Venna Lee “Bennie” Blake passed from earth to heaven July 12, 2017.
She was 92 years old but would rarely admit it, even to family. She
was active, vibrant and healthy until suffering a massive stroke on
July 5, 2017.

Bennie was active in the community, serving at St John Vianney
church in Sedona as well as at the Museum of Northern Arizona.

She was a lover of the English language and taught creative writing
and English classes at Yavapai College. She was also a lover of
Sedona and the red rocks. Bennie was instrumental in preventing the
construction of a bridge at Red Rock Crossing, where she lived for
many years.

She will be missed by all who knew her. Heaven will never be the
same since her arrival there.
