Anne Carlton Blanchard died February 23 near Asheville, NC, at the age of 92. She grew up in Oxford, Georgia, and later graduated as valedictorian from Wesleyan College in Macon, GA.
Anne married Dick Blanchard, a student at Macon’s Mercer University who became a Methodist minister in the Florida conference. She served faithfully in the churches to which Dick was assigned, in addition to being a mother of three and teaching mathematics for years in the public school system. In 2002, Wesleyan honored Anne with an award for “Distinguished Service to the Church.” Her other interests included genealogy, world travel, and photography.
Anne and Dick moved to Asheville in 2000 to be closer to family. She is survived by her daughter Carol and her husband O.C.; her sister Emmie and her husband Thomas; her granddaughter Katie and her husband Jeff; and her son-in-law David and his wife Jane. She was preceded in death by her husband Dick, son Rick, and daughter Emily.
She will be remembered as a gracious and intelligent Southern lady, devoted to the love and service of family, friends, and church.
Services will be held on March 30 at 2pm at Allen Memorial United Methodist Church in Oxford, GA and on May 5 at 2:30 pm at Givens Estates Chapel in Asheville.
Memorials may be sent to the United Methodist Women’s Legacy Fund at or by contacting your local congregation.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Blanchard and Johnson families as you face the days ahead. She is in the Lord's arms with Dick and her parents. We will see them all again someday when He calls us home. Much love, Jan Hardy Berning (Sutton & Mae Hardy's daughter)

My condolences to the Blanchard families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Anne. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
