Freda Manning White of Hartwell, Georgia, lost her three year battle with the consequences of lung cancer on April 25, 2014. She is survived by her long time best friend and roommate W. Taylor Moore, of Hartwell, Georgia, and her sister, Joyce M. Sipsy (David) of Cedar Bluff, Alabama. She was also close to and deeply loved by Taylor’s children, Debbie Carlisle (Steve) of Woodstock, Georgia and Angie Matthiessen (Britt) of Punta Gorda, Florida, as well as their children, John S. Carlisle, Jeremy T. Carlisle and Leah M. Matthiessen. She was born April 17, 1953 in Smyrna, Georgia to Knox and Lois Manning, who predeceased her. She attended and graduated from Wills High School in Smyrna, Georgia, Reinhardt University in Waleska, Georgia, and Woodrow Wilson Law School in Atlanta, Georgia. Although she received her law degree she never practiced law but chose a career in Real Estate. She was a hard worker and worked as a dental assistant and in a florist shop while pursuing her education. She loved sports and was the first female to be certified as a Referee in all sports by the Georgia High School Athletic Association. She moved to Florida with her first husband and spent time in Citrus County before coming to Franklin County, Florida. She was active in local politics and served as poll worker for many years. She viewed her greatest achievement as helping Eddie Clark of Dallas, Texas, develop and build the St. James Bay Golf Course Community located three miles East of Carrabelle, Florida. She was a very generous person and would help anyone with anything at any time. She also enjoyed her trips to Costa Rica for sun, fun and fishing. She desired that there be no service and has donated her remains to the Georgia Regents University in furtherance of medical research. The family requests no flowers but if anyone wishes to send a donation to The First Tee in her honor it would be appreciated. The First Tee, 425 S. Legacy Trail, St. Augustine, FL 32092.
