Our beautiful Kerrianne passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on January 6, 2023, at Swedish Hospital in Seattle, Washington. She was born May 3, 1977, to Kenneth and LynnAnn White in Long Island, New York. She moved with her family to Olympia in July 1983. She now rests in the arms and home of our loving Father and Savior.
Kerri graduated Capital High School in 1995 and obtained an AA degree from South Puget Sound Community College. She went to work for the State of Washington for DSHS in 1999. In 2015, Kerri was instrumental in creating the centralized background check unit and began working with Children’s Administration and ultimately DCYF. She devoted herself to the success of her staff, coworkers and clients for more than 23 years. She made many wonderful friends throughout her time. A dear friend of hers made through work, Meryl, describes her perfectly as a Lovely Human and she truly is.
She cherished her family and friends above everything, and her best times were spent with those she loved. She was selfless, caring and committed to her people. She was quick witted, sometimes sarcastic (in the best way), funny and loved to sing and laugh. She had a beautiful voice. One of her favorite things to do was sing and dance with Noah in the car. She loved knowing that her sense of humor and sarcasm came directly from her daddy. She loved singing Karaoke with her sister, brother-in-law, and friends when she was younger. She loved getting her nails done and having lunch with Mom who she referred to as her “person.” She loved her niece, Sophia, and was proud that they had the same squishy kissable cheeks and contagious giggle.
Kerri was fiercely loyal and devoted to all those who graced her life. She was truly loved by those who are blessed to have had her grace theirs.
Her greatest love in life was her son, Noah Anthony. She took pride in everything he did and does.
She is survived by her son, Noah; her parents, Ken and Lynn; her sister and family, Michelle, Brian and Sophia Green; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and lifelong friends. She is also survived by her in-laws, Donna Vincent and Dienna Daugherty and family.
Her husband of 20 years, David J. Vincent, preceded Kerri in death on December 17, 2022.
A celebration of life will be announced in the near future.
