    • Beloved aunt and treasured friend, Blanche Burton Hesse, passed away on December 29, 2004 at Holladay Health Care, Holladay, Utah, due to incidents related to age.
      Her loving gentleness and quick humor touched and enriched the lives of those who were privileged to be in her midst. Her great wisdom and zest for life energized us all, as did her genuineness and authenticity. She set a standard of excellence that will continually inspire and influence us for many years to come. She will be sorely missed!
      Blanche was born December 20, 1907 in Nephi, Utah, to Thomas Hyrum and May Pexton Burton. She attended the University of Utah and later the Utah Business School. These skills served her well when she returned to Nephi to help her father in his law office. After his passing in 1930, she left for Washington, D.C. where she worked for the CPA firm of Buchanan and Company for 12 years.
      She married Clement F. Hesse on May 17, 1941 and they went into the restaurant business, opening cafes in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and La Jolla, California. They moved to Yuma, Arizona, where they continued this business as well as investing in a citrus grove.
      After her husband's death in 1978, Blanche moved to Salt Lake City, and lovingly cared for her mother who lived to the age of 101. She then availed herself of the opportunities of travel, which she dearly loved, and enjoyed many trips to Europe, the Mediterranean, the Holy Land, Egypt, the Greek Islands, Russia, Mainland China, and the Caribbean Islands.
      Blanche taught herself computer skills at the age of 87, and proceeded to do a great genealogical work for the Burton, Pexton, Hesse and Boucher families. She wrote erudite histories of her father, mother, grandfather, and loved to share her knowledge with others. Blanche was always learning through reading, classes, and other educational forums. She loved people and her home was always a gathering place for her many nieces, nephews, and their children. She celebrated her 97th birthday last week, and graciously greeted over 65 family members and friends.
      Blanche was preceded in death by her parents, husband, four brothers and one sister. She is survived by many nieces and nephews.
      We express our deep gratitude and appreciation to the staffs at LDS Hospital, St. Joseph Villa, and most recently, Holladay Health Care for their tender and loving compassion.
      Funeral services will be held Monday, January 3, 2005, at 11:00 a.m. in the North Eagle Gate 20th Ward, 107 North & 'G' Street. Friends may call at the Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple, Sunday from 6-7 p.m. and Monday at the ward from 10:00-10:45 a.m. Interment will be in the Vine Bluff Cemetery in Nephi, Utah.
