Mom overcame much adversity in her life and her courage was an example for us all. Blanche spent a good deal of her life working at Nanaimo General Hospital, which gave her much satisfaction and fulfillment. She will be remembered fondly, for her good humour, love of a good joke and liked to poke fun right up until the end. Mom will be sorely missed.

Flowers gratefully declined. donations in memory may be made to the NRGH foundation.
