Blanche L. Opatich

Blanche L. Opatich, nee Curtis, 92, passed away Sunday, October 9, 2016. Preceded in death by her one true love, Stephen Opatich.  Mother of Stephen (Diane), Ronald (Lynn), and Gary (Debra). Grandmother of 10 and great-grandmother of 11.  Born March 27, 1924 in Detroit to George and Marion Curtis. Also preceded in death by her sister, Jeanie Brosman and brother, George Curtis.  She will be lovingly missed by many nieces, nephews and friends.

She loved family, bingo, reading and crocheting, but above all, she enjoyed cooking and baking for her boys. If she knew they were coming to visit, there was always a fresh pie, cake or a batch of cookies in the oven, but first a full hearty meal.  This is what she enjoyed most. Known as Mom to her boys, she was “Grandma” to everyone; and you were company in her home only once. She will be truly missed on everyone’s trip “up north.”

Visitation will be at the Chagnon Funeral Home today (Thursday, October 13) from 2 – 6 p.m. with cremation to follow. Blanche’s final resting place will be at Ocqueoc Township Cemetery. Those planning an expression of sympathy please consider a donation in memory of Blanche to the Disabled American Veterans.
