Obituary of Mark Lynn Blessing

Please share a memory of Mark to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Mark Lynn Blessing was born on October 26, 1973, in Southfield, Michigan. He was one of two sons born to the union of Lee Blessing and Geraldine (Mushinsky) Blessing.  He attended Canton High School in Canton, Michigan. 

On August 18, 2010, in Westland, Michigan, Mark married the love of his life the former Ashley Coblentz.  The couple made their home with several feline companions.  Although Mark loved all his cats, he was most fond of Cass and Nami whom had grown to be his favorites.  Mark was a true handyman with a very generous heart.  He enjoyed working with his hands and seemed to have the ability to fix or build anything, from remodeling houses to freshening them up with paint.  When family and friends needed home repairs, Mark was more than happy to step up and lend a helping hand.  For the past year and a half, he was gainfully employed as a Crew Trainer for McDonalds in Monroe, Michigan. 

Mark was also an avid gardener.  He was quite proud of his prized rose bushes, and he enjoyed spending time in his yard tending to them or growing his vegetables.  Mark knew his way around the kitchen as well.  He loved to cook for all the holidays and family gatherings, but Thanksgiving dinner was by far his specialty. 

Mark Lynn Blessing, age 50 of Newport, Michigan passed away unexpectedly on Thursday; November 9, 2023, at his home.  His passing was preceded by his parents: Lee and Geraldine Blessing and his paternal and maternal grandparents.

To cherish his memory, he leaves a beloved wife of thirteen years: Ashley Nicole Blessing of Newport; a son: Sean Coblentz of Newport; a brother: Michael (Emily) Blessing of Marathon, Florida; his God parents: Ed and Oksun Blessing; and several aunts and uncles.

No public services are planned at this time.  Mark’s care has been entrusted to Merkle Funeral Service, North Monroe, 2442 North Monroe Street, Monroe, Michigan 48162 (734) 384-5185. Cremation has taken place through the on-site crematory, Covenant Cremation of Erie, Michigan
