Emily Jane BlattnerEmily J. Blattner, age 83 of Greenville, passed away Monday, May 28, 2012 at Metron of Greenville. She was born January 28, 1929 in Lowell. Emily was a single mother who raised three children on her own. She was the best mom you could ask for and was loved very much. If she only had fifty cents for a bottle of pop, she would split it four ways to share with her children. Emily was a very patriotic woman. For many years she clipped coupons to send overseas for our veterans and their families through the American Legion Auxiliary. She received many little gifts and notes from overseas in appreciation. She saved postmarked stamps for a project through the Travelers Protective Association, and received an award for her community service. She donated her time by preparing many funeral luncheons at the Ray I. Booth American Legion Post 101 in Greenville. Emily worked as a seamstress at both drycleaners in Greenville for many years. She also did seamstress work for private individuals around Greenville. She was preceded in death by her parents Louis and Anna; brothers, Joseph, Floyd, and Julian; and sister, Delores. She is survived by her children, Al (Mary) Blattner of Frankfort, Linda (Virgil) Fountain of Rockford, Scott (Sharon) Blattner of Grandville; and Brad (Kristin) Miklosovic of Parma, OH; grandchildren, Aaron (Peggy) Blattner, Jon (Ashley) Frost, Beth (Roger) Kamp, Joe (Jackie) Blattner, and Becky Blattner; ten great-grandchildren; brother, William; and sisters, Helen and Gen. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM Monday, June 4, 2012 at Hurst Funeral Home, with Deacon Darrel Kempf of St. Charles Catholic Church officiating. Visitation will be Sunday from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at the funeral home, where the Rosary will be prayed at 6:30 PM. Interment will be in St. Charles Cemetery, and a luncheon will follow at the Ray I. Booth American Legion Post 101. Memorial contributions may be given to the 1073rd FRG (National Guard 1073rd Maintenance Company Family Readiness Group) 319 S. Hillcrest St. Greenville MI 48838.
