Blanche Haddix Landrum, 87, beloved widow of Ollie James Landrum, passed away on Monday, Aug 8, 2011, at Bourbon Heights Nursing Home after an extended illness. She was born on March 27, 1924, at Lost Creek, Breathitt County, KY, daughter of the late Arthur Haddix and Maude Noble Haddix. She attended Breathitt County High School, was graduated from Riverside Christian School, and was a member of the Riverside Brethren Church at Lost Creek.

Survivors include two sons, James (Anne)Landrum of Richmond, KY, and Stuart (Laurie Garner) Landrum of Versailles, KY; two daughters, Judy (Jim) Vining of Versailles, KY, and Mona (the late Allan) Proctor of Paris, Ky.; a granddaughter, Dana Massie of Lancaster, KY, a grandson, Patrick (Tammy) Massie of Lawrenceburg, KY, and two greatgrandsons, Tyler and Joshua Massie; two brothers, Bert (Helen) Haddix of Dayton, OH, and Joe (Eliza)Haddix of Fairborn, OH; a sister, Dove (Roy) Margenau of Grass Lake, MI; and a host of beloved nieces, nephews, extended family, and many friends.

Blanche was happiest when surrounded by her loving family, for whom she cooked many delicious meals from the gardens she and O.J. raised together. She was a talented seamstress and homemaker, took special interest in genealogy and kept extensive records of her research. She was a gentle, loving spirit and will be missed by all who knew her.

For their kindness and loving care, the family wishes to especially thank Donna Griggs and the staff at Bourbon Heights Nursing Home in Paris, KY.
