ANITA TRAHAN-WHITEADDISON and ACTON – It is with heavy heart and great sadness that the family of Anita Trahan-White announces the passing of our mother, June 4, 2012. Our mom was born Jan. 11, 1939, in Jonesport, to Roland "Tommy" Beal and Charlene (Faulkingham) Beal.When Mom was in her teens, her parents moved to Killingly, Conn., with her and her siblings. It was in Killingly, Conn., that Mom met a handsome Navy man named Richard "Choo" Armand Trahan and they wed Aug. 8, 1958. Together, they purchased their first home on Bailey Hill Road, Killingly, Conn., and raised four children. Mom always wanted to return to her beloved Jonesport. So, when the children were grown and Daddy retired, they purchased a "little fixer upper" on the East Side Road, Addison, and sold their home in Connecticut, where Mom and Daddy spent their days turning their house into a home. Sadly, Daddy passed away suddenly Dec. 28, 1992, just one year after they had moved to Addison, and Mom was left on her own. A few years later, Mom caught the eye of a gentleman, who courted her for several years. In 2009, Mom and Roland were married and they spent four wonderful years together.Anita is survived by her second husband, Roland White; mother, Charlene Beal Wagner; son, Richard Trahan of Florida; daughters, Trenda Trahan-Kinney and spouse, Peter, and Faylene Trahan-Tiffany and spouse, Philip; and brother, Roland "Bo" Beal and spouse, Penny.
