Obituary for VENESSA MARIE BLAKE
Venessa Marie Blake was born on September 7, 1955 to the late Leroy and Lou Ruth Blake of Calvert County, MD. On March 5, 201 2, after a sudden illness and with her loving family at her side, God took Venessa to her heavenly home. She was preceded in death by two brothers, Lloyd Paul Blake and Lowell Frederick Blake. Venessa was blessed with a beautiful and loving daughter, Felisha A. Taylor and two grandchildren, Dayshaun Ablonczy and Brandee Hall, whom she adored. During her childhood and early adulthood Venessa attended Eastern United Methodist Church in Lusby, MD. She is presently a faithful member of Greater Bibleway Church in Prince Frederick, MD. Venessa enjoyed worshipping with her church family and her faith was greatly strengthened by her fellowship with them. She enjoyed listening to family members, especially her Mom, sing hymns; and when the Spirit would fill her, with a loud bellow she would sing out above them all. Venessa's hobbies were spending valuable time with her daughter Felisha. She also held dear the time she spent with her adorable grandchildren Dayshaun and Brandee. She loved cooking, listening to music, taking pictures, shopping and decorating her home; which she did with the utmost elegance and design. Venessa was a graduate of the Calvert County School System. Shortly after graduation she was hired at the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington, DC. She also worked at several healthcare facilities. She had a true love of caring for others. Her greatest accomplishments were: wonderful mother, grandmother and homemaker. Venessa's trademark was her enormous and beautiful smile with which she greeted everyone she met. Venessa is survived by her daughter, Felisha Taylor; two grandchildren, Dayshaun Ablonczy and Brandee Hall; three sisters, Philis Hurley (Wilbur), Dianette Johnson (Vaughn), and Elaine Blake; one brother, Leroy F.
