Blanche EBERT

EBERT, Blanche Irene (nee McRae). August 26, 1926 – April 24, 2014. Blanche died peacefully in her sleep at her home on April 24. Born in Bozman, Manitoba she had a sister Margaret, brother Sam, brother Lynds (shot down in WWII) and sister Jean who died in infancy. Predeceased by beloved husband Richard Daniel (Dan) Ebert who she married in 1949. Blanche is survived by son Daniel, daughter Laurie, son-in-law Rob and grandsons Daniel and Maxwell. Growing up in Westlock, Alberta during the depression had a lasting effect on Blanche. She never wasted anything. Post war she moved to New Westminster, BC, met Dan and began a 38 year love story. They enjoyed many trips together – road trips with the kids and later tours including Europe, Russia and Mexico. Dan died in 1986, Blanche was heartbroken but soon became self-sufficient. She still enjoyed travelling, now with Margaret and other new friends. Blanche was intelligent, independent and generous. She liked everything blue – her clothes, house, cars, etc. She was a long time resident of Maple Ridge and felt very supported by her community and her neighbours. Those who knew her will miss Blanche a lot. She lived well and just the way she wanted to. No service by request – A Celebration of Life will be held in Blanche’s honour.
