On Friday, August 9, 1996, Johanna Hollweck Blanke, joined her husband Carl, and son Robert after a long separation.

Johanna was born in Munich, Germany on January 3, 1899, and moved to Utah when she was seven years old.

We say goodbye to a great lady, a wonderful mother, grandmother and friend, who touched the lives of so many. She gave a legacy of unconditional love and was always there. She opened her home to everyone and no one left her home without a smile, something to eat, and a piece of candy. She spent her life dedicated to her family and in the service of countless others. She had a gifted way with young people and once they met Nan they never forgot her.

She is survived by her daughter and best friend, Pearl Kirk; her son-in-law, F. Scott Kirk; three grandsons, David S. Kirk (Judy); Kenneth G. Kirk (Janelle); and Robert C. Kirk (Benja); 12 great-grandchildren, Shane, Danielle, Dallin, Jeremy, Tawni, Billy, Derek, Travis, Trina, BreeAnn, Dana and Mandee; and her sister, Elsie Parry.

The family expresses their gratitude to all, who over the years, have given so much support and showed so many kindnesses, especially Kay and Bob Coles.

"We will always feel her love."

Funeral services will be held at 12 noon Wednesday, August 14, 1996 in the Wasatch Lawn Mortuary Chapel, 3401 So. Highland Drive, where friends may call one hour prior to services on Wednesday. Interment, Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 1342 East 500 South, Salt Lake City.
