Vicki was born in Dallas, TX to Jimmie Gordon Gardner and Larry Joe Gardner on September 14, 1959.
She went to school at Sam Houston High School in Arlington, TX and attended Baylor University in Waco,
TX for one year. She married Roger Kip White on March 27th, 1982, in Arlington, TX. She later attended
Tarrant County Junior College, now Tarrant County College, where she earned a degree in nursing. She
worked as a RN at Arlington Memorial Hospital for 2 years and then dedicated the remainder of her
career serving the physical needs of children by working at Cooks Children’s Hospital for a total of 25
years. It was there where she spent most of those years in pediatric oncology and cardiac/renal care.
She enjoyed reading, doing puzzles, traveling, cross-stitching, and any form of arts and crafts. The most
important things in her life were her career, spending time with family, and her faith in Christ. She was
proud to perform a difficult job of helping sick kids, gained the most pleasure by raising her children and
grandchildren, and was most comforted knowing salvation was secure through the work of Jesus.
Vicki is preceded in death by her grandmother Dimple Gordon, grandmother Maggie Gardner,
grandfather Winford Gardner, uncle Jack Turner, and aunt Kay Turner.

White and Daria White, sister Penny Brewer, brother Greg Gardner, brother-in-law Darrell Brewer,
