Dina Doris White- Butler, of San Antonio, TX, in the presence of loved ones, passed from this life on the morning of Friday, October 9, 2020, at the age of 59.
Dina is survived by her siblings: Michael White of Paris, TX, Marcus White of Fort Worth, TX, Alice Webb, Mary Davis and Connie Moore- all of Paris, TX. She is preceded in death by her parents and husband, Darryl Butler.
Dina was born on January 18, 1961 in Clarksville, TX to Fannie Ione White and Donald Eugene White. She was a 1979 graduate of Delmar High School. After high school, she went to work as a radiology transporter at Paris Regional Rehabilitation. She also worked as a Girl Scout Counselor and childcare provider. In the fall of 1985, Dina enrolled at Paris Junior College to study nursing; she became an LVN in June of 1987. With plans that included a future in the city, Dina packed her bags and moved to San Antonio, TX where she continued her education at Baptist School of Nursing. Dina became a Registered Nurse in December of 1990 and worked as an RN for 30 years.
Dina found true love and married her soulmate, Darryl Butler. The couple enjoyed each other’s company and cherished their union until the Lord called Mr. Butler into his Heavenly Kingdom just seven months into their marriage.
As the oldest child, Dina had her share of parenting and vowed to love children as long as she could send them back home to their parents. She enjoyed holidays and summer vacations spent with nephews and nieces: Justin Webb, Jerrica Liggins, Jeremy Moore and most recently with Keshawn, Mia, Jordan and Jacoby.
Friends who will miss Dina’s smile and outgoing spirit include Cheryl Kastner, her son Gibson and Michelle (Joe) Ortiz Guilliam- all of San Antonio, TX.
