MULLEN

Mrs. Blanche Vivian Mullen passed away in Noric House on Wednesday, January 17th, 2007 at the age of 87 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Carole Bulford of Vernon, B.C., two grandchildren; Tanis (Glenn) Yawney of Vernon, B.C. and Robert Bulford of Puerto Rico, her great-grandson, Aiden Yawney, one brother; Bert Everitt of Tofield, Alberta, one step-sister; Doreen (Bill) McLennan of Edmonton, Alberta, several nieces and nephews as well as numerous extended family members. She was predeceased by her husband, Joseph (Joe) Mullen on February 22nd, 2005 after having celebrated 67 years of marriage, her infant daughter, Janet Mullen as well as her brother, Ross Everitt and her sister, Nadine Morris. Blanche lived in Armstrong for a number of years and was very active every Fall in the IPE. She was a lady who always liked to dress up and look the very best she could. This was reflected in the fact that while in Armstrong she owned Carole’s Ladies Wear and then years later when living in Vernon she was the Manager of Ashton’s Ladies Wear. For a time Joe and Blanche owned and operated a Nightclub and Restaurant in Prince George and wherever Blanche lived she always kept herself active in the community alongside her husband. She was a former member of the I.O.D.E., was an avid golfer and curler and enjoyed Bridge which she still loved to play up to the age of 86. Blanche was a wonderful homemaker and her home was always open to everyone. She loved to cook and was a wonderful hostess and always made it a priority in her life to look after other’s needs before her own. She loved to crochet and sew for her family and friends. Blanche will be missed by all those who knew her. Cremation preceded a private Graveside Service which will be held at a later date at the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Cemetery.
