It is with great sadness that the family of Blanche Curran Stutts announces her passing on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at the young age of 103.
Born in Rowan County on December 14, 1916, she was the daughter of the late Fleet Curran & Mamie Lowder Curran.
Blanche was a graduate of China Grove High School and was a long-serving member of Second Presbyterian Church in Salisbury. In 1956, she became the Manager of School Food Service at R.G. Kizer Elementary School and later at South Rowan High School. She was a member of several meaningful organizations including the Order of the Eastern Star where she held various officer positions, Meals on Wheels where she delivered meals until well after her 95th birthday and Women of the Second Presbyterian Church. She was a beloved mother, grandmother and friend and will be remembered by all who knew her for her loyalty, love of desserts, and zest for life.
