Blanche "Bee" Duquette Obituary
Blanche Mary Duquette (nee Blaskovich), age 98, beloved wife of the late Francis (Duke), loving mother of 14, passed away peacefully at her home on January 3, 2019. Bee was born in Chicago, lived in Hinsdale for 60 years, and retired to Sequim, WA before moving to Western Springs. She showed unconditional love for her husband, all her children and their spouses, her 33 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren. They, in return, adored her. She found happiness, hope, and strength in her attendance at daily Mass and in her daily prayers. After raising her family, Bee worked for Dryden Press, a subsidiary of CBS where she soon became a well-respected and award-winning employee. She was always up for any new adventure, even in her last few months. She loved Bingo, card games, travel, and was an accomplished fisherwoman. Bee is survived her sister, Mary Blaskovich, and was preceded in death by her parents and brother, Tony Blaskovich. Visitation will be held from 3-9 pm on Friday, January 11, at Adolf Funeral Home, 7000 S. Madison Street, Willowbrook.
