Lincoln and Lee -
When Tomorrow Starts Without Me ...
Our beloved mother, grandmother, and friend, Patricia Blake, passed away September 25, 2016, at her home in Lincoln. She was born September 20, 1933, the daughter of Lewis and Helen Morrison. She and her husband, the late Paul Blake, were married 42 years and made their home in Lee. She remained there for several years following his death before moving to Lincoln.
Despite the move, her heart remained in Lee. She loved to spend her days visiting the Old Blake Farm, Silver Lake, Harris' Takeout, Raymonds' Store, and Lee Motors. Each afternoon after 2 p.m. she could be found at Triple L Acres, the home of her dear friend, Barbara Potts, where she would sit on her favorite swing and visit.
Pat's most cherished pastimes included boat rides around Silver Lake, cookouts at the Narrows, spending time with her grandchildren, and riding the back roads of Lee with her friends and family. She became a world traveler when she took a trip to Africa with Gary, to visit her granddaughter Ashley.
