Blanche was a lovely woman, warm, helpful, and smart. She knew every square inch of the California Room at the San Bernardino Library. I was lucky to spend five years of working with her as a volunteer; I did not know her background then, as she didn't spend any time talking about herself. She was there to help others.
I am glad I was counted as a friend and she certainly fits well in "Immortal Nobodies." I surely won't forget her.
