5 Tributes for “Blanche M. Latvala

    My sympathy to Blanches family my mom Barb Wilson And my mother in law Pat Deneau were friends of her’s when they all lived in Riverside Manor. Very sad now as they are all gone. Maybe they are reunited in heaven. I hope so.

    With sincere sympathy in the loss of your mother & grandmother.
    Although, I didn’t know your mom that well. I have fond memories of my mom, Betty Nelson talking about her all the time. They worked together at the Veneer plant in Gladstone. She talked very highly of her daughter Pattie. Enjoy all your special memories & hold them close to your heart.♥️
