Blanche worked for a short time at the paper mill in Miamisburg, OH. She also worked as a Caregiver. Her family was her number one priority in life. She enjoyed visiting with her family, gardening, writing songs, singing and cooking. One of her favorite things to do was see how people reacted to how fabulous her cooking was. Blanche could make anything taste good. She also took pleasure in reading her bible and discussing her faith in the Lord.
Private services will be conducted. Warren F. Toler Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
