    Charlotte, Doug, Cal & Janie – we share in the sadness you feel with the passing of your dear Mum, even though a full 100 years to be loved by many and to share her love over and over, she is still your Mum and her physical presence will be missed I know. As a young girl, I knew your Mum well and my times in Hanley when you lived there were so much fun for this city kid to enjoy small town life. Our thoughts will be with you all as you celebrate and remember your dear Mum on the 20th. With each morning sunrise and sunset in the evening, may you all find it easier to remember the good and special times shared with your dear Mum.
    With love and comfort, Doug & Marilyn McLeay, Saskatoon

    All our condolences to anyody who was in her life or had her in thier life for she was a wonderful and funny person. Blanche was a part of our lives for a very, very long time and we miss her deeply, she was truly a special person. She always had treats under her fingers and when ever somebody asked her what her secret was to looking so good she said “coffee and chocolate”. Everybody misses her and she will always be remembered…
