It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved sister, aunt and friend, Marguerite LeBlanc, 76, of Sainte-Foy, Québec, on January 26, 2019, à la Maison Michel-Sarazzin in Québec.
Born in Moncton, NB, she was the daughter of the late Daniel (Damien) LeBlanc and the late Laudia (born LeBlanc) LeBlanc.
Prior to her retirement in 1997, she was a dedicated registered nurse at the Jeffery Hale Hospital for 27 years.
The energy, spirit and culture of Québec City were the perfect match for Marguerite and she adored living there for nearly 50 years.
Marguerite was an avid traveler and her passport was stamped from many exotic locations. Her home was filled with treasures from her adventures and her travel stories always made for lively dinner conversation.
Loved by all, Marguerite leaves behind to mourn cherished sister, Carmel Melanson; nephews and niece: Sylvio (Cristiana) LeBlanc, Lisette (Michel) Cormier and Dion LeBlanc; great nephew, Martin Cormier and great niece, Mylène Cormier and dear friends: Lise Lizotte, Lucille (Julien) Cormier and Christine (Jean) Payeur, among many others.
Predeceased by brothers: Raymond, George, and Norman LeBlanc.
Funeral mass will be celebrated on Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 2 pm in Saint-Félix Church, 1460 Provancher Street, Québec.
A Celebration of the Word will be held at the Chartersville Funeral Home Chapel, 363 Amirault Street, Dieppe, NB (857-1901) at a later date.
A special thank you to Dr. Catherine Doyle for her support during the last 10 years, staff from the CLSC, namely Martin Vézina who provided so much comfort, and everyone at la Maison Michel-Sarazzin for their exceptional compassion and care during the last few weeks.
Donations to la Maison Michel-Sarazzin 2101, chemin St-Louis, Québec (Québec), G1T 1P5 or the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated by the family.
