Blanche LaVene Foxley, 95, of Platte, SD passed away Friday, December 27, 2019 at the Platte Care Center. Memorial Services will be held at a later date.

Blanche LaVene (Pinney) Foxley was born on February 4, 1924 to Price Austin and Catherine (Nolan) Pinney in Wagner, SD. She graduated from Wagner High School in 1941, went on to earn her teaching certificate from Springfield State Normal School and began teaching. In 1943 Blanche was united in marriage to Eugene Wilson “Curley” Foxley in Butte, NE. She also worked in the Platte Livestock Market office until the age of 85.

Blanche loved to spend time with her children and grandkids. She looked forward to playing cards with her friends. She always made sure to send birthday cards to everyone and enjoyed making birthday cakes for family and friends.

We all loved her homemade bread, cinnamon rolls and canned peaches. She also made sure to have Snickers, Juicy Fruit gum, lemon drops, chocolate covered peanuts and ice cream for all of us.

Grateful for having shared in Blanche’s life, two children: Judy (Jim) Ryan of Yankton, SD and Randy (Sharon) Foxley of Platte, SD; seven grandchildren: Jill (Greg) Kouri, Jay (Rebecca) Ryan, Jon (Jessica) Ryan, Jamie (Randy) Karels, Jodi (Mark) Payer, Joel (Jodene) Foxley and Steve (Jeana) Foxley; 16 great grandchildren; four great-great grandchildren, plus Baby Foxley (Jan. 2020) and Baby Johnson (Feb. 2020); along with several nieces and nephews.

Blanche was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene Foxley (August 14, 2016); her parents, Price and Catherine Pinney; two brothers: Joseph (Marge) Pinney and Marvin Pinney; parents-in-law, Lloyd and Fern Foxley; and in-laws: Wendell (Marion) Foxley, Evelyn (Harry) Ellis and Pegge (Beryl) Pranger.
