George Jacob Blatner died peacefully at his home in Northeast Portland on Nov. 10. A rosary will be recited at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at Zellers Chapel of the Roses.  The funeral Mass will be at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 18 at Holy Rosary Church.

Mr. Blatner was born Sept. 26, 1921, in Sterling Colorado, to Ernest and Anna Blatner.  When he was a child the family moved to Portland where he attended Immaculate Heart Grade School, Jefferson High School. He graduated from the University of Portland with a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts.

He served in the U.S. Army during World War II and saw action in Europe.

In 1952 he married Martha Haspert.  They lived in Lebanon, Oregon, where George worked in the sawmills.  Later they moved to Portland where George was employed by the State of Oregon as a parole and probation officer/supervisor.

After retiring he became an avid gardener, loved playing handball, volunteered for the St. Vincent DePaul Society, and spent time with his family and friends.  He was a kind man with a great sense of humor and will be greatly missed.

George is survived by his children, Elizabeth (Daniel) Reilly, Jean Blatner, John (Loretta) Blatner, Anne Blatner, Michael (Mary Rose) Blatner, Charles (Maureen) Blatner, 16 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and brother Ernest Blatner.  He was preceded in death by his wife, his brother Joseph, and sisters Margaret and Ann.

In lieu of flowers please send donations to St Vincent DePaul.
