A Godly force. A woman with unshakeable faith. A light in the darkness. A prayer warrior. A wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and daughter of the Most High. MawMaw showed people how to love God, how to worship and she always had faith in others. Blanche left an impression on everyone she met. She was sweet with a side of firecracker. You could not count the times her family laughed until they cried because of something she did or said. A remarkable woman who loved like Jesus and lived her testimony of faith in her daily walk.
