It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Blanche Two Horns. We were fortunate to have our mother, grandmother, companion, sister, auntie, niece and friend for fifty one years.
Blanche lived life taking care of her children and her mother. She enjoyed spending time with family, friends and Mandel, especially being with her grandchildren and talking on the phone. Along with her silly, caring, compassionate nature she always had a smile for all who came into her presence. She made her Cursillo in 2008 with her theme song “Amazing Grace”.
