Blanche was predeceased by her husband, Norman Boyd, her son, Bruce Boyd, her son-in-law Doug Cassidy, and six brothers and five sisters. Mom will be lovingly remembered by her daughters, Evelyn (Murray) Stalker, Margie (late Doug) Cassidy, Meriam (David) Carriere, sons, Norman John (Donna), Basil, Terry (Carol), daughter-in-law Elaine Boyd, 22 grandchildren, 41 great-grandchildren and two2 great-great-grandchildren. Blanche was born in Rosedale, Manitoba to James and Jane Vann (nee Madill) the youngest of 12 children. It was there that she met Norman and they were married in l935. Blanche and Norman moved from the Rosedale area to Selkirk, Manitoba in 1942. Here they raised their seven children. Throughout the course of her lifetime, she not only cared for her seven children but she also worked outside the home in a number of jobs and finally retired from Shoppers Drug Mart in l983. The family would like to thank the staff at the Maples Personal Care Home for their many kindnesses and excellent care over the past four years. As per Mom's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be a private family interment at a later date. Gilbart Funeral Home, Selkirk in care of arrangements.
