Marie Poole Blanck
Born August 1, 1894 in Brooklyn, New York
Died December 21, 1955 at Saint Joseph's Hospital in Paterson, NJ, age 61 years

Father: Joseph H. Poole (1864- )
Mother: Helena (Zior) Poole (1861- )
Spouse: Otto J. Blanck (1891-1968)

Cause of death: Cerebral Hemorrhage

By 1935, Otto and Marie were living at 216 Van Avenue in Pompton Lakes, New Jersey. Otto was working as a superintendent for the Colonial Theater in Pompton Lakes. Marie was a practical nurse. She was also a member of the Pompton Lakes Order of the Eastern Star, a Masonic unit open to both men and women. On December 21, 1955, Marie was Christmas shopping at a department store in nearby Paterson when she suffered a stroke and died a few hours later at Saint Joseph's Hospital in Paterson. She was 61 years old.

An autopsy was performed to show she died from a cerebral hemorrhage, probably due to hypertension cardiovascular disease. Hypertension cardiovascular disease refers to heart conditions caused by high blood pressure. The heart works under increased pressure causing some different heart disorders, including heart failure, thickening of the heart muscle, coronary artery disease, and other conditions.

Cerebral hemorrhage is a type of intracranial bleeding that occurs within the brain tissue or ventricles. Symptoms can include headache, one-sided weakness, vomiting, seizures, decreased level of consciousness, and neck stiffness. Often symptoms get worse over time.

Marie was buried on Christmas Eve at the Pompton Reformed Church Cemetery in Pompton Lakes. Otto died on November 18, 1968 in Pompton Lakes at the age of 77. He is buried with Marie.
