“I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks.”
Barbara Scholl, 70, of Little Elm, Texas passed away Sunday, June 26, 2022, after a year and a half long battle with cancer.
She was born to the late Philip and Concetta D’Angelo on May 24, 1952, in Brooklyn, NY. The family moved to Syosset, NY, where she spent her childhood with her four siblings and many cousins. She graduated from Syosset High School in 1970.
She was married to Raymond M. White in 1998. Barb, as she preferred to be called, is survived by her husband, Ray, and five children: Tiffany Hayworth (Scott), Tonya Howard (Brandon), Cassie Ljutic, Mark-Anthony Brossoit, and Taylor White. She leaves behind 10 grandchildren whom she adored: Kristina, Jacob, Emma, Kristian, Jaxon, Jayse, Filip, Olivia, Preston, and Marley; two sisters, Carol Kerrigan (Kevin) and Beth Cecere (Michael) along with many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Barb is preceded in death by both her parents and her brothers, Philip D’Angelo, Jr and James D’Angelo.
Barb was a nature loving, free spirited hippie yet oddly obsessed with time and the news. In her down time, she would watch true crime series on TV. She loved to be outside and if the weather was good, she’d be sitting on her patio watching the birds and squirrels. If there was a pool nearby, she would dip her feet in, but it had to be well over 90 degrees for her to get in to swim! She always felt a connection to the Native American culture and wondered if her soul had ever lived during that time. She decorated her personal space with dream catchers, artifacts, artwork depicting wolves and earthy colors because of her love of the culture and nature.
Barbara was a nurturer by nature, and she offered her home to family, friends and coworkers looking for a place to stay. She was kind, caring and giving and would go without so others could have. Her love and kindness also extended to animals. She loved her pet birds and her dogs: Ollie, Gizmo, Duke (the adopted neighbor dog) and of course, her beloved Puppy.
She was an amazing cook (those meatballs and chicken cutlets! Yum!) but baking was not her forte and it became a joke amongst her and the kids, literally laughing until we cried. We never could figure out how such a great cook could burn everything she tried to bake! However, every year around Christmas time she wanted to bake cookies, a tradition passed down from her mom. So, while her daughters baked, she taste-tested and approved!
There will not be an immediate service. A memorial is being planned and will be available online so that distant family and friends can participate. As soon as a date is set the family will notify via phone and social media. If you have any stories, videos or pictures you would like to be included you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
