Mrs. Kahren Holland White

January 30, 1967 — November 3, 2021

Kahren Holland White of Maryville, Tennessee died November 3, 2021 following a brief but valiant fight against cancer. Kahren was a brave, adventurous, big-hearted spouse, mother, and friend; a traveler of the world, lover of music, a gourmet cook, and connoisseur of great food and all things associated with it. Her sharp intellect was matched only by her eternally optimistic outlook. She experienced forty-nine states- Alaska was in her sights- and dozens of countries throughout the world traveling with her family and friends. She planned with perfection and always appreciated a good challenge, often pushing her family and friends to pursue new experiences and create lasting memories. She loved to host gatherings large and small. She always made everyone feel welcome and no one ever left her home hungry. She began building lifelong friendships while a student at Kingsport Dobyns Bennett High School and at Stetson University where she graduated with a degree in Accounting. While at Stetson, she joined the Delta Delta Delta Sorority where she made many lifelong friends. Following college, she began work in the accounting and financial services industry and traveled across the country and around the world providing invaluable counsel to her clients. Kahren met her husband and travel partner, Andy, in 1999, and they married in May 2000. The Whites settled in Maryville, and Kahren quickly became involved in the community through Junior Service League, Leadership Blount, American Red Cross, New Hope Children’s Advocacy Center, and many other organizations. Kahren and Andy eventually started a family and were blessed with twin daughters, Sara Kate and Delaney. Kahren loved travelling throughout the southeast watching her daughters compete in rowing and volleyball. In 2009 Kahren and her husband, Andy cofounded Firewater Associates LLC based in downtown Maryville where she served as the CFO in recent years. Kahren’s legacy survives through her husband, Andy White, daughters Sara Kate and Delaney White, mother Judith Holland, sister Christy Holland, brother-in-law Doug White, sister-in-law Julie White Jones (Don), several nieces and nephews, and the family’s Goldendoodle, Doodlebug. Her legacy also survives in the countless friends drawn to Kahren by her beaming smile, hearty laugh, adventurous spirit, and optimistic outlook on life. Kahren is preceded in death by her father, Harold D. “Hal” Holland, Jr. Friends and family will gather November 17, 2021 at 4:30 p.m. to celebrate Kahren at First United Methodist Church, 804 Montvale Station Road, Maryville, Tennessee. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a Memorial donation to New Hope Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center. Donations can be made online at www.blountkids.org.
