Lucinda Ann Malone was born on January 12, 1962 in Wiesbaden, Germany to Mark and Elodia Schirato. After a courageous battle with brain cancer, she passed away on June 13, 2021, surrounded by loved ones. She was preceded in death by her father, Mark Schirato.
She is survived by her husband, Troy White; son Caleb Malone, his wife, Bethany Malone and their daughters Madeleine, Penelope, and Lucille; son Joel Malone, his wife, Laura Malone and their children Mickey and Joanie; and daughter, Hope Eichberger, her husband, Hunter Eichberger and their son Elijah; stepson, Troy White Jr.; stepdaughter Brooke Miller, her husband Brad Miller and their children Braxeton, Brody, and Braelynn; stepdaughter Nicole White and her son, Langdon; mother, Elodia Schirato; sister, Lisa Schirato; brother, Mark Schirato and his children, Victoria and Dylan; sister, Linda Allen, her husband, David Allen and their daughters Annelise and Annslee-Hope; countless aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
She made Texas her home for many years. She went to Texas Woman’s University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in Occupational Therapy. She considered her work as an occupational therapist for Garland Independent School District to be the “best job in the world” because it allowed her to work with special needs students and spend the summers and holidays with her family. She loved spending time with her nieces and watching them grow up. When she had her first grandchild, she dedicated herself to being a devoted “Gigi” and the grandchildren came one right after another. She was a lifelong reader and would say “I will read anything as long as it’s true.” She also enjoyed gardening and working at Methodist Richardson Medical Center. When she became ill, she would read her Bible and write Bible trivia questions for Hunter, her son-in-law.
In lieu of flowers, Lucinda requested that donations be made to G.I.S.D. Special Olympics.
