There are no graves with the surname Blume at the Mount McCaleb Cemetery in Mackay, Idaho. However, a Marion Blume recently died in Arco, Idaho. Here is her obituary:
Marion Francis Ann Williams Blume, 95, passed away at the Lost Rivers Living Center in Arco, Idaho, on August 16, 2003.

Born April 5, 1908, in Weiser, Idaho, she was the daughter of Willis and Eliza Cobb Williams. The family moved to the Lost River Valley when Marion was four, where she attended elementary school. She played on the girls’ basketball team at Mackay High School and graduated in 1927.

She married Lloyd L. Blume on July 3, 1928, in Challis. They lived at the Livingston Mine at the East Fork of the Salmon River in a tent that winter, and then moved to Lamoille, Nevada in 1929 to work for Lloyd’s stepfather, John McKinney.

Marion was active in the Little Church of the Crossroads in Lamoille and the Elko County CowBelles. She also was one of the founders and a charter member of the Lamoille Women’s Club, as well as a 4-H leader and canning superintendent at the Elko County Fair. She cooked at the Girl Scouts camp in Lamoille Canyon for several years, was active in the Northeastern Nevada Historical Society and Museum, and was proud to be honored as a lifetime member of the National Federation of Women’s Clubs of America.

The Blumes ranched and lived in Lamoille until the late 1960s. Upon retirement, they moved to the community of Lamoille, where Marion would fill in as postmistress when needed. Lloyd passed away in 1975.

Marion took Contract Bridge classes at Northeastern Nevada Community College in Elko with friend Ernie Westlund, and they played successfully in many Elko County Bridge tournaments.

Leaving her beloved Lamoille, and wanting to be closer to her birthplace and family, Marion moved back to Mackay in 1981. She was very active in the South Custer Historical Society, donating many hours at the museum and library. She was active as president of the Senior Citizens Center and a member of Ladies Aid and Birthday Club.

An event Marion talked about for many years was her float trip, at age 80. down the Salmon River during Idaho’s Centennial celebration.

Marion was a dedicated volunteer and loving friend, always offering help when needed, and she will be missed by her family and many friends.

Marion is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Joy and Stan Potts, 4 Redside Way, Shoup ID 83469, one son and daughter-in-law, Lloyd and Tammy Blume of Nevada; and four granddaughters, Kay (Jerry) Black of Buhl, Robyn (Jerry) Maxfield of Rupert, Stani (Chris) Malmgren of Carey, and Brandi Blume of Nevada. She also is survived by four grandchildren, Jay (Georgia) Black of Deeth, Nev., Jeny Black of LaGrande, Ore., Tim Maxfield of Logan, Utah, and Addie Maxfield of Rupert, Idaho. A highlight for Marion this past month was hugging and loving the newest member of her family, 2-month-old great-great granddaughter Jette Marie Black of Deeth, Nev. Marion also is survived by two sisters-in-law, Elvera Williams of Mackay and Barbara Ruttenbuer of Deerlodge, Mont., and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff at Lost Rivers Living Center in Arco for the love and care they showed Marion.

At Marion’s request, no formal service will be held. In her memory, contributions to the South Custer Historical Society and Museum in Mackay, Idaho, The Elko County Historical Society and Museum in Elko. Nev., or to the charity of your choice are suggestions the family recommends as a kind and loving way to remember and honor Marion Blume. Cremation was under the direction of Simpson-Marvel Memorial Chapel in Arco
