Judith passed away peacefully at home in West Valley City, UT surrounded by her family whom she loved with all her heart on August 10, 2022 at the age of 77. In March of 2020, Judith was diagnosed with AML. She courageously fought the disease for 2 1/2 years, always knowing the cancer was treatable but not curable.
Judith was born September 24, 1944, in Panguitch, UT to Lorena Goulding and Horace Garn Roundy. She was the 7th of 12 Children. Judith grew up in the small town of Alton, UT where she attended elementary school at the little schoolhouse right across the street from her home. Her high school years were spent at Valley High School in Orderville, UT where her entire graduating class of 1962 had a total of 17 students. Judith left home after graduation to attend college. She moved to Salt Lake and lived with family so she could go to beauty school.
While in Salt Lake, Judith met and married Sherman Brent White on October 7, 1964. Later the marriage was solemnized in the St. George temple. They started a family and had seven beautiful children. They made their home in West Valley City, UT. This October they would have celebrated 58 years together. Judith served those around her through her various church callings and volunteering at school and other civic activities. Many will fondly remember her as their neighborhood hairstylist and hometown Halloween “queen”.
After raising her children, Judith had a successful career with WPMA where she worked her way up from the mailroom to the position of Executive Assistant and Tradeshow Coordinator. She accomplished many great things throughout her career and built many meaningful relationships which she treasured. After her retirement, the association honored her as the second woman ever to be inducted into their Hall of Fame, an honor she never expected but was truly humbled to be held in such high regard.
Judith is survived by her husband Sherman Brent White; children Shirl (Debbie) White, Sharon (Duane) Gansereit, Mark (Kim) White, Martin (Tammy) White, Chameill (Alex) Lamb, and Brenda (Nathan) Shimoda; 17 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her baby girl Jeannie White, her parents Horace and Lorena Roundy, and siblings Florence Willard, Vern Roundy, and Rayda Roundy.
Family viewing will be held Monday, August 15, 2022, at 11:00 A.M. at the Alton, UT chapel. Burial will follow at the Alton Cemetery at noon.
Memorial service will be Saturday, August 27, 2022, at 11:00 A.M. at the Copperhill Third Ward 6755 W 3800 S WVC, UT.
The family wishes to give special thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Loveland Clinic at LDS Hospital and Symbii Hospice Co.
The only thing mom ever wanted in life was to be a wife and a mother. She was a simple woman and always got right to the point. In her exact words, quote “She lived, she loved the Lord and her family, she died!”
She was always a lady. Left a room with everyone there felt her love.
She will always be remembered as a kind and compassionate lady. I love her. I admire her. She can now watch over her loved ones. See you later Judy
Judy was a wonderful beautiful soul. A great neighbor to my mom(Noma Edwards) and sister(IrvaRene Davis). My sis IrvaRene was best friends with Judy. I know there is a Big reunion in Heaven between those two. ❤️ I just want to send my deepest condolences and prayers to Brent and family. I am so sorry and my heart aches for you. I live in Iowa and won’t be able to be there for the funeral but know I am there in spirit. May God Bless your hurting hearts and walk along side you during this stressful time. 🙏
Judy will be missed by many. She was a very loving and caring person. I’m so glad I got to know her. We did a lot of things together with Orchard Elementary School ‘s PTA when our
children were little. She is now your guardian angel watching over her family.
I’m soo sad to hear this- she is truly an elite woman- I know she and mom are having a grand time together- much love to you all
I will always have a spot on my heart for this beautiful soul who permed my hair and haunted us all on Halloween she was always like a second mom keeping eyes on us all as we played in the streets. Truly one of the best.
Judy is an amazing lady that will be missed by so many. We extend our sincere condolences to Brent and all of the family. We are grateful to have been able to be in the ward and neighborhood for 11 years with the Judy and Brent and are so grateful for their influence and friendship.

Oh my Judy friend. You will be missed. When we moved into the neighborhood she was one of the first people we were introduced to and were told we’d never meet a more wonderful giving person. Boy were they right!! What great friend we became!! You will be missed. I can’t imagine this world without you. But what a great reunion she is having. Our heart goes out to you her family.
Love Bonnie and Oscar Garcia and family
Your mom was an angel on earth to me. I can’t I agains how lucky you have all been. She’s missed already!
What a marvelous human-being!! Judith was such a joy to be around. She had a smile that could brighten any room, and laughter that was contagious!
She was extremely capable & efficient at everything she attempted, and her humanity was unparalleled! I know that she will be missed by all of the people that had the good fortune to come into contact with her! Benny & Mary Ellen Hodges
Judith’s family and co-workers will understand this: I think Judith got a big smile on her face in the next life because I was able to call and talk to her husband and daughter shortly after her passing, but her other ‘Boyfriend,’ Mark L. Walker, was not able to!!
It was easy to love Judith because she exuded happiness, love and acceptance. This world is worse off without her.
May He bless her big and loving family!
The first thing I thought of after hearing of her passing was how happy Fontella is to be able to help greet her dear friend on the other side. I’m so jealous that I can’t hear all the laughing they’re sharing. I loved Judy and her great family. I’ll always remember her Primary apron with the many pockets and what a terrific music chorister she was. The Ward won’t be the same without her! God bless the White family!
A grand lady a special friend who ran WPMA tradeshows with a firm but steady hand. I will never forget how she took charge of Nevada’s first Big Dogs bowling event…Miss you Judith
I love Judith!! I worked with her for several years and loved hanging out with her at all the state conventions. Judith and I would play the penny slots for hours.
Sending love and comfort to her family that she loved so much.
