RICHLAND - Blanche (Blaza) M. Razo of Toppenish went to be with her Lord and Savior on March 10, 2013 in Richland, WA after a long courageous battle with kidney disease.

Blanche was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who will be missed dearly.

She was born on Feb. 3rd, 1938 to Blas and Rosaura Perez in Texas, and they moved to Yakima when she was a young girl. She then met her husband Raymond B. Razo whom she was married to for 42 years. Together they raised 6 girls, and for a time, 4 grandchildren.

Blanche had a life that put her through many trials and tribulations, yet she stood strong like a rock for her family and grandchildren. Blanche raised her daughters to be strong and independent women and she instilled many good qualities and values. She provided a loving safe home and made sure her children and grandchildren never needed for anything.

She worked for Crystal Linen in Yakima for many years, then went to work with her husband at Brulotte Farms, Gamache Farms, and Pistoresi Farms. From there, she went back to school for nursing and worked at Yakima Valley Farmworkers Clinic in Toppenish and Toppenish Nursing Home as a CNA. During her work in the Toppenish Nursing home she saved a patient from falling out of bed, and as a result she was unable to continue working. She then focused on taking care of her youngest daughter, Michelle (Razo) and took in grandchildren who demanded all of her time and attention.

Blanche loved spending time with her family, grandchildren, and friends, of which she had many. She enjoyed gardening, reading, sewing, cooking, fishing, camping, and crafts. She loved the outdoors and loved piling the kids up in the pickup and whisking them away for a fun camping trip. She enjoyed many spontaneous moments with her oldest daughter Barbara and was being cared for by her youngest daughter, Michelle since moving to Richland.

Blanche is survived by her loving and lifetime husband, Raymond B. Razo of Richland (formerly of Toppenish), sister Beatrice DeMarquis of Texas, brother Alex Perez of Canada, and 6 daughters: Barbara Capetillo-Supnet (Gamet) of Toppenish, Veronica Mirelez (Gamet) of Yakima, and Regina Pina Cabebe (Gamet) of Yakima, Cassandra Birrueta (Gamet) of Wapato and Michelle Harper (Razo) of West Richland, numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren and 5 step children.

Blanche is preceded in death by her parents, Blas and Rosaura Perez; her daughter, Katrina M. Hernandez, Juarez (Gamet), grandson, Michael J. Supnet, and 2 sons in law, Reynaldo Capetillo and Thomas Supnet, and one stepson, Terry Razo.

Momma, you will be missed by all who knew and loved you. Rest In Peace...

Service for Blanche will be on Thursday, March 21, 10 AM at St. Aloysius Catholic Church, 213 N. Beech St. Following the service a dinner with the family will be held at Toppenish Eagles, in Toppenish, WA.
