Certain people have no need for a last name: Elvis, Cher, Oprah. I have to put Blanche in that same category. She was a familiar face all around Vernon. She worked at the Schoolhouse Grocery, our general store (our only store actually) so if you needed gas or milk or a movie rental, chances are you were going to get it from Blanche. She was a beloved figure and always up for a laugh or a good story. Blanche passed away last year and we wanted to remember her everytime we went to the Schoolhouse. Douglas, Brian and Manjula planted a lilac tree in her honor in front of the General Store. We send our best wishes to Blanche's daughter LeeAnn and her family. Blanche was truly a one of kind and we miss her.
