  6. My condolonces to Blanche’s family. I am a fellow retiree from RTC. & Pioneer. Her service to the Rochester area & the Telephone Pioneer Orginization were much appreciated, I just saw her at the breakfast in June at Inn On The Lake in Canandaigua,NY. She will be missed by all.

  7. My thoughts and prayer are with Blanche’s family and friends as they go through this difficult time. Blanche was a very kind person who loved to joke around with you, she will be missed by many.

  8. My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Johnson family. Blanche was a great lady. I knew for over 40 years! The fact is , Blanche ‘hired’ me to be in her ofc. DSA(Dial Service Assistance)on Fitzhugh St, back in Apr. 1968!! She was a very good boss. She was my 1st ‘CHIEF OPERATOR’.. RTC was certainly lucky to have such a dedicated and hard working employee . She set rules and you followed them. You were there to work NOT play while in the operator office . Her dedication to the the Pioneers will always be remembered too. RIP Blanche, Instead of Hello it is now ‘HALO’ !!

  9. To Blanche’s family. I work with the volunteer Pioneers and knew Blanche from here at Frontier. Blanche was sweet, funny and caring person and will be missed very much. May God comfort your family at this time of need. Sincerely,
    Susan Bovenzi
