Blanche Marie Johnson, age 94 of Gulf Breeze, Florida, passed away on July 18, 2020 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.
Blanche was born June 28, 1926 to Samuel L. Albritton and Ida L. (Watson) Albritton in Jay, Florida. She was one of nine children. Blanche is preceded in death by her husband J.D. Johnson; and son, Jimmy Withers. Survivors include her son and daughter-in-law, Lon and Brenda Withers; granddaughter, Heather Moorer (Taylor); and great-granddaughter, Lonni Moorer, all of Gulf Breeze, Florida. She is also survived by one brother Max (Ann) Albritton of Jacksonville, Florida.
Blanche loved to cook for family and friends. She was always in the kitchen! Even later in life, she would still pick and shuck corn, snap and string peas, shell pecans, pickle peppers and always had plenty to pull from the freezer or pantry at a moment’s notice. She was always generous and known for her spunky personality.
Arrangements are being managed by Bayview Fisher-Pou Chapel & Memorial Park. The family will be holding a private memorial service.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Blanche’s name to a favorite charity are welcome.
