April 3, 2009
Our beloved mother, grandmother and friend, Blanche Cazier Mayne, peacefully passed away March 27, 2009, in Salt Lake City, Utah. She lived a long, fulfilling life, giving endlessly to those that she loved.
Blanche was born in Afton, Wyo., to Artello and Mable Cazier. She was the eldest of their nine children.
On November 18, 1935, she lovingly married Kenneth H. Mayne, and they were later solemnized in the Jordan River Temple. They are the parents of Kenneth Robert Mayne (daughter-in-law Joanne Broderick Mayne), Ronald Doyle Mayne, Jodi Mayne Davis and Shawn Kennedy Mayne. Blanche was also a kind and caring grandmother to Cindy, Troy, Lonnie and Heather, and great-grandmother to Shane , Alex, Mac, Olivia, McKenzie, Skyler, Colton and Brody.
Aside from her endless devotion to her family, she managed to excel in many other ventures. During WWII, she was one o the first female welders, working on the ship "Liberty" in San Francisco. Blanche was the force and heart behind the family boxing and wrestling profession which lead to several World Title Boxing Championships. She also had many successes in real estate.
For years, Blanche and her husband Ken resided in Deer Valley during which time she operated two business, The Alpine Prospector Lodge "Hula Bowl" on Main Street in Park City and Blanche’s Bistro in Ogden, Utah.
Blanche firmly believed that there are no "bad" people, just lost souls. She personally touched and healed many souls near and far. Everyone was always welcome in her heart and in her home. All who had the privilege of knowing Blanche will miss her very deeply.
