HILL, Blanche Josephine
(nee Hoover)

“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints”

Blanche passed peacefully into the presence of her Lord Jesus at Fairhaven Long Term Care, Peterborough, ON on September 7, 2020 at the age of 95. Predeceased by her cherished husband Elmer. The loving and loved mother of Jo-Anne (Paul) Haydyn and Charles (Brenda) Hill. The proud grandmother of Joel Haydyn and Christina (Nathan) Phillips. Survived by her dear sister-in-law Arva Hill. Predeceased by her sister Doris Hoover and brothers- and sisters-in-law Herbert (Aleda) Hill, Leona (Alvin) Stevens, Hazel (Clifford) Etcher, Julia (Maurice) Hayden, James (Edith) Hill, Robert (Mary) Hill, Arden Hill. Remembered by many nieces and nephews.

Blanche was born in Gormley, lived in Markham township until her marriage and then moved to Providence Bay, Manitoulin Island. She and Elmer retired to Lindsay. Her last years were spent in Peterborough. Blanche graduated as a Registered Nurse from the Toronto General Hospital School for Nurses. She was the Senior Scrub Student Nurse for Dr. Gordon Murray's first blue baby surgery at that hospital. She worked at the Red Cross Hospital in Mindemoya for over 30 years. She was a life long member of the Evangelical Missionary Church, serving in many volunteer capacities. She was a member of the Gideons International in Canada for more than 50 years. Blanche enjoyed oil painting, gardening, sewing and playing the organ.
