Blanche Mary Sager, 82, beloved wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away April 16, 1994 at her home in Midvale.

For the last 23 years of a wonderful 53 year marriage, Blanche took care of and helped give the will to live to her beloved husband, Elmo, who suffered a major stroke in 1965. An active member of the LDS Church, she served as ward and stake Relief Society President, 35 years in the Primary and 50 proud years as a visiting teacher. Blanche loved her yard and garden and was gifted in the art of ceramics. Graduate of Spanish Fork High School and BYU, taught in the Jordan School District for over three decades. She was a kind and compassionate friend and neighbor, always having time to help others or give a word of cheer. In our family, she was the person we turned to as an example of love, courage and strength. Mom, we love you. You will be greatly missed.
