Adaline White Obituary

"There is work still waiting for you, So you must not idly stand; Do it now, while life remaineth-- Then you shall rest in Jesus' land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call your name ; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, Oh, the joy to see you once again"

Mother Adaline Green Riley-White was born on June 20, 1939 in Ritter, South Carolina to the late Johnnie and Ealise Green. She was the fourth of six children and the last to earn her wings. As a little girl she attended Ritter Elementary School. It was not until their dad sent for his family, after finding better employment in New York that she moved to Bronx, New York at an
early age.


As a youth she attended and graduated from the New York Public School System. She was a graduate of Jane Adams where she earned her Cosmetology License and was a Notary Public. Adaline was employed with Tempositions Inc. for many years until her retirement. On October 20, 1959, she became a young bride at the age of 20 when she married Thomas Ree Riley, Sr. From this union two sons were born, the late Thomas “Seeky”Ree Riley, Jr. and Mark Anthony Riley. Adaline was known for her excellent sewing skills and loved to decorate. She was a no- nonsense woman, a trait she inherited from her mother. Adaline was known for her classy ways and style of dress. She loved to entertain people in her home and travel with her best friend Phyllis “Toote”. To some she was “Lady Adaline” or “Auntie”, and others “Granny, a special “Mom” who was loved by all. However, to Harold she will always be “Addie”.


On November 16,2001, she wed Harold White of Bronx, New York. They were seeking a place to enjoy their retirement, so they settled on their home state of South Carolina. Together they joined Faith Church in Walterboro South Carolina where she was a faithful member until her health failed. On February 9th, 2024, dear Adaline got her wings and went to walk with the
angels. She passed away peacefully in her sleep with her faithful husband, Harold at her side.
