Dieppe, N.-B – It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Hectorine Cormier, 91, that occurred on August 23rd, 2023, at the Foyer Notre-Dame-du-Sacrée-Coeur in Dieppe surrounded by her loving children.
Born in Sainte-Marie-de-Kent, NB, she was the daughter of the late Edouard LeBlanc and the late Alma (Cormier) LeBlanc.
Hectorine was employed for 30 years at Zellers in Moncton. She was a talented quilter, and many family members were fortunate to receive one of her quilts as a gift. She was especially close to her siblings and cherished their family gatherings, which included countless trips to the States over the years. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. She will be sadly missed, but we will cherish all the great memories we had together throughout the years.
She will be sadly missed by her seven children: Léo (Linda) of Moncton, Gisèle Ruppert of Dieppe, Raymond (Phyllis) of Dartmouth, Louise of Dorchester, Robert, Paulette (Renée Ruest), and Monique (Léo) Gallant all three of Dieppe; her 10 grandchildren: Daryl, Matthieu, Dennis, Lise, Mark, Lisa, Eric, Amélie, William and Albert; her four great grandchildren: Sadie, Evan, Dylan and Brayden; her two brothers: Ulysse (late Doris) of Fitchburg, Mass, and Léo (Gilberte) of Stoughton, Mass.; her sister-in-law, Maria LeBlanc of Moncton; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was predeceased by her husband of 71 years, Emile Cormier (March 2021); her brothers and sisters: Irenée (Christina), Odila (Adélard), Viola (Antoine), Emile (Rogette), and Gerald.
