Blanche leaves a large number of nieces, nephews and friends who she loved dearly.

The family would like to thank the long term care staff at the Notre Dame Bay Memorial Health Centre. An extra thank you to Cindy Drover for keeping Mom/Nan company when we could not. That meant more to us than you will ever know.

In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our families and our community continues to be our highest priority. At this time, there will be a private family service followed with burial at the Salvation Army Cemetery, Ragged Point.  Donations can be made to the Twillingate Salvation Army Cemetery Fund. Flowers are welcome, as Blanche loved her flowers.
