The state of West Virginia lost a great public servant on Wednesday. Thais Blatnik died at the age of 96.
Thais served 16 years in the state house and senate chambers.
She was passionate about helping kids and fought for women’s rights.
Her love of Wheeling always shined through, but it was her love of family that stands out for us here at 7News that interviewed her so many times throughout her years of service.
Funeral Arrangements are from 2-5 at Altmeyer Funeral Home on Eoff Street in Wheeling Friday, with services starting at 5 .
