She was predeceased by her husband, Robert P. Pramis Sr.; her significant other, Elroy Mills; daughter, Donna Pramis; and brother, James Sawyer.

Blanche is survived by her sons, Richard Pramis of Portland, Robert Pramis Jr. of New Gloucester and David Archibald of Naples; daughters, Penni Lee of Gorham, Susan Sanborn of Standish and Risa Dennison of Buxton; sisters, Marilyn Hodgdon of Portland and Carol Hall of Windham; 18 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.

Visitation was held on Saturday, April 23, followed by a funeral service at the Dennett, Craig & Pate Funeral Home, located on the corners of Routes 202 and 4A (13 Portland Road) in Buxton (Bar Mills). Burial will be held on another date at Mayberry Cemetery in Windham.
