Blanche was the middle child of Angus and Delia (Fortin) Lajambe, born in Cornwall, Ontario in 1898. Her birth record and the 1901 and 1911 censuses spelled the family surname as Lashamb, but from the 1921 census onward, the name is spelled as Lajambe. Similarly, Blanche is only listed as Corrine in the 1901 census. She seems to have preferred to go by her middle name of Blanche. Blanche married Charles Dansereau in 1923. According to a member of her husband's family, her nickname was "Peanut". Blanche and Charles did not have any children. She died in Montreal at the age of 80 in 1978.
