Blanche was known as a very caring and compassionate person. In her early years, she attended Halifax School for the Blind.

The family would like to thank the staff at Debert Court for their amazing care during Blanche’s time there. A special thank you to Linda Morash as well, for the years of friendship she gave Blanche.
