Obituary of Blanche Y. Marchetti
Blanche Y. Marchetti (nee, Davis) passed from this life to be with God on Friday, December 17, 2021. Blanche, born September 14, 1935, grew up in Alabama where she met and married her high school sweetheart Ernest Marchetti.
They ultimately settled on Hilton Head Island where they raised three children and owned retail shoe stores where her flare for fashion mixed with his business sense combined to provide for the family many years. They eventually sold the stores and started a commercial real estate business. Blanche’s love of her family was exceeded only by her love of and devotion to God.
Blanche is preceded in death by her husband of 67 years, Ernest F. Marchetti, her parents John Roy Davis and Eunice Cone Davis, and her brother Roy Davis. She is survived by her brother Charles Kenneth Davis, three children Nina Schwalbe, Tony Marchetti, and Ernest F. Marchetti III and ten grandchildren.
