Life Story

Blanche J. Szott, 97, formerly of Lewiston, passed away peacefully on December 23, 2015, at the Ledgeview Living Center in West Paris, where she had been a resident for the past several years. Born in Lewiston on February 10, 1918, she was the daughter of Michael and Tekla Krason Szott. Educated locally, she was a graduate of Lewiston High School, Class of ’36, and also attended the Richard School of Gregg Shorthand. She was employed as a stenographer in the Marketing and Sales Department of the Maine Central Railroad, subsequently Guilford Transportation Industries, Portland, for nearly thirty years. After her retirement, she returned to Lewiston in 1985. A member of the former St. Patrick’s Church, she is survived by several nieces and nephews. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by a brother, Henry Szott, who passed away in 2013. Blanche was always a very kind and generous person, and never had a bad word to say about anyone. She will be greatly missed.
