Born on November 15, 1930 in Glynn County, Georgia to Jim and Mildred Morgan Grimes as the oldest of three children. She was preceded in death by her parents.

Blanche was a devoted wife to her husband, Ben, of 73 years. After losing her mother at an early age, she became a mother figure for her brothers. Her loving care and compassion was felt by her girls, grands and great grands and to others that knew her.
She was a mother first, also working beside her husband in his business. She was a preschool teacher and retired from the Brantley County school system as a paraprofessional. She was a Sunday school teacher at the local Baptist church for many years and taught Sunday school at Bayview Nursing Home in Nahunta. Blanche will be sorely missed.
