Blanche Marie Bracco, 84 of Lakeland, FL, formerly of Farmington, MO, passed away Friday, October 6, 2023, in Michigan. She was born in Detroit, MI, on September 24, 1939, to parents Basil McMann and Wilma (Lashley) and Everett Barker.
Blanche was a committed and loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She lived in Detroit until her father passed away, then her family moved back to Wayne County, MO.

She was of the Baptist faith and was saved as a young girl and past attended Beulah Baptist Church in Brunot, MO. Blanche was an avid collector. She enjoyed collecting things from Baseball cards to Beanie Babies. She was also quite the crafter and artist. Blanche loved painting and woodworking.
