Adele F Blackburn

Our mom, Adele "Dell" Blackburn, 85, passed away at her home on December 18, 2021 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. But this is how we'll remember her:

She was a loving wife, mom, grandma, great-grandma, sister and friend who was also funny and smart. The grandkids came to her for advice or to just spend the day talking, and she loved every minute of it. She was also known for her ability to tell a great story and her friends would say she should write a book. She did love books (and bingo), but she loved her family most of all - and she was very proud of her grandchildren. One of her greatest pleasures in life was attending their sporting events and she was their biggest cheerleader. When the great-grandchildren came along, she couldn't wait to attend their activities as well, and even though she was slowing down, she wanted to be there.

Mom and Dad (Harold) celebrated 53 years of marriage before he passed. Together, they had the three of us: Lisa, Carla, and Kevin.

We're planning a celebration of her life this summer and planting a tree we can visit forever.
