Rachel L. LeBlanc
Rachel Lucille LeBlanc, 84, of Dieppe, passed away on Friday, May 18, 2018 at the Résidence Faubourg du Mascaret following a lengthy illness.
Born April 21, 1934 in Saint-Joseph (Memramcook), she was the daughter of the late Uldège and Anita (LeBlanc) Gaudet.
Joe and Rachel married almost 65 years ago in Toronto. They moved to a new home in Etobicoke where they raised three children while balancing busy careers. After almost 50 years in Toronto they bought their retirement home in Dieppe. They made new friends and reconnected with many old friends and family. They joined the local bowling leagues, the Knights and enjoyed many happy years together.
Rachel always had a kind word and a smile for everyone but especially for children. She would often take her grandchildren off for ice cream and treats without telling anyone.
She loved to play cards and would laugh whether she won or lost. Her greatest love was spending time with her family.
Rachel will be sadly missed by her beloved husband of 64 years, Joseph; three children: Douglas (Allison), Bruce (Mary), and Suzanne (Robert Jago); five grandchildren: Ronald, Jason, Nathaniel, Darren, and Benjamin; two great-grandchildren: Marcus, and Frankie; a sister, Johanne Gagnon (Germain); and many nieces, and nephews.
Rachel is also predeceased by six brothers: Aldoria, Rhéal, Gaston, Camillien, Roland, and Michel.
