Ada Vera Blanchard passed away peacefully, at Seaforth Long Term Care Home, on Wednesday, July 24, 2019. Throughout her 91 years among us, Ada was a source of love, caring and faith within the circle of her family, friends and community.
Ada will be lovingly remembered by her children Julia Stewart of Clinton, Ron Blanchard and Laurie Finch of Seaforth, John and Susan Blanchard of Seaforth, Debbie and Hank Van Galen of Woodstock and Frances Rowley of London. Cherishing memories of a much loved grandma are many grandchildren, great grandchildren, great, great grandchildren and countless others that Ada and Gordon took under their wings as foster parents. Left to reminisce days gone by are her brother John Nichol and brother-in-law Ben Gibson. Ada will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.
In faith, we trust that Ada’s spirit is reunited in eternal life with her husband Gordon (2015), their infant son Charles Blanchard, her parents William and Ada (née Hooper) Nichol, granddaughter Bethany Blanchard, grandson Benjamin Van Galen, and many siblings and siblings-in-law.
