Earlene will always be remembered by her children, John Richard Bliss Jr., Jennifer Bliss Kaufman (Peter), and Mary Ellen Bliss (Michelle), as a caring, loving mother who was always there for them in times of need. She will also be remembered as a ray of sunshine in the lives of her grandchildren: Molly Kaufman, Noah Kaufman, Jack Kaufman, Luke Kaufman, Mia Bliss-Trotter, and Nathan Trotter. Last, but not least, she will be remembered by her husband, John Richard Bliss, as a supportive, precious mate for fifty-nine years. Earlene was predeceased by her mother, Myrtle Scarce; her father, Early Scarce; and four brothers, Harry, Ruben, Harold, and Ray. Her passions in life were her family, especially her grandchildren; vacations at the beach; genealogy; reading; decorating her house and herself for the holidays; and especially her longtime friends, Gracie Lee and Deloris Thomasson.
