Obituary for Blanch Pearl Page Burdette

Blanch Pearl Page Burdette, 97, of Sevierville, TN passed away Sunday, February 4, 2018 at Fort Sanders Sevier Nursing Home. She was a member of Murphy’s Chapel United Methodist Church. Blanch for the most part was a stay at home Mom, but upon moving to TN, she began working for Gold Rush Junction as the manager of their campground and rental cabins. She was an excellent seamstress and made many of her daughters’ dresses. Always a wonderful cook, she became semi-famous in Sevier County for her delicious pies that she made for the Methodist Church booth at the County Fair. Others enjoyed her special gifts of homemade chocolates at Christmas, such as her mailman, florist, oil company, as well as, family and friends. An avid crafter, she created items of knit, crochet, cross stitch, and macramé, which her children now cherish.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Theodore “Ted” Burdette.

Blanch is survived by her four beloved children: son, Cody and Lynette Burdette; daughters, Rita and Frank Barton, Viola and Walt Riordan, Anita and Buddy Helton; grandchildren, Eric and William Burdette, Christine Bennett, Julie Horton, Natalie DeVries, Kevin Watts, Kim Bacon, Steve and Wyatt Hamrick, Sean and Joey Riordan, Heather Buckberry, Amanda Whitman, Chloe Simmons, Brad Helton, and Becca Archer; 30 great-grandchildren; and 13 great-great-grandchildren.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude and appreciation for the excellent care from Fort Sanders Sevier Nursing Home Staff.
