Billie Ophelia Blinn, passed away in her sleep Monday October 22nd at her home in Coronado, California.
Billie was beloved by all who knew her and by her surviving
family. She will be dearly missed. Born Billie Ophelia Tobin in Shreveport Louisiana in 1928 she relocated to Pasadena, California with her mother when she was a toddler. Billie grew up with her mother and two sisters, Barbara and Beverly. She attended Pasadena Jr. College (now Pasadena City College) where she met Robert M. Blinn whom she wed in 1948, following his return from the Pacific War. Together they had three sons, Robert, David and James. She moved to Coronado in 1985 where she was a hospice in-home care provider for many years providing companionship and comfort to members of many of Coronado's prominent families.
She is survived by her three sons, Robert Blinn III of Imperial Beach, David Blinn of Coronado, and James Blinn of Mt. Helix, as well as their father Robert M. Blinn of Coronado and her sister Beverly Welsh of Mt. Helix and two grand-daughters, Zoe and Jordan Blinn of Mt. Helix.
At her request no services will be held. Those who wish to show their respects may do so by giving a donation in Billie's name to San Diego Sharp Hospice. God bless Billie Blinn.
