Blanche Williams
(Died October 11, 2014) 

Blanche Lucille Williams passed quietly from this earthly existence on October 11, 2014 in Simi Valley, California. At the time of her death, Blanche was under the loving care of her oldest daughter, Peggy Anne Pulsipher. She died from complications associated with advanced age and a broken pelvis. Prior to Blanche’s time in California, she had been under the loving care of her daughter, Nancy McKinney, for several years in Samaria, Idaho. She was preceded in death by her husband, Alvin Thomas Williams. Blanche is the daughter of Samuel Lorenzo and Lucille Lephia Dent. She is survived by her two sons and two daughters: Samuel and Marilyn Williams of Wichita, Kansas; Jerry Williams of Denver, Colorado; Peggy and Michael Pulsipher of Simi Valley, California and Nancy McKinney of Samaria, Idaho. She is also survived by a growing posterity of 21 grandchildren and 32 great grandchildren. Blanche was born in Trenton, Nebraska on July 6, 1928. She was preceded in death by her brother, Paul Dent, and her sisters, Donna McCord and Patricia Ash. She is survived by her sisters, Ellen Mansfield of Wray, Colorado; Linda Lilly of Rush, Colorado and Maxine Reingardt of Fort Collins, Colorado and her sister-in-law, Bessie Rose Dent of Wray, Colorado. She married Alvin Thomas Williams on April 24, 1950 in Rifle, Colorado. They were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake City Temple on August 7, 1957. Together they served an LDS mission in the Manila Phillipines Mission from 1980-82. Blanche served in many positions in the LDS Church. Blanche is a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, beloved by all of her family. She will be greatly missed but the family is blessed with many, many wonderful memories of her cinnamon rolls, monkey bread, good “washdowns” with the hose after getting in trouble, and most of all – her quiet testimony of the reality and divinity of Jesus Christ. She will be greatly missed but the inspiration of her life will influence all current and future generations. Services will be held on Monday, October 20, 2014 at the Malad 2nd Ward building located at 20 S. 100 W. in Malad City, Idaho. A viewing will be held at the church at 10:00 a.m. with the service beginning at 12:00 p.m. Internment will be at the Samaria, Idaho cemetery immediately after the service.
