Mrs. Lauretha Vickers White, affectionately called Lewin was born on September 16, 1945 in Chester, Georgia to the late Geneva Kirtz Vickers and Willie Vickers. Lauretha was the youngest daughter of nine siblings, seven of whom preceded her in death, Eva Clyde Pittman, Aldrin Vickers, Lonnie Vickers, Luther Vickers, Marion Vickers, Aaron Vickers, and Alice Vickers Banks. She was baptized at an early age and was a member of the Springfield Baptist Church, Chester, Georgia.

Lauretha later relocated to Detroit, Michigan and was employed at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. After 8 years in Detroit, she accepted a job at Baptist Medical Center in Montgomery, Alabama where she purchased a house and made it her home for 18 years. As her health began to decline, Lauretha decided to move back to Georgia to be closer to her family.
Lauretha enjoyed shopping, cooking, crocheting, and volunteering her time to help feed the community through the Community Outreach Ministry Program through Second African Baptist Church.
