Blanche was born Nov. 9, 1936, in Zelienople, to Cyril Frank and Roma Blanche Rubright Pflugh.

Blanche spent a lifetime farming side by side with her husband of 61 years, Richard John Kind, whom she married on Dec. 22, 1956, and who preceded her in death on Sept. 18, 2017.
One of her favorite jobs was mowing hay for the family farm, and she loved being outside tending to her plants and flowers.
