Regina Blanchard-Lanoue


Regina Blanchard-Lanoue, age 59, of Cullowhee, N.C., passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 24, 2020, at home.

She was the wife of Robert Blanchard-Lanoue and the daughter of the late Leslie Blanchard and Bessie Blanchard.

She was best mother to a son any father could have asked for, including her husky, and a caring and loving soul who enjoyed caring for others more than herself.

She left behind her husband, Robert; loving mother, Bessie; sisters, Dana and Donna; as well as her son, Cory; and husky, Storm; along with nieces and nephews, cousins and extended family.

She was preceded in death by her father, Leslie.

Her favorite quote to him was “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.”

My mother’s wishes for me came true, and I served as her father did in the U.S. Navy. Because of her love and ability to see and show anyone’s potential, I became a better person, husband and most of all a better son. She is missed and has gone home to heaven. We love you Momma!!!

A private family graveside service will be held due to the current pandemic.

An online registry is available at

Appalachian Funeral Services of Sylva, N.C., is serving the family.
