DORIS AND FOREST MOCK (By Dr. and Mrs. Nghia Truong)   Doris (Ma Mock) and Forest (Papa Mock) Mock lived long, happy and purposeful lives.  Not having children of their own, they became duly Godparents to our three children.  For the last 17 years, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Halloween were spent in the Mock’s den, with stories and laughter shared over homemade sandwiches and the best Bundt cakes ever.  Education was always important to Forest and Doris.  Even at the age of 95 in her last fragile week, Ma Mock managed to cut out the Whitehouse High School Honor Roll listing from the newspaper to share with our kids and impart words of encouragement for them to continually succeed in all that they do. The lives of Ma Mock and Papa Mock will always be celebrated.

BILLIE PARKER FRENCH (Dale Woody, Betty & Larry Lough) retired in 1992 from Whitehouse Independent School District.  She taught middle school English for 27 years, 22 of them  in Whitehouse.  Mrs. French graduated from East Texas State Teacher's College in 1950 and also taught in Commerce, Hawkins, Dallas and Tyler.  We are honored that her family chose to have the WISD Education Foundation as the charity of choice for memorial donations.  To make a donation in her memory, please go to our Donate Now tab above or follow this link:

JOYCE SLOAN(By Randy and Tara Nowlin):  In honor of one of the most beautiful souls to grace the earth, Joyce Sloan brought sunshine and joy to everyone she encountered and gave the gift of unconditional love to her daughters and grandchildren.  She inspired children to learn by helping them believe that nothing was out of their reach.  She loved the quote, "If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." Her legacy of love for children and their education will continue for generations to come.​
