It's not unusual for an 86-year-old to be walking around a retirement home, but she's not retired.
Not even close.
"I'm not going home and sitting down," said White. "I like to work."
White doesn't live at Woodhaven. She works there, full-time, as a certified nursing assistant.
"I don't think the work is too hard," White said.
Don't let her fool you, her job isn't easy.
She cares for patients with Alzheimers. It's exhausting work, but she's done it for almost 35 years.
"She is a remarkable person," said Woodhaven's owner, David Graves, who calls White the "backbone" of his nursing staff.
"Ms. White just has a wonderful attitude," Graves said. "She has a very compassionate and giving heart."
Many of the people she cares for think of her as family.
"Some of the residents call her grandma," said Graves.
White doesn't really have a problem with that.
"Well I tell you, I'm older than some of 'em that's here!" White explained.
That's not stopping her: now or anytime soon.
"Some people like to sit down when they get to a certain age, but if you sit down, that's where you're going to sit, so you better keep going," said White.
And that's exactly what she plans to do. Avoid retirement, at the retirement home.
