Oct. 6, 1917—Jan. 8, 2014
Blanche Hillman Coultas passed away Jan. 8, 2014, in Crossville.
Mrs. Coultas was born in Spokane, WA, to Harry L. and Ada B. Hillman Oct. 6, 1917. She grew up in Santa Barbara, CA, and while attending Santa Barbara State College, met and married John H. Coultas. John was a fraternity brother of her older brother, Cleave Hillman.
Blanche and John lived in Oxnard, CA, where they raised two children. Son Johnny raised four boys in California, and daughter Christine married Dr. Richard Bilbrey of Tennessee while he was in the Navy stationed near Oxnard. They live in Crossville and have three children.
After the death of her husband in 1999, Blanche moved to Crossville to be near her daughter. She was soon asked to join the local P.E.O. chapter, as she had been a member of the organization for many years in California. In 2004, her son died in a tragic accident.
Blanche is survived by her daughter, son-in-law, seven grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Her ashes are to be sent to Ventura, CA, to be buried with her husband and son.
There will be no memorial service; however, her family and friends will always remember how loving and special she was.
Bilbrey Funeral Home, Inc. (www.bilbreyfh.com) was in charge of the arrangements.
