It is with sadness that the family of Cora White announces her passing on November 28, 2023 at the Regional Hospital in Campbellton, New Brunswick. She was born on September 1, 1929 in McDonalds Corners, Ontario, the only child of the late Cora Campbell and John White. She is predeceased by William (Bill) Garrett (her husband of 40 years) as well as Ron Champagne (son-in-law) and Violet Harrison (daughter-in-law).
Cora is survived by her husband Leslie Coull who she married in 2003.
She is fondly remembered by her children: Shirley (Peter), Sandy, Rick, Budd (Diane) and Mark.
Nanny was a very proud grandmother to Linda (Tim), Sandy (Marcel ) and Donna McCulloch; Dan (Isabelle) and Amanda Champagne; Larissa (Nigel), Billy and Haley Garrett; Richard, Lacey (Andy) and Robyn (Jordan) Garrett and her great-grandchildren - Jack, Peter, Hunter, Ava, Zach, Katherine, Josie, Embree, Everleigh, Murphy, Cooper, Scarlett and Julia.
She also leaves behind members of the Garrett and Coull families and many friends who have enriched her life.
Our mother will be remembered for her affection for animals - especially her childhood horse Fanny and a multitude of stray cats and dogs which she lovingly adopted. A few of her many interests – genealogy; writing poetry “William’s Fishing Boat”; Black Cape correspondent for the Gaspe SPEC ; membership in the UCW and Women’s Institute; love of country music and dancing; knitting and a volunteer at the New Richmond Boutique. Her favorite invention was the telephone which allowed her to stay connected with family and friends. Despite the years and distance, Mom never lost her attachment to her childhood home and friends in Lanark County.
An opportunity to celebrate the life of Cora White will take place in the spring / summer of 2024. Details will follow.

Cora was a wonderful, one of a kind person. I always loved talking to her, our calls were never shorter than an hour long. She never had to say how much she loved me, I knew it immediately. I'll never think of my adolescence without thinking of Cora...I'm sure she's been met on the other side by my folks and is having quite the chat with loved ones. Rest, Cora. You are missed already.
