Sarah Rebecca Blankenship Darrell died on December 5, 2020. Becky was born in Maryville, Tennessee to the late Harry Edward Blankenship and Evelyn Barker Blankenship on November 18, 1944. She was graduated from the University of Tennessee (Phi Beta Kappa) with a bachelor’s degree in geology.

She served on the Board of Directors of Magnolia Cemetery for a number of years and was a member of the Blount County Genealogical and Historical Society. She contributed several articles to the Blount County Genealogical and Historical Society journal and contributed greatly to the level of knowledge regarding Black men who served in the Union Army and were buried in Blount County.
