  Mrs. Blazevich,  age 86, of Nashville,TN  formerly of White Bluff, TN died Saturday, October 31, 2015 at NHC .
  Growing up she was known  as  Lorelle "Penny" Hall. She lived in Chicago, IL before moving back to Bellevue. She was the widow of the late George Blazevich.
  She was born in White Bluff, TN in 1929 in Taylor Town on Taylor Town Road by the late Dr. Spencer, daughter of the late Lecy Farris and Vivian Estelle Gentry Hall.  She attended the Taylor Town School, which had one teacher teaching all eight grades. Penny recalled three teachers, Miss Eleazer, Mr. Lester Ellis and Miss Sadie Bibb, and students later attended the William James High School to finish their education. She was a proud member of the Red Hat Society and received the Doug Underwood Service Award in 1999 from the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce for her efforts in helping starting Fifty Foward, YMCA and W.O.N.S. (West of Nashville Seniors) for the Bellevue Community. At an early age she started attending the Pleasant View Church of Christ, where her grandfather was an elder. She remained a member of the Church of Christ for her lifetime. Penny retired from Kraft, formerly Phillip Morris and formerly General Foods, where she worked in quality control. She loved White Bluff,TN and Dickson County. She shared her memories as a young girl growing up in White Bluff, TN  in the book "Memories of White Bluff" by Dorothy Blazevich (Lorelle "Penny" Hall).  Penny shared her beautiful smile with everyone she came in contact with. She never met a stranger and  one would always know her presence when she entered a room with her striking appearance.   She loved people and could and would strike up a conversation anywhere at anytime. She made friends so easy...and always had that ability to make one feel very special.
   She is survived by her son, David Swaw and his wife, Armenda of White Bluff,TN; her daughter, Linda Faye Springer and her husband, Charlie of Dickson,TN, her brother, William H. "Sonny" Hall and his wife, Ruth of Dickson,TN, her four grandchildren, Alicia Springer, Trisha Bilbrey, Trina Springer and Jacob Swaw; Several nieces and nephews.
