Constance Blattner

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

A life complete, a work well done, a race happily ended, like the ending of a beautiful day, the sunset being the climax of the passing hours and bringing rest to the weary traveler who has journeyed along the way.

No one knew her but to love her, no one mentioned her name only in praise. Loving mother, devoted grandmother.

Constance Robb Blattner, 81, of Jackson, died Saturday, July 3, 2010, at her home in Jackson.

She was born June 4, 1929, in Detroit, to Clive R. and Opal Jewel Daubs Robb. She and Donald Kies Blattner, who preceded her in death, were married March 9, 1948, at Cape Girardeau.
