Obituary for Josephine Blanchard

Josephine Dorothy Blanchard, 90, entered eternal peace on Monday, November 26, 2018. Giuseppina (Josephine), known as JoJo, was born in Mount Vernon, New York; the fourth of seven children of the late Onofrio and Elizabeth Gallucci.

In January of 1948, JoJo married Joseph John Blanchard Sr. in Santa Fe Springs, California. As a Navy couple they moved to Honolulu, Hawaii, before relocating to San Diego and finally settling in Lemon Grove, California. The pair remained happily married for 63 years until Joe’s passing in September of 2011.

JoJo thoroughly enjoyed square dancing and bowling. She learned to bowl at the Lomita Village bowling alley, where she won numerous awards as a member of several women’s teams. She also enjoyed shopping, especially for clothes, and as such was always meticulously dressed.

One of her true passions was cooking her traditional, Italian-family recipes and several Polish dishes that her husband Joe enjoyed. Her famous fried rice dish was always in high demand while entertaining family and friends in her home and spacious backyard.

She was also a dedicated docent volunteer for Alvarado Hospital for 25 years, serving on many hospital committees. After her time at Alvarado, JoJo was an occasional docent volunteer for Grossmont Hospital, in La Mesa, California.

As an active parishioner of St. John of the Cross Catholic Church in Lemon Grove, JoJo was a member of the Catholic Daughters Club, volunteered for fundraising events, participated in church plays, and sang in the choir at Sunday and holiday Masses.

JoJo is survived by her sister, Clementine Muto of Temple City, her brother Arturo Gallucci of Seal Beach, and many nieces and nephews. She will be lovingly remembered by her three children and spouses: Ann Jo & William Beck, Beth Blanchard, and Joseph & Karen Blanchard Jr., as well as her three beloved grandchildren: Laurel Collette Beck, Jacqline Nicole Blanchard and Carl Anthony Blanchard.

Funeral services will be held Monday, 12/17/2018 at 10:00 AM
St. John of the Cross Catholic Church, 8086 Broadway, Lemon Grove, California 91945.
