Blanca was employed by Western Publishing for 38 years, retiring in 1999. It was there she met her best friend and husband of 32 years, John Morrow. They married on Feb. 1, 1984, and they were inseparable. Blanca described her time with John as the best time of her life. They looked forward to their daily walks in their neighborhood of 38 years, which was filled with friendly hellos between neighbors and friends.

Blanca taught herself to sew, knit and crochet. She would knit kids’ hats & scarves all year and donate them before it got cold. If a baby was on the way, they were blessed with a blanket, handmade with love, from Blanca. She loved cooking and baking for family and friends, and her family and friends loved her cooking! Donald Duck was one of her most favorite things. She had hundreds of stuffed animals and figurines.

Surviving is her daughter, Rose (Tim) Divan, of Delavan, Wis.; four grandchildren, April Bosworth, of Wyalusing, Wis., Andy (Hannah Romero) Bosworth, of Delavan, Jasmine Trevino, and Jeremiah Vallin, both of Racine; five great-grandchildren, Camrin, Bianca, Avery, Julius, and Emiliano; and brother, Bob Villarreal, of Albuquerque, N.M. Her nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends also survive her.

In addition to her parents, Blanca was preceded in death by her husband, John Morrow; daughter, Blanca Azucena “Sue” Gonzales; and five sisters, Olga, Armie, Aurora, Rose, and Mary Lou, and brother, Chema.


Relatives and friends are welcome to meet at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 27, 2023, at the Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery, in the town of Dover.

At last, Blanca & John are together again.
