  1. Our sympathy to all those who are grieving the loss of Blanche. Blanche was a second cousin to my grandmother and after she came to North Dakota we became acquainted… what fun we had together! She would come and stay with us and we’d play table games and tell stories and mostly I remember laughter. She endured many hardships in life and now she is at peace (and laughing that wonderful contagious laugh) in the presence of our Creator. God Bless the memory of Blanche.

  2. To Sharon and Dave

    I last saw Blanche a few years ago when my mom, Alice, and I visited her. I am sorry that we lost touch with you and Blanche, Sharon. Donna told me today of Blanche’s passing. If we had been in the area, we would have paid our respects at memorial. Blanche was always kind to us in trying times. I enjoyed her stories of north Dakota and of her life in general. I admired how she always looked so well groomed and pretty. She was a good person!

  3. We are so sorry hearing of Blanche’s passing..Our condolences to all of her family.. I missed showing my respect at her funeral,,but didnt know about this until a few days ago I am now sorry that I had not seen as much of her in the past couple of years…

  4. Our deepest sympathies to the family in the loss of your mother/grandmother! We are thankful for many great memories of Aunt Blanche while she lived in North Dakota – beautiful smile, awesome quilter, wonderful wife to Uncle Clarence, hospitable, great helper on the farm, persevered through various health issues. My mom, Marie Eggen, and Blanche were good friends. Last time we saw Blanche was when she returned to North Dakota for a nieces wedding, which was about 14 years ago. We’ve communicated through cards, letters and a few phone calls throughout the years. May sweet memories be a source of strength for you in the future. God Bless!

  5. We extend to you our deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mom-Blanche. Blanche and I became acquainted through my friend Clarence many years ago. I have been the renter of Clarence and Blanch’es land since the 60’s. Blanche was an amazing and talented special lady. We talked often on the phone when she moved back to BC. I enjoyed many delicious meals and cups of coffee with Blanche and Clarence. Hope it helps to know that many thoughtful thoughts are with you and your family.
    Friends, Ruben and Bea Olson
