Annita Mae (Estep) White, 75, of Hermitage, TN, passed away on June 28, 2023. She was born on May 20, 1948, in Sparta, MO, to Loyd and Velma Estep. Annita was a kind and thoughtful individual who always stepped up to help others in their time of need. She was known for her selflessness and putting the needs of others above her own.

Annita is survived by her loving husband, Dr. Allen “Doc” White and her children: Lori (Tim) Hull, Cari (David) Richards, Heather Fishpaw, Keri (David) Heath, Kory (Jennifer) Allen, Stephen White, Aaron (Rolanda) White, and Theodore White. Annita was also a cherished grandmother to Matthew (Christina) Hull, Melissa (Zack) Huber, Rachel Ehrmann, Daniel Ehrmann, Bailee White, Christian Hull, Naomi White, Devin Allen, Brooke Allen, and great-grandmother to Shiloh Johns, Emma Huber, Liam Huber, Isaac Patrom, and Landon Johnson. She is also survived by her brothers: Gerald Estep, Robert Estep, Lyman (Carol) Estep, and several nieces and nephews. Annita was preceded in death by her parents, Loyd and Velma Estep, as well as her sisters, Loretta Spurgeon and Jeanette Haskins. She had a special place in the hearts of her extended family and many friends.

In her early adulthood, Annita co-owned a custom furniture manufacturing business, where she excelled at sewing work. She later worked alongside her husband, Doc, as the office administrator in their chiropractic offices. Annita became certified as a thermography technician for the office. In addition to their chiropractic practice, Annita and Doc owned an AirMaster franchise for a few years after moving to the Nashville, TN area in 1988. During her time as a homeschooling parent, Annita taught sewing classes to many students and for a short time served as a director of a homeschool co-op. In recent years, she ran a residential cleaning service, providing part-time job opportunities for several individuals. She also took pride in sharing the benefits of Gia Wellness and other health-related products over the years.

Annita found great joy in serving at several preteen and teen church camps, where she expanded her church family. She was a beloved member of the Church of God, a Worldwide Association.
