Emergency crews tended to the woman, then took her to South Shore Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Witnesses told police that a group of people had noticed White floating on her back for several minutes and found her unresponsive when they went to check on her.
Authorities do not believe foul play is suspected in White's death and think she may have suffered a medical incident. An autopsy will determine her exact cause and manner of death.
State police detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney's office are investigating.
