Print Obituary print this page

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Antoinette LeBlanc, 99, of Moncton, on Sunday November 14, 2021 at Hospice Southeast New Brunswick (Albert House). Born in Moncton, she was the daughter of the late Thaddée and Yvonne (LeBlanc) Léger.

Having graduated from nursing in 1943, Antoinette practiced at the Hôtel Dieu de l’Assomption hospital. She was a past member of the Beauséjour Curling Club, and acted as team skip for many years. She was also a long-time member of Les Dames d’Acadie.

Since her very early years, she spent most summers at Cap Bimet, and in later years her winters at St. Petersburg, Florida. She enjoyed playing cards, especially bridge and travelled extensively.

But Antoinette’s true passion was her family, and she was always at her happiest with a full table filled with family and friends for Sunday suppers.

Antoinette is survived by her daughter, Denise Morrison (Bill); her sons: Georges, Pierre (Rose), and Marc (Mireille Godin); her grandchildren: Kristine Crann (Jeffrey), Julien LeBlanc (Elyse Hinse), and Rachel LeBlanc (Charles Liikson); her great-grandchildren: Alexandra, Malcolm, Gabriel, and Alexis; also Marc’s daughter by marriage, Brigitte Julien (Shane Thomson), and great-grandsons: Vincent and Benjamin; her step-daughters: Renette, Joanne, and Lise as well as her step-grandchildren of the Bourgeois family; her sisters-in-laws: Freda Léger, Sister Marie Cécile LeBlanc n.d.s.c., and Marguerite LeBlanc; as well as many nieces, nephews, and her friends from Residence Moncton. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

Antoinette was predeceased by her first husband, Sifroi LeBlanc (1989); her second husband, René Bourgeois (2016); sister, Huberte; brothers: Eugène, Arthur, and Dollard.

Antoinette’s family wishes to sincerely thank Residence Moncton for their excellent care in the last few years, as well as the staff of NB Extra-Mural, palliative care unit at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont UHC, and Albert House (Hospice SENB) for their presence and care in her last weeks.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (858-1900) Tuesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm and Wednesday from 10 am until time of departure (10:45). The funeral mass will be celebrated at Christ-Roi R.C. Church, 300 Dominion Street, Moncton, on Wednesday November 17 at 11 am. Face covering is mandatory, and proof of vaccination and government issued identification card are required to enter the funeral centre. The funeral mass will be videotaped, and the video will be available on her obituary on our Website at the end of the day. Interment will be in Our Lady of Calvary cemetery in Dieppe. In memory of Antoinette, a contribution to Hospice Southeast New Brunswick (Albert House) would be appreciated.
