YOUNGSTOWN Blanche Elizabeth Elliott was born in Nashville, Tenn., on March 2, 1924, to James and Myrtle Elliott. Blanche was the second of eight children and was preceded in death by her parents and six of her siblings.
As the years passed and she grew older, she refused to believe that 90 was just around the corner. She loved her home, her flowers, her friends and most of all, her family. Blanche turned 90, surrounded by her children and friends on March 2, 2014, complete with cake, candles and hats!
And so, her soul filled, she passed away March 23.
She will be missed by many. Most of her contemporaries preceded her in death, but true to her personality, she made many new pals.
In her younger years, she was a member of Bnai Brith, and the Pioneer Women, and she volunteered with Easter Seals.
She is survived by her sister, Violet; her brother, Ronald of Nashville; as well as two daughters, Gloria and Karen; and three sons, Mark, Jack and Jerry. Her loving family also includes six grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.
As per her request, there will be no services.
Contributions may be made to the Rodef Sholom Temple, 1119 Elm St., Youngstown, OH 44505.
Arrangements are being handled by the Shriver-Allison-Courtley-Weller-King Funeral Home.
