Throughout her life she lived in California, Tennessee and then finally settled down in Toledo, Ohio. She met Jerry Blasingim Sr. and they were married on July 16, 1968. They celebrated 50 years of marriage before his passing in 2018. After his passing she moved out to Mayberry Village Senior Living Community into a little apartment that she was so proud of. She loved having her friends come and visit her there. She enjoyed arts and crafts, painting and hanging out with her friends.

Her final wishes were to be cremated and once again joined with her husband.
The family would like to thank all of the friends and family that have called and sent condolences. Most of all they would like to thank Horace and Patti Ardis for their many decades of friendship and for everything they have done over the years, especially the last few years to help mom and dad when their health was failing. They will never know how much their help was appreciated. Arrangements were entrusted to Sujkowski Funeral Home Northpointe, 419-476-9176.
