Dieppe, N.-B. – It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lucie LeBlanc, 88, on November 6, 2022, after a short battle with cancer.
Born on February 12, 1934, in Scoudouc, she was the daughter of the late Felicien and the late Crescence (Bourque) Richard.
Lucie was the last surviving member of her family. She was married to the late Evariste LeBlanc. She worked as an office cleaner at Assumption Place in the 70’s and 80’s. She would come home from work to her waiting cats. She loved cats and music. Lucie also enjoyed crochet and had a booth at Victoria Park’s Craft Show for 39 years. She was also a good cook and famous for her homemade beans, meat pies, clam chowders, to name a few. A true Montreal Canadian fan, she loved watching hockey with sometimes three T.V.’s at the same time during playoffs. She enjoyed playing “dealer’s choice poker” with the gang, bingo and playing guitar.
