      Rita LeBlanc
      1931-2016

      Rita LeBlanc, 85, of Dieppe, passed away on Sunday August 14, 2016 at The Moncton Hospital. Born on July 16, 1931 in Moncton, she was the daughter of the late Alban and Gertrude (Belliveau) Roy.
      Her family meant the most to her. Rita was a mother to 12 children, who later gave her many grandchildren, great and great-great-grandchildren, each and every one held a loving place in her heart! Her hands were always busy creating some new gift to give at Christmas. Mom traveled many roads with Dad over the years. From camping in different parks, visiting many places, to singing at benefits, nursing homes and hospitals while Dad played his guitar and harmonica - bringing a smile and a two-step to many people over the years. She loved to dance and when the music started, her feet were ready to hit the floor. Her smile and the gleam in her eye will always be in our hearts.
      Before she married, Mom worked for Woolworth’s and L’Évangeline newspaper in Moncton. After she married Dad, they owned and operated a grocery store in Irishtown. She worked for Joe LeBlanc at the Irishtown Grocer years later. She moved on to work at Dolphins in the Moncton Mall and finished her working career as manager for over 18 years at Dallaird’s Women Clothing store in Champlain Mall when she retired.
      She is survived by eight daughters and three sons: Diana LeBlanc (Jean), Ronald (Roxanne), Armand (Val), and Eric (Pat), all of Memramcook, Annette Van Der Fluit (Conrad) of Springhill, NS, Anita LeBlanc (Gerry) of Lakeville, Jeannette Steeves (Allan) of Dundas, Theresa Morrison (Jamie) and Majella Remington (Wyatt), both of Moncton, Yvonne Moore (Chris) of Upper Coverdale and Edith Cormier (Roland Gautreau) of Beaumont; 18 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, three great-great-grandchildren and their spouses and partners; two brothers: Edgar (Geneva) and Denis (late Nancy); as well as many nieces and nephews.
      She was predeceased by her husband, Ernest ‘Ernie’ (2011); one son, Raymond (2015); one son-in-law, Junior (Wallace) Coates; two sisters: Edna and infant Melina; four brothers: Ovila , Zoël, Ernest and infant Joseph.
      The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (858-1900) from where the funeral service will be celebrated on Thursday August 18 at 10:30 am. Visiting hours are Wednesday from 2 to 4 pm and 7 to 9 pm. Interment will be in St. Lawrence O’Toole parish cemetery, Irishtown.
