Ascension “Sonia” Blawatsky, 92, formerly of Havre, passed away peacefully at Livingston HelathCare on May 12, 2020.
A funeral mass at St. Judes Catholic Church will be held at a later date.
Ascension Nieto-Hernandez was born in Madrid, Spain in 1928 to Santiago Nieto and Ascension Hernandez, the oldest of four siblings. After completing school, she worked in Madrid for the telephone company. Eventually, she met her future husband, Vladimir Blawatsky, who was a foreign exchange student in Spain. They both emigrated to Canada and were blessed with three children. With an employment opportunity, Ascension and her family moved to Havre, Montana and had one more child. In Havre, Ascension worked for the former Sacred Heart Catholic Hospital and many years at the hot lunch program at St. Judes School. Her husband, parents, and siblings Santiago Nieto and Josephina Garcia-Nieto preceded her in death. She is survived by her sister, Isabel Nieto-Villa, children, Sonia, Nicholas, Elizabeth and John, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Our Mother had a heart of gold and she loved her husband, children and grandchildren fiercely. She flourished surviving war, immigration, cultures and languages. Our Mother loved life and was very social. She loved old movies, being with her friends, gardening, knitting, crocheting and loved a party. She was a great cook and wrote down recipes on any available piece of paper. She was brave and proud, fun and honest. She missed her Vladimiro till her last day. May the heavens burn a little brighter for their reunion.
Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory has been entrusted with arrangements.
