Miss Blanche L. Hawks - KEUKA PARK - Miss Blanche L. Hawks, 85, died last night at the home of Mrs. Mona Barrus in Keuka Park. At the time of her death, she was the oldest living graduate of Keuka College, Class of 1903.

There will be a memorial service at 3 p.m. Thursday at the Norton Chapel, Keuka College, with the Rev. Charles Wallis officiating.  Private burial will be in the family plot at Keuka Park Cemetery. Funeral  arrangements are with the Weldon Funeral Home, Penn Yan.

Miss Hawks was born in Springville, the daughter of the late Seth and Lucelia Stanbro Hawks.  When her mother died in 1892, she came to live with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Stanbro at Keuka Park.  She was also a graduate of the New York State Library College and served 40 years in library science, first in the Public Library System in New York City and later in research and cataloguing at the University of Illinois and the University of Wisconsin.
