August 15, 1952 — October 31, 2019

Peggy Lee White, 67, of Siloam Springs, Arkansas passed away at her home on Thursday, October 31, 2019.

Peggy was born on August 15, 1952 in Garden City, Kansas, the daughter of William Oliver Knight and Pauline Leatherberry Knight.  She married Stephen A. White on April 24, 1993 in Lewisville. Texas.
