Blanche Muriel Ellen Randall
Passed away on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 in Indian Head, SK. Predeceased by her parents, Charles and Agnes (Lane) Treble of Fillmore, her loving husband, Kenneth, her brother Arnold Treble, her brothers-in-law John, Elton and Wilmer Randall, her sisters- in-law Margaret (Eadie) Treble and Pearl (Smithburg) Randall and a niece Donna (Randall) Satchell. Survived and will be sadly missed by her only child, Beverley Royer (husband Yvon), her two precious grandchildren, Travis and Janeesa, all of Delta, BC, and a nephew Gordon (Rebecca) Randall. Service will be held on Saturday, October 14 at 2 p.m. at St. Andrew's United Church, Indian Head. Blanche was fiercely independent, remaining in her own home until her death at 99 years, receiving "home care" for only nine days prior to her death. Blanche attended Huronville School and then went to Fillmore High School for Grades 11 and 12. She graduated from Saskatoon City Hospital as an RN in 1943. She then went on to the University of BC where she completed training to become a public health nurse. She met her future husband in the course of her work when she went to see him about poor water conditions in a school in the Maple Creek area. As he liked to say, she kept after him ever since. They were married in 1948 and lived in the communities of Wood Mountain, Constance, Chaplin and Indian Head, SK. After retirement, they also lived in Aldergrove, BC for seven years. They soon returned to their beloved Saskatchewan to live out their lives in Indian Head. Blanche was always involved in the communities in which she lived. She was a member of the Eastern Star, UCW, curling club, Indian Head golf club and Indian Head Heritage Club. She was the "Welcome Wagon" hostess in Indian Head for many years, helped at the "well-baby clinics", delivered "meals on wheels" and was a CGIT leader. She led an active life, playing softball at the catcher's position as a young woman and golfing in to her 90s. She spent many happy hours at the Heritage Club, carpet bowling and playing cards. Until her last days, she was an avid cribbage player. Special thanks to Lani Antoine, RN, Indian Head home care staff, her friends at the Heritage Club and Brooks Manor and Dr. Zimmerman for his care over the years. In lieu of flowers, Blanche requested that you make a donation to a charity of your choice.
