First lady of the accordion fondly remembered
by Frank Gale
Star Staff Writer, Stephenville

Donald Tompkins, a native of Tompkins in the Codroy Valley and a resident of this town for many years, says the death of Minnie White is the loss of a unique person. He said when Mrs. White came to the Codroy Valley in the 1930s, she fitted in well from the start and came to be known as a professional housekeeper and homemaker. Tompkins said during her married life she and her husband, Richard White, a farmer and professional sports fisherman guide, raised a large family of six.
"Minnie was an outstanding citizen who became a part of the Codroy Valley area. I nominated her and wrote up her qualifications, which recognized her for her community service in providing music for charitable efforts and community affairs in the Codroy Valley and Port aux Basques area,"
he said. That nomination garnered her an entry into the Order of Canada. While he says he is not qualified to comment on her music, Tompkins said when Mrs. White arrived in the Codroy Valley, a noted top violin musician at that time in that area - Archie MacDonald - said her music had "lots of ding." He remembers her accordion music was enjoyed by all who attended social events where she played.
Tourism, Culture and Recreation Minister Kevin Aylward, legislature member for St. George's-Stephenville East, offered condolences to the White family on Monday. "Mrs. White was one of our province's most treasured musicians," Aylward said. "She was talented at playing many instruments including the mandolin, fiddle, piano and organ, but it was as an accordion player that she endeared herself to the hearts of Newfoundlanders and Labradorians and to people around the world. "She was truly our first lady of the accordion." Mrs. White learned to play the accordion as a young girl but stopped to raise her family. In the 1960s, she picked up her accordion again when her children were grown and began her extensive recording and performing career.
Mrs. White recorded four albums and was a regular performer at the Starlite Motel, as well as various clubs in western Newfoundland and folk festivals across the province.
She received the Harry Hibbs Award for East Coast Music, the Dr. Helen Creighton Lifetime Achievement Award from the East Coast Music Association, and has been inducted into the Order of Canada and the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council Hall of Honour.
"We are indebted to Mrs. White for her contribution to the arts community in Newfoundland and Labrador," said Aylward. "She will be remembered for her incredible talent, her body of work, and her kind spirit."
