Memorial for Grace White on Saturday

-A +A
A celebration of Grace White’s life will be held Saturday at the Colfax Veterans Memorial Hall, 22 Sunset Circle. The community potluck will begin at noon. Friends are invited to bring food and memories to share. Women Who Kick Comedy Butt founder and comedian, White, 59, lost her battle with long cancer on Dec. 3, 2009. In November 2007, the longtime Colfax resident had been given three months to live after doctors diagnosed Stage 4 inoperable lung cancer. Unwilling to sit on the sidelines, White devoted the next two years to working with the American Lung Association and the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation to raise awareness about the devastating effects of lung cancer as well as to find treatments and early detection methods. -- Gloria Beverage
