1927 - 2014 Obituary Condolences Gallery
Wauneeta (Neta) Blum, 86, passed away after a brief illness surrounded by her adoring family February 18, 2014. Visitation 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at McGilley George Funeral Home, 12913 Grandview Rd, Grandview, Mo. Wauneeta requested no formal service. A family graveside burial will be held at a later date in Knob Noster, Mo. Wauneeta was born in Knob Noster in 1927. She married her childhood sweetheart in 1943 and moved to Kansas City, Mo., after World War II. She was a homemaker and a den mother before entering the workforce as a secretary for Avon Products. The family moved to Grandview in 1967. She retired from Avon in 1987. She was an avid golfer, playing in several women's leagues over the years where she made two holes in one - something she would never personally brag about. She also enjoyed playing bridge and reading. Wauneeta was kind and considerate to everyone, and she will be sincerely missed by friends and family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Calvin Elliott and Ruby Mae Foster (Busby) and her brother, Calvin Willis Foster. Wauneeta is survived by her loving husband of 70 years, Bill, and three children, Richard Blum (Susan), Susan Boydston (Mike), and Linda Byrant (Gil Heislen); seven grandchildren, Karen Greenwoood (Chris), Mark Boydston, Cheryl Blum, James Blum, Rob Boydston (Kate Jennings), Cassi Patchen (Derek), and Dallas Bryant (Kayla); and five great grandchildren, Grant Greenwood, Savannah Blum, Elizabeth Patchen, Reid Boydston, and Cameron Bryant. The family gives special thanks and love to caregivers, Ollie and Joanne.
