She is still the pride and joy of North Myrtle Beach.  Vanna White lost her dad this week and shared the sad news on social media.

“It is with great sadness that I tell you my 96-year-old Dad passed away peacefully this morning.  He lived a full life and will be remembered as one of the kindest and most wonderful residents of North Myrtle Beach”.

I have no doubt her dad was the one at least partially responsible for the welcome sign as you enter North Myrtle Beach that proudly exclaims, “Home of Vanna White”.  He was very proud of her as he should be. Vanna White has been Pat Sajak’s sidekick on Wheel of Fortune for 31 years.  To learn more about this story check out all the details in People
