I had known Blanche for many years in the Dog Show world, and as her Dog Groomer. She was a great lady. Aslo if you ever watch the movies "A League of their own" she was one of the original ladies who played on that womens ball team....Donna Blews-Pappas

If this is the Miss Schacter that was a gym teacher at Midwood H.S., then I would like to offer my condolences to her family as I remember her well - almost 50 years later!!! As a teacher she was a wonderful individual who won the hearts of her students...even if she did insist that girls had to play basketball by some inane "girl's rules"!!! (Only the "rover" could cross the midline of the court!!, and every shot had to be taken from behind the foul line!!) Nonetheless, she left behind fond memories!

May her memory be for a blessing.

Blanche was our neighbor down the street. I always got a kick out of her hanging out of her window to say 'hello'! She was quite the character and a good neighbor! The Wright Family
