Margaret Kelty Blandford, 93, of Louisville KY passed away on October 20, 2019. Margaret was born in Springfield, KY, in 1926, to the late Willie and Hattie Kelty.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, William H. Blandford. Surviving her are her sisters Phyllis Yates, Carrie Dearinger, and Anita Smith; children Kenneth Blandford (Pat), Carol Ford, Steven Blandford, Sheila Blandford (Gary), David Blandford (Sandy), and Susan Diemer (Darryl); grandchildren Holly Roberts, Joy Hardin, Emily Pohler, Matthew Blandford, Nikki Salladay, Zac Ford, Shaun Probst, Rebecca Ford, Kate Williams, James Diemer, and Michael Diemer; and seven great grandchildren.
Mrs. Blandford was a homemaker, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was a long-time member of St. John Vianney and St. Thomas More.
An avid traveler, Pinochle player, bowler, quilter, reader, and jigsaw puzzler, Margaret was always ready to go – especially if shrimp and wine were being served (and free!).
