    Blanche was a wonderful woman. I had the joys of taking care of her at Moundveiw Extended Care Center and at Villa Pines. She always made you smile and even was a good listener. She cared about the residents and for us CNA’s. She will be greatly missed but atleast she is back with Jim. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

    I worked with Blanche at villa pines and she was such an amazing women. I couldn’t believe the news when I heard. She was always someone to cheer me up and to talk to and I loved hearing her stories. I’m sorry for your loss.

    I took care of Blanche when she was a resident at Villa Pines and I adored her. I loved to just sit and visit with her; she had a way about her to always make you laugh. She was a good person to go to if you needed some support, advice, or just a hug. I’ve thought about Blanche a lot over the 3 years since I’ve moved away and I’m so sorry to read about her passing. I’m sure Jim was thrilled to see Blanche come walking through those gates! Love and prayers to your family.
