Sallee Jo (Strawser) Blanchard

March 25, 1955 ~ July 20, 2020 (age 65)


Sallee Strawser Blanchard saw the face of God and it took her breath away on the morning of June 20, 2020.

Born during a blizzard on March 25, 1955 in Silver Creek, NY, she grew up in Sheridan and had lived in Massachusetts since 1975.

She is survived by two daughters and a grandson whom she loved more than life itself, Megan Blanchard Misiewicz of Princeton, NJ, Emily Blanchard of West Warwick, RI and Drue Misiewicz, of Princeton, NJ. She was predeceased by her grandparents Carl and Hildegarde Strawster and Buel and Katherine Bishop, all of whom provided safe havens of security and unconditional love in her younger years.

Sallee loved her daughters, most dogs, some cats, bacon, irreverence, ocean cruises, live theater, movies, reading just about anything, the Adirondacks, Lake Winnipesaukee, the Maine coastline, Bobby Vinton, late nights, and talking to strangers, in that order. She had no tolerance for bullies, early mornings, the New England Patriots, especially their quarterback Tom Brady, New York City, or stupidity.


Sallee's visiting hours will be held on Sunday, August 2, 2020 from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm, in the Silva Funeral Home, 80 Broadway, Taunton.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, August 3, 2020 at 10:00 am, in Saint Ann's Church,  660 N Main St, Raynham, MA. Interment will be privately held.

Her family requests that flowers not be sent. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in her memory can me made to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to 4900 Tuttle Crossing Blvd, Dublin, OH 43016 or at https://support.davethomasfoundation.org/
