Mary "Happy" White Dies
She was the founder of the former Happy White Gallery, a past president of the Green Fingers Garden Club, a member of the New York Junior League, and also a board member of the RI Philharmonic. She received philanthropic awards from Woman & Infants Hospital and the American Red Cross for her support of those organizations. Johnson & Wales University also honored her for her contributions to the school with the Happy White Garden.
In 2007, Johnny White dedicated a new 60,000-sq.-ft. addition to Taco’s Cranston, RI, manufacturing facility. In a program handout, he credited his parents with “having created a solid foundation from which we have based our growth and success.” The new warehousing and shipping addition was dedicated to his parents, John Sr. and Mary.
