Gloria Catherine LeBlanc
LeBlanc, 75, of Maccan, passed away at the Cumberland
Regional Health Care Centre, on Saturday, June 1, 2019. Born
in River Hebert, NS, Gloria was a daughter of the late Ed and Ruth
In her younger years, she lived in
Ontario, she picked fruit for employment, which she really
enjoyed. A few years later she returned home to Maccan and
worked a year at the Wandlyn Inn, Amherst. She was very
content to stay home and raise her children and care for many others
who weren’t her own. In her spare time, Gloria enjoyed a
Friday night with her family at home playing poker. She
enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, colouring and knitting. Slippers and
baby blankets were her niche. She was always on the phone
and loved to talk to her friends and family.
She was adamant that her family
understand the benefits of a good education and would diligently work
with each and every one to ensure that they made the most of their
time in school.
Gloria was an avid fan of the Maccan
Royals Baseball Team, as many of her brothers and other family members
had played on it.
She loved being surrounded by her family
for weekly Sunday dinners, and enjoying a lobster on Mother’s
Day. She especially loved when the children came to visit
and always had a Loonie or two waiting for them.
She is survived by her daughters, Cathy
Burbine, Maccan, and Karen (Albert) Dwyer, Sackville, NB; sons, Ernie
(Peggy), Maccan, Joey (Kathy), Amherst, and Robbie (Gail),
Warren; sisters, Brenda Burke, Ontario, and Donna Dwyer, Maccan;
