Tonja Faye Blaschke

October 10, 1953 — October 28, 2023

Mooresville

 

Tonja Faye Blaschke, 70, of Mooresville, passed peacefully in the comfort of her home with family by her side on Saturday, October 28, 2023.  She was born in Indianapolis to the late Clarence “Tub” Burnside and Hazel Elizabeth (Mumaw) Burnside on October 10, 1953.

She graduated from Mooresville High School with the class of 1972.  The fall of the following year, she married the love of her life, Eddie Blaschke, on October 5, 1973.  Eddie and Tonja just celebrated 50 years of marriage earlier this month. 

Tonja was no stranger to hard work.  She began working when she was just 14 years old at Kelly’s Restaurant in Mooresville as a waitress and cook.  She worked for Duke Energy (formerly PSI) in building maintenance from 1991 until she retired in 2023.

She enjoyed crocheting and flower gardening.  Most importantly, she enjoyed the time spent with her family.  She regularly attended sporting events and other activities where she enjoyed supporting her children, grandchildren, and other family members.

Tonja will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by her family and friends including her husband, Eddie Blaschke of Mooresville; son, Eddie Blaschke II (wife, Mandy) of Mooresville; daughter, Brandi Willis (husband, Kevin) of Mooresville; sisters, Gail McClusky of Mooresville and Debi Turpin Burnside of Mooresville; 9 grandchildren; and 3 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Hazel Burnside; and sister, Melody Boles.
