Athena M. White, beloved daughter of Alexis Wells and Eathyn White, gained her angel wings on Saturday, August 14, 2021, just seven short weeks after her birth.
While her time on this earth was way too short, Athena made a big impact on the lives of everyone who met her. Her face would light up whenever she heard someone talking and the smiles she brought to the faces of her family are treasures they will keep with them forever.
In addition to her parents, Athena is also survived by her grandparents, Robert & Melody White of Fenwick; Steve & Wendy Wells of Greenville; Jessica & Joe Merritt of Lakeview; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Athena was preceded in death by her Great Grandma Joyce Wells, Great Grandpa Darwin White, Great Grandma Robin Clark, and her aunt, Jessica Wells.
Funeral services for Athena are being held on Thursday, August 19th at the Simpson Family Funeral Home in Sheridan (246 S. Main St.) beginning at 1 PM with Pastor Tony Sorsen officiating. Athena will be laid to rest at Clear Lake Cemetery.
For those wanting to help the family out, please keep their needs in mind as they deal with this unexpected and sudden loss. Donation envelopes will be available at the funeral home.
