Blanche will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by: her two sons, Gordon and Robert, her sister, Grace, her brother, Hartley, her four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, as well as many other family members and a multitude of friends. Blanche was born in Drumheller, AB on May 7, 1927. She graduated as a Nursing Aide in August 1952, and began her nursing career at the Drumheller Hospital. In August of 1954 she married Jacob Peter Dedul. Blanche’s passions were; her flower garden, knitting, crocheting, needlepoint and travelling (Sunday afternoon car rides were a staple). Thanks to her sister-in-law Bernice, she was able to enjoy a few more car rides before moving to Calgary. Blanche adored all children especially her own children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Blanche enjoyed company and nothing made her happier than to cook something special for them. The family would like to thank the staff at the Edgemont Retirement Center for all their added help, and to the wonderful staff at the Cedar Villa for going out of their way to make her last days comfortable.
