Sandra K. Blankenship

Sandra Kaye Blankenship, 77, of Bucyrus, died Tuesday, October 6, 2020 at her home.



Sandy was born March 11, 1943 in Bucyrus to the late George E. and Sara A. (Armstrong) Powers. In 1958, she married the love of her life, Aaron “Hiway” Blankenship and he precedes her in death. Sandy spent many years working at Ralphie’s Bar where she loved socializing with the regulars and lastly worked at Burcliff Industries, retiring in the mid-1990s.



She loved being around family and always looked forward to holiday gatherings. Sandy enjoyed playing BINGO, her handheld poker game and rarely missed an episode of Jeopardy or the Wheel of Fortune. Probably one of her most favorite pastimes was searching out deals at garage sales and auctions.
