Della White Pressley

June 5, 1936 — April 6, 2023

Powell

 

Della White Pressley went to her eternal home in Heaven with her Lord and Savior on April 6, 2023 at the age of 86. She was married to her wonderful husband, the late Ralph Pressley, for 68 years. She is preceded in death by her husband Ralph, her son Danny Pressley, her parents Elmer and Rachel White, her siblings Hazel DeFoe, Wilma Perry, Charles White and her sister-in-law Mary Pressley.
 
She will forever be loved and remembered by her family: Daughter Lisa Cupp and husband Sammie, Daughter-in-law Ann Pressley (Danny); Grandchildren: LeAnne (TJ), Julie, Matthew (Morgan), and Lindsey (Derek); Great-grandchildren: Brad, Brayden, Ethan, Kipton, Samuel, Levi, Kreston, Reid, Rachel, and Pressley; Brother Albert White (Ellen) and brother-in-law Rev. George Pressley; and many nieces, nephews, family members and friends.
 
Della met the love of her life and they were married on January 31, 1953. In her younger years she owned and operated a restaurant. She continued her love and talents by baking and decorating cakes for birthdays, weddings and more. She had a love for birds, her favorites being the bluebird and the hummingbird. She loved to join family and friends on vacation trips and always made them so special. She was an avid fan of all her grandchildren and their activities. Her love and support to family and friends was a precious blessing. As a member of North Knoxville Church of God she was part of the choir and loved to teach her children's church class for many years. She kept a notebook for any friends or family in need of prayer and she faithfully raised them up during her prayer time. Her advice and wisdom given to each of us through God's love and Word have taught us many lessons and left a true legacy to follow. 
 
The family will receive friends Wednesday, April 12, 2023 from 5:00-7:00 pm at Mynatt Funeral Home Halls Chapel with a Celebration of Life to follow at 7:00 pm with Mark George officiating; Honorary Minister Rev. George Pressley. Family and friends will meet at 10:15 am at Mynatt Funeral Home Halls Chapel on Thursday, April 13, 2023 to proceed to Greenwood Cemetery for an 11:00 am interment.
