Evelyn (Tress) White

May 13, 1923 - January 27, 2024


Evelyn (Tress) White, 100, of Beaver Falls, died on Saturday, January 27, 2024, at Providence Care Center, Beaver Falls.

Born on May 13, 1923, in Beaver Falls, she was the daughter of the late William and Margaret (Scott) Tress.

Evelyn spent her life as a homemaker and mother to her 8 children.  She was a member of St. Monica Church of St. Augustine Parish. Evelyn was the matriarch of the family and she shared her vivid stories and collection of pictures with all who would listen. Evelyn was the last remaining member of the Tress Family that resided on 3rd Avenue, Beaver Falls where the family had lived for over 150 years. She lived through 100 years of history in Beaver Falls and had many anecdotes of all the changes she had witnessed. Evelyn loved to laugh and enjoyed making others laugh with her wit and wry comments. Our mother Evelyn was always willing to help anyone in their time of need. She was her family’s hero because she showed no matter what age you are, you can still be young at heart!

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Andrew Walter White, Jr.; her siblings, Hilary Tress, William Tress, Richard Tress, Donald Tress, Mildred Miller, Margaret Vaupel, and Marie Matthews; and Son-in-law José Johnson.  Evelyn was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

She is survived by her children, Dennis (Kathy) White, Marilyn White, Barbara Jean (Ken) Graeser, Edward White, James White, Donna Marie (José) Johnson, Daniel (Karla) White, and Patricia (Chris) Cahalan; 15 grandchildren, Larry, Michelle, Amy, Katelyn, Andrew, Leslie, Laura, José, Andrea, Jordan, Jessica, James, Emily, Sarah, and William; 17 great grandchildren, Andrew, Evelyn, Yasin, Lucy, Eliza, Dallas, Marisol, Isabel, Charlotte, Conor, Scottie, Annabel, Matthias, David, Hank, Cruz, and Barú; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

Friends will be received on Wednesday, January 31st from 4PM until 8PM in the GABAUER-LUTTON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES, INC., Chippewa Twp., 117 Blackhawk Road, Beaver Falls.

Prayers will be offered in the funeral home on Thursday, February 1st at 9:30AM followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10AM at St. Monica Church of St. Augustine Parish, 116 Thorndale Dr., Beaver Falls.  Fr. Kim Schreck will serve as celebrant.
