Blanch S. Nix, 84 of Winter Street in Claremont, NH died Monday, June 14, 2010, at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH, following a period of failing health. She was born in Rombauer, MO on May 8, 1926, a daughter of Charles and Julia (Sutton) Schmerbauch and had been Claremont resident since 1963 moving here from Cochituate, MA. She married Harding E. Nix on April 26, 1952, in Granite City, IL. Blanch graduated as class valedictorian from McCray-Dewey High School in Troy, IL in 1944. She also received a diploma from Western Union in Crawfordsville, IN, and then was employed as a Western Union Operator in Granite City. She hated getting "killed in action" telegrams and seeing families waiting to hear. After going to Comptometer School in St. Louis, Blanch became employed by General Steel in Granite City in 1951 and Raytheon in Waltham, MA. She and her husband owned and operated Nix's Store on Cornish Road in Claremont, NH, for many years. She enjoyed sewing, baking (she made her daughter's wedding dress), crafts, yard sales, reading, jigsaw puzzles, hummingbirds and taking care of her family. She made the best frosting for birthday cakes!

Nix, Claremont, NH; a daughter, Judith Castellini and her husband, Herbert, Unity, NH; a son, Charles Nix and his companion, Elizabeth Dyke, Claremont, NH; three grandchildren, Lindsay Castellini, Laurel Castellini, Christopher Nix, Sr., and several great grandchildren, five brothers, Roy Schmerbauch, Erwin Schmerbauch, Robert Schmerbauch, John Schmerbauch, three sisters, Viola Schmieg, Dorothy Schmerbauch, Ella Prendiville, and many nieces and nephews.
