In Loving Memory Of
Florence Emilie (Babin) Leger
1938 - 2024

Moncton, NB – Florence Emilie (Babin) Leger, 85, passed away peacefully at the Moncton City Hospital with family by her side on Wednesday, July 3rd, 2024.

She was a stay-at-home mom, and a loving wife to Ralph. As her children got older, she worked in the cafeteria at Mathieu Martin High School.

Florence was full of life and always up for something new. She loved to bowl and play darts. She was a goal tender for her broom ball team back in the day.

Everyone who knew her loved her. She really enjoyed going on Facebook to see family and friends, and their kids and grandkids. She always had a smile and a touch or hug for everyone, even if she didn’t know you.

She loved travelling and got to see all the Canadian provinces, most of the USA, and even spent time in Dubai with family.

Florence is survived by her three children: Susan Melanson (Herman) of Caissie Cape, Brian Leger of Riverview, and Sherry Leger (Dale Ward) of Rexton. Also, by her three sisters: Janet Babin of Moncton, Carol Babin of Dieppe, and Francine Babineau (Raymond) of Notre Dame; one brother: Paul Babin (Bernadette) of Dieppe; four grandchildren: Joey, Marc, Shawn, and Jennifer; five great grandchildren; Starr, Nikita, Lexxi, Brayden, and Brooklyn.

She was predeceased by her husband Ralph Leger; her brother: George Babin, her parents: Aline Babin (Richard), and Eustache “Maggie” Babin.

A very special thank you to all the nurses of the family medicine and palliative care units. She loved you all. An extra special thank you to Dr. Jason MacDonald -geriatrician, Dr. Fekhar, Dr. Comeau, Dr. Mansfield and many more.

Visitation will be held at Passage-Chartersville, 363 Amirault Street, Dieppe, NB E1A 1G1, (506) 857-1901, on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, from 2pm until 3:50pm.

  6. Thinking of the “Babin Family” at this sad time. Our sincere sympathies on behalf of the “Bourgeois Family” from the Gauvin Road. Florence was Helene’s (87 in August) age and they chummed around together. Fond memories of days gone bye…those were memorable days …. we did not have much, but we were happy. We did not know how lucky we were to have great neighbors and friends.
    Florence will be looking over the remaining family members from above. A sad time, but “time waits for no one!”
    The Bourgeois Family extends their sympathies. Helene, Marguerite, Yvonne, Lorraine, Raymond, Mike.

  17. Our deepest condolences for your loss. When I was in touch with her, when I was making a family book (Philias Babin A Family’s Story) in 2018-2020 she was full of information and memories of The Babin clan. Always had nice thing to say about everyone.
    Her Aunt Exelda (Babin) Allain was in touch with her often throughout the years and will miss her very much. There was about a 10-year difference between them and always had a lot to talk about spending hours on the phone.
    Florence will be missed by us all.
    Exelda, Paul, Diane and family
