Blanche was born October 15, 1943, in Hardin, Texas. She attended Hardin High School and graduated in 1962, before beginning her career as a banker with First State Bank of Liberty, where she held several positions. In the early 1980s, Blanche transferred to First National Bank of Dayton and later retired as a vice president in 2002.

Blanche was preceded in death by her parents Clifford and Laura Shauberger; brothers Eugene, Gleason, James, and Donald Ray Shauberger; sisters Gertrude Ainsworth and Letha Rives; and son Jason Hargraves.

Blanche made many friends during her life, including her best friend, Linda Swearingen. Always cheerful with a contagious laugh, Blanche never met a stranger and, if you became her friend, you became family. She was the matriarch of the Shauberger family and enjoyed every family gathering. Blanche was a loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Blanche will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
