She is survived by her sister, Edith (Kevin) Hanna, nephews Ryan and Ross (Becky) Hanna, niece Kelley Hanna, and great-niece Edison Hanna (and also her favourite dog-niece, Honey).

She enjoyed close friendships over the years, and was welcomed into many of their families. She enjoyed animals, kids, and nature.

Blanche trusted in God to give her strength and peace as she faced the hardships of life. She was very gentle, kind and compassionate, and enjoyed good jokes often. She will be missed by many.
