August 9, 2017

Our best friend Dorena Rae Blanchard, 48, of Glasgow, Mont., passed away unexpectedly at home on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017.

The family viewing will be held Friday, Aug. 11, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Bell Mortuary. Services will be held Saturday, Aug. 12, at 11 a.m., at the Evangelical Church in Glasgow, followed by burial at the Highland Cemetery where she will be laid to rest next to her mother. Her family invites all that loved her to join them for the ceremony. Following the burial, a reception will be held at the Evangelical Church. All are welcome to swap stories and celebrate her amazing life.

She was born April 9, 1969, in Glasgow to Myron and Helen (Nelson) Blanchard. She graduated from Glasgow High School in 1987. She then attended UND-Williston and graduated in 1989 with her associates in interior design.

She was soon blessed with four children, who became her entire world. There is nothing she wouldn't do for her children. Anyone could attest to that. She was the most caring, kind and loyal friend anyone could ever ask for. She was an even more incredible mother and best friend. She had so much patience, compassion and forgiveness towards everyone she crossed paths with. She had one of the truest hearts which she wore on her sleeve.

She had many things she enjoyed doing, work being one of them. She always worked hard and was always happy to be doing it. Her warm and caring smile will truly be missed by all that knew her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Helen and Myron Blanchard; her second family, Iris Grandchamp, Robert "Bobby Jo" Joseph Grandchamp Sr., Robert "Lil' Bob" Joseph Grandchamp Jr .; her grandma, Mabel, grandpa, Burt; and numerous aunts, uncles and friends.

Survivors include two daughters: Brittany Anne and Elena June Grandchamp, two sons, Ryan Joesph and Robbie "Robert" Joseph Grandchamp III; her loving sister, Georgie Kulczyk, and her kids, Parker and Jordan; along with many cherished family members and friends.
