Grace D. Blount – Lincoln

Grace D. Blount – Lincoln

Grace D. Blount, 85 of Lincoln, R.I., died peacefully on Sunday, May 10, at Eastgate Nursing and Rehab in East Providence, R.I .

She was the daughter of the late August Dube and Martha (Greer) Freebairn. She was the wife of the late Gilbert N. Blount. She was the sister of Ruth A. Deschenes of Lincoln, R.I., and the late Irene Thompson of Gardiner, Maine.

She was the loving mother of four children, Patricia L. MacLean of Rumford, R.I., and her husband James, Neil R. Blount of North Providence, R.I., and his wife Nancy, Robert W. Blount of New Smyrna Beach, Fla., and his wife Tina, and David J. Blount of Oviedo, Fla., and his wife, Michelle.

She was the loving grandmother of Michael Gendron and his wife, Dayle, of Rehoboth, Mass., Colin Blount of New Smyrna Beach, Fla., Ryan Blount and Alana Blount of Oviedo, Fla.

She was the loving aunt of Dawn Bishop, and her husband, Robert Bishop; the late Scott Robertson; Guy Deschenes and his wife, Fern; Ralph Thompson and Charles Thompson; Cheryl Daigneault and Margueritte Daley. She was the great-aunt of Scott Bishop, Eric Thompson and Devin Thompson.

She was employed by the town of Lincoln as a secretary to the Tax Assessor. She was a lifelong communicant of Christ Episcopal Church in Lincoln, where she was an active member and sang in the choir for many years.

She enjoyed family get togethers, especially watching her grandchildren grow up and taking delight in their accomplishments. She enjoyed crocheting, listening to her music and baking. She loved baking for special occasions. Some of her “famous’ recipes are printed in the church cookbook. Her best recipe by far, loved by all her kids was her “Jewish Coffee Cake,” which she faithfully made for each child to open and devour on Christmas morning every year.

She had a large circle of wonderful friends with whom she enjoyed spending time with, going to lunch or just chatting on the phone. When her husband was living, they would enjoy traveling and long weekends away with their cherished friends. They also loved to travel to Florida to see their children and grandchildren.
She will be sadly missed by all who loved her. She had a strong faith in the Lord, and always went the extra mile for anyone in need.

Our family is very sad at her passing, especially on Mother’s Day. But we know the good Lord took her home that day because she did everything good in his eyes. And what better day to enter his kingdom with joy than on Mother’s Day.

May the Lord bless you and keep you Mom until we see you again. Love, Patti, Neil, Bobby and David
