First Lady Lataiya R. White "Tai" Resident of Lubbock

Sister Lataiya Racquel “Lady Tai” White

Lady Lataiya White was born in the great state of Alabama on April 9, 1985. She is a proud part of the rich West Blocton High School heritage. She came to the Lord at an early age and was baptized near her childhood home at Liberty Baptist Church of West Blocton, Alabama. It was there that she was taught the great hymns of the church and how to pray. She met the love of her life, Pastor Michael White, II, and soon they were joined together in matrimonial bliss on June 16, 2017. They were inseparable. Her entrepreneurial successes are legendary to anyone who has ever tasted her famous White House Cuisine. She was a football fanatic, often seen supporting her three favorite teams: Monterey High School, the Alabama University, and the Dallas Cowboys. She was proud to have seen two of her boys receive scholarships to play football at the collegiate level. Laterrien McCullough (Waylan Baptist University), and Trenton White (West Point Academy). She was a Hospitality aficionado, décor queen, the life of the party, five-star chef, and anointed singer, intercessory prayer warrior, First Lady of Pilgrim Baptist Church, mother, wife, and friend. By the sovereign hand of the Lord, Lady White succumbed peacefully to a short illness on September 13, 2021. She leaves to cherish her memory, her loving husband, Pastor Michael White, II, nine children: Nytalia White (Henry), Laterrien McCullough, TyQuarian McCullough, Trenton White, Ty’rejuana McCullough, Michael White, III, Zy’rejuana McCullough, David White, and Stephanie McCullough. Her life will forever be celebrated by her father Dan Snelson, twin siblings: Chance and Cherish McCullough; two sisters: La’Shonta McCullough, and Vivian Anderson (Caddis); two brothers: Scottie Snelson, and Marcus Snelson, and a host of aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends. She was preceded in death by her mother, Janet Snelson. May her soul forever rest in her redeemer. Amen.

My deepest condolences are extended to Rev. White, the children of First Lady Tai, and other family members and friends. I never met First Lady Tai, but I heard her speak and felt her spirit on the prayer line. My hope and prayer is that in time the memory of this dearly beloved woman of God will comfort and give you peace. Continue to look to God for strength to sustain you during this time.
