We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Hughes Funeral Home
When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
Blanche G. McMullen was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on May 17th, 1937 to parents Claudia and Junior Thomas. She had one brother, Louis Thomas (Jean), and they grew up in Princeton, New Jersey. She graduated from Princeton High School. She married the love of her life, Francis Albert McMullen, in October of 1957 and moved to Trenton shortly thereafter.
She was a resident of the city of Trenton for over 60 years. Together Blanche and "Albie" had seven children; Wayne, Michael, Garnet (Gloria), Karen, Francis, Jr. (Janine), Anthony (Sherri) and Thomas (Kimberly). They were happily married for 58 years and left a mountain of legacies.
Throughout her life, Blanche was a hard worker and a faithful Christian. She was baptized into Mt. Sinai Seventh Day Adventist Church over 40 years ago by Pastor Weatherford. During this time, she served the church as a deaconess, was on the usher board and assisted with many other endeavors. She worked for Ewing Public Schools, first as a custodian. Eventually she became a paraprofessional, working with special needs students until her retirement in 2004.
Mrs. McMullen is well known for her generous spirit and kindheartedness. In her spare time, she was often seen crocheting for loved ones or charity. She showed love to everyone she would meet, offering them a warm meal, cool drink and, at times, even a home and a family.
Blanche is predeceased by her husband, Francis McMullen, both parents, and her brother Louis Thomas.
She is survived by her seven children, her sister-in-law (lean Thomas); 14 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren and a host of bonus children and honorary grandchildren. She will be remembered lovingly by all.
