Jetttann has lived a full life passing at 80 years young. She was born in Green Briar, West Virginia to William Riley Blankenship and Frankie Blankenship (Sturgell). She is survived by 4 siblings out of 11; Dale Blankenship of BZ Corners, WA, Bob Blankenship of La Center, WA, Oakley Blankenship of Kettle Falls, Wa, Wanda Brown of Woodland, WA. They came to Washington when Jettann was 10 years old and she had a full life with 5 daughters from 2 marriages. Gleisha Elmer, Jeanna Elmer, Garlene Morris, Rema Autry and Kyleen Demember. She also had three bonus children from her soul mate Kealoha Pahukoa. Duke Pahukoa, Charles JR Pahukoa, and Kuuipo Pahukoa. Together there are many grandchildren and great-grandchildren that were her world.
Jettann worked hard all her life from tulip fields to bartending, concession stands to owning and operating the Jett Burger Cafe in Camas WA. Retirement was filled with crocheting and knitting beautiful gifts as she would say, " I have to keep my hands busy". Jettann loved the beach but her family was her true passion she never missed an opportunity to spoil them.
We will be celebrating her life Aug, 28th at 1 pm with family and friends a good old-fashioned potluck at 431 Tucker RD Toledo, WA.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Brown's Funeral Home in Camas, Washington. To send condolences to the family, please visit Jettann's guest book at www.brownsfh.com
