Obituary of Margaret Lynn White

Margaret Lynn White, 54, of Bloomingdale NJ passed away June 15, 2020.

Margaret was born in Detroit Michigan to Clifford and Dolores Philippart. For the last 28 years, Margaret has resided in Bloomingdale with her husband Eric, where they raised their children Robert and Evin.

Margaret was both a hard worker and a devoted mother. She treasured her children and supported them, especially in their extracurricular activities.  Whether it was aiding in the Bloomingdale playground committee or when they took fencing or stage crew. She was notorious for her famous themed birthday parties, graduation parties, boat parties or any party for that matter. You would never know what Margaret would come up with. Themes would range from pirate ships to medieval castle to military combat zone. She would put in the extra effort in making sure everything worked together and everyone would have a wonderful time. With 911 on speed dial, just in case a kid had too much fun. She was the life of the party and adventurous.


She enjoyed shopping and spending quality time with her sisters, mother or friends. She had a bright outlook and a positive personality. Her high spirits shined through her family and close friends.

Margaret loved traveling, no matter where she and Eric would go. She was an avid scuba diver, which she enjoyed the most while vacationing. They didn’t have a specific favorite destination but the most special would have to be their last trip for their 29th anniversary to the beautiful Cayman Islands.

Margaret is survived by her loving husband Eric; her children Robert Andrew White and Evin Thomas White; her sisters Julie Philippart and Cathy Campbell; her brothers Steven and Robert Philippart; and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held privately by the family. In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to American Cancer Society.
