Vera Kay Blandford, beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, peacefully passed away on September 9, 2023, at the age of 80. She was born on January 29, 1943, in Tyrrell County, North Carolina, and her passing occurred in Vanceboro, North Carolina.

Vera was a woman of simple pleasures and cherished the time spent with her loved ones. She had an unwavering love for animals and found joy in caring for them. Vera also enjoyed watching movies. Her faith played a significant role in her life, and she found solace in attending church regularly. Many will remember her delicious home-cooked meals and the warmth she brought to holiday gatherings with family and friends.

Vera is survived by her loving daughters, Linda Carter, Donna Elks, and Dorrie Foreman; her devoted sons, Kenneth Pollard and James Blandford; 18 grandchildren who brought immense joy to her life; and 26 great-grandchildren who were the light of her days.

    I lost touch with grandma Kay for some time and i regret that, but I was able to visit with her before she past and she was still so full of love and forgiveness. She enjoyed her family always loved to love on her grandkids and great grandkids. May her soul rest now and may God help us all through this time of grief. She would not want us to be sad but to support one another and make sure her family has love and support for each other. God Blessed us with her love for a long time now lets make her memory last for the rest of our lives.
