 Blanche loved her family very much. She would give you the shirt off her back. Every year for the holidays she would make crackers and peanut brittle that everyone looked forward to every year!! If you had either one of them from her then you know what we are talking about!!  She had an immense love for Mickey Mouse that will be carried on for generations to come.

A celebration of life will be held at a future date.
