Blanche Joanne Shepherd, 83, of Frazeysburg, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, March 15, 2023.
Blanche was born on September 24, 1939, in Flushing, Ohio to the late William A. and Mary Z. (Gach) Bober.
She retired from The Longaberger Company where she made a lot of friends. Blanche was truly a survivor of anything life threw at her. She never met a stranger and her love for family, friends, pets, and strays ran deep. She loved her coffee, company, and sitting on her porch.
She is survived by her daughters, Diane (Kelly) Lewis of Groveport, OH, Kirstin (Mike) Wiley of Baltimore, OH and Marnie (Shawn) McIntire of Baltimore, OH; a son Bobby (Ida) Lewis of Frazeysburg; sister Elizabeth McMath of Orlando, FL; eleven grandchildren James (Gayle) Coggins, Heather (Clay) Roberson, Kyanne Wiley, Kolt Wiley, Makenna McIntire, Dylan McIntire, Josie McIntire, Tayler (Derek) Hoge, Logan (Lauren) Lewis, Landon Lewis, and Abbagail Shepherd, eight great grandchildren Gauge, Bayne, Everly, Wrenly, Hannah, Avery, Trace, and Riot; numerous nieces and nephews.
Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her daughter Nicole Larae Shepherd. Blanche was the youngest of eleven children and is also preceded in death by her eight brothers, Frank, Eugene, Joe, John, William, Chester, Carl, and Anthony Bober and one sister Virginia Owings.
Friends may call at The Miller Funeral Home, 639 Main St., Coshocton on Saturday March 25, 2023 from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM where a memorial service will begin at 3:00 PM with Pastor Jeff Belt officiating.
