Beverly J. “Pidge” Blank (Wittenberg), loving wife, mother, and sister, departed this life on Saturday, February 3rd, shortly after midnight. She was born in La Crosse, Wi on August 7, 1938 to Harry C. and Beverly B.(Seabolt) Wittenberg. She was married to the love of her life, Jerry Blank, for nearly 60 years, though they had been together for a lifetime and she was the very proud mother of 2 children.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry Carl and Beverly Beatrice Wittenberg along with sister, Donna Marie Rouches, nephew John Michael Bonds, and brother in-laws Gregg Kenyon, Jack Bonds, and Dan Rouches. She is survived by her husband, Jerry Blank, children Jeff (Susan) Blank and Trischa Wiste, grandson Mitchell Blank and her sisters Leora Bonds, Rita Olson, and Nancy Kenyon along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Pidge worked many jobs throughout her life, when and where she wished, and excelled at everything she chose to do. Those who knew her best remember her warm and giving heart, her willingness to explore, her fondness for good conversation, a trip to the casino, and a good card game. She will be eternally missed by all.
