  • Annie White ('00 DVM) - May 2, 2017

    Annie WhiteAnnie White ('00 DVM) - May 2, 2017

    Annie White, age 52, died peacefully on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at University California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, CA after a courageous 4 year battle with cancer. She was born April 19, 1965, in Seattle, WA to Edmund and Meg (O'Brien) Raftis. She was a 1987 graduate of Georgetown University and received a degree from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University in 2000. 

    Annie was a force that exuded possibility and she savored every experience. Her life adventures and keen intellect were fueled at Georgetown and later Washington State University. A timeless sense of style supported her career start in fashion at Ralph Lauren, what for many would have been the pinnacle of achievement. But not for Annie. Next came veterinary school and years of caring for animals, along with learning to sail and dedicating her time to humanity with her service work in Africa. A full life by any measure. In September 2006, Annie married Carter A. White in Seattle, WA and later that year set forth on a 10-year journey with Carter when they relocated to Dublin, Ireland. On October 17, 2008, she landed the most important role of her life - becoming a mother. She poured her heart and soul into her beloved Jack. A moment with him and you can see her smile and feel her joy.

    The chapters of Annie's life read as a story of compassion and service. She lived her life heart first, acting with love and kindness always. She was incredibly fierce and brave too, embodying the kind of quiet courage others lean into. Annie faced her cancer diagnosis with a ROAR and chose an attitude of "health is not the absence of disease, but the presence of vitality." 

    Annie Raftis White...joyous, angelic, inspiring. You will be missed and forever in our hearts.

    Her memory lives on through her husband, Carter and son, Jack; father Ed Raftis of Seattle, WA; mother, Meg (Stillman Brown) Raftis of Stonington, CT; brother, Timothy (Jennifer) Raftis of Moraga, CA; sister Jeanine (Earl) Ford of Shelby, NC; and her nieces, nephew, cousins and countless friends.

    In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Annie's memory to iCan Ireland ( or the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (
