It is with much sadness to inform you that Blanche Herron Chambers, our Senior Past Grand Matron passed away on Monday, July 26th after struggling the last few days with heart failure and shutdown of her kidneys. Her family was with her throughout the last few days including her daughter, son, grandson and great-grandson. Although sleeping most of the time, Blanche held on as long as she could and once upon awaking yesterday, ever so slightly she told her daughter Virginia “I’m trying”. It is believed she was trying to make it to her 100th birthday in November, but it just wasn’t meant to be.
Blanche’s Services will be Monday, August 2nd, at 1 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Walla Walla and the graveside service will in Pomeroy at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, followed by a light lunch and social gathering at the St. Peters Episcopal Church Parish Hall.
If you wish to send cards, the addresses of Blanche’s daughter Virginia and son Tom are as follows.
