedric White, of Atlanta, Georgia.  Lon loved her kids, grandkids, great-grandchildren, her family and her "Day-One" friends.  She enjoyed cooking, spending time with family, listening to music, scratch offs and mingling at the casinos.  Lon had the biggest heart and would help anyone she could, even if it was just lending an ear.

She leaves to lament her passing;  her three children,  her siblings, Lovie Michelle Bates, Traci McGee, Ruby McGee, Mitchell Myers, Harry Roberts and Stacy McGee, all of Muskogee, Oklahoma;  her loving grandchildren to continue her legacy;  Raven Myers [the first], Akiya Myers, Chris Houff, NaTovya White, Thailand White, Deon White, Cedric Jr., Jordan [Korea ], Alexis, Jeremiah and Dallas; her great-grandchildren, Nathena Harris, Zay'Lyn Houff and the joy of knowing another precious angel is on the way;
