Mackenzie Lynae Blandau was born May 16, 1983 in Fort Dodge, Iowa, daughter of Michael and Connie (Koch) Blandau. They lived in Holiday, Florida where Mackenzie attended school through the third grade moving to Eldora the summer of 1994. She graduated from Eldora-New Providence High School with the class of 2002. Mackenzie had been living in Hampton, Iowa the past few years where she was working as a certified day care provider and her greatest joy came from the children she cared for with love.
She is survived by her two year old son, Carlos Dean Blandau; parents, Mike and Connie Blandau of Eldora; brother, Adam Blackstock of Marshalltown; sister, Serena Blackstock of Marshalltown; paternal Grandmother, Hazel Nordyke of Eldora; and maternal grandfather, Duane Koch of Eldora. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfathers, Ronald Blandau and Duke Nordyke; maternal grandmother, Lorraine Koch; and cousins, Tanner Ackerson and Derrick Sanders.
She was one of the kindest individuals I have ever known. While I did not know her very well, her life has left quite an impression on me. She babysat my cousin's four children for a time while she lived in Eldora, and became an extended member of their family. She went everywhere with them, and they loved her dearly. She was very easy to love, I am certain of that, as she always put others first. If we could all be as unselfish as she was in her everyday life, the world would be a better place. May GOD Richly Bless Her in Heaven.
