This site is dedicated to Kristen White.

Kristen Ruth Goode White, age 51, of Bowling Green, KY passed away Tuesday, January 10, 2012 after a four year battle with cancer. She participated in various research trials that continue to benefit many living with the same cancer.

She was born to Frances and the late Robert Goode, July 4, 1960, in Indianapolis, IN. After graduating from Ball State University, Kristen built a successful and rewarding career in finance while living in Indianapolis, IN and later Columbus, OH. Kristen then married the late Paul Pegg, with whom she had her beautiful daughter, Kaitlin Pegg.

In 2000 she married Jack White, working alongside him while they expanded their family business, Simply Mulch, along with numerous other business endeavors. Kristen loved spending time on their farm with all her animals and at their vacation home in Ft. Meyers, FL. Kristen, Jack and their girls enjoyed traveling abroad, including many white, sandy beaches. Kristen loved life every day and lived it to the fullest. She was a beloved wife, mother and dear friend to many. She will be greatly missed.

Kristen is survived by her husband, Jack White; daughters, Kaitlin Pegg, Callie (Chris) Gerhardt, Katie Drake and granddaughter Fiona Drake; mother, Frances Goode; six siblings, Michal Goode (Tom CarMichael), Andrea (Malcom) Frost, Joe (Jodi) Goode, Abbe (Dodd) Gray, David (Lisa) Goode, Josh (Heather) Goode and nine nieces and nephews.

Kristen was one of the best people I've ever known and a great friend in those days of youth...We were so comfortable with each other and shared the same sense of humor, fun and frolic...Great memories including sleeping outside overnight and running around the neighborhood till dawn...and she could make me laugh...some of the best times of my life were spent with my friend. We all lose touch, but I have never forgetten her wonderful spirit and friendship. I am in no way surprised she was such a wonderful inspiration and touched so many people in her life. GodSpeed my friend. Kristi

I met Kristen while she was participating in one of the clinical trials. She was an amazing patient, and a wonderful person (Dr. P. thought so too!) She was a tough cookie and it was an honor to have known her and Jack. She was an inspiration to others. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

~I am standing on the seashore. A ship sails to the morning breeze and starts for the ocean. She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her till at last she fades on the horizon, and someone at my side says, "She is gone." Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all; she is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when I saw her, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.

The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her; and just at the moment when someone at my side says, "She is gone," there are others who are watching her coming,and other voices take up the glad shout, "There she comes!"~

Kristen was a wonderful woman that I had the opportunity to spend time with on trips with Kaitlin. I was truly blessed to know such a caring person. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.

When i was 15 aunt Kristen called me and told me you have no choice to be an adult now. Your going to become a teen mom, and it's up to you to to do what is right for you. it is in your hands and gods now. I was so thankful she talked me through one of the hardest times in my life. and i am thankful for her kind words cause i wouldnt have changed my choices now for anything in the world. Now aunt Kristen you are in Gods arms. love and never forgotten.

"Today is a day I would have talked to Krissy more than once. She was a texting fool and we would have text each other today, even if it was one word or a silly picture. I am missing my sister/friend today. I love you Krissy"
