LEBLANC, Barbara Lynne (nee Alexander)
November 12, 1952 – October 18, 2016
We are very sad to share with you the death of Mrs. Barbara Lynne Leblanc (Alexander) of Beaumont, Alberta. Barb passed away peacefully after a short battle with Alzheimer’s and cancer, she was 63 years old. Predeceased by her dear mother Pauline Alexander. Barb was born in Midale, Saskatchewan and was raised on the family farm near Goodwater, Saskatchewan. Barb had a long wonderful career as a Registered Nurse with many areas of interest and expertise, meeting many people and making many friends along her journey. Barb will be dearly missed by her husband Rob; sons Michael (Talea) & Ryan; her four grandsons: Haylo, Syler, Kelin and Torin and her very special dog Ajay. Barb’s family: her father Mr. Gerald Alexander, brother Grant Alexander (Christine), sisters Betty Stewart (Bob Alexander) & Kathy Vancha (Jim) as well as nieces and nephews, many extended family members, and her numerous friends and colleagues.
“We will hold you close within our hearts and here you will remain, to walk with us throughout our lives. Until we meet again.”
We would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Bogoch of the Beaumont Family Medical Clinic and Dr. Carney and staff of the Grey Nuns Hospital, oncologist Dr. Capstick of the WW Cross. As well as the wonderful caring staff and volunteers of unit 9Y at the General Hospital, Edmonton.
A Celebration of Barb’s life will be held on Sunday October 23, 2016 at the Eaglemont Christian Church in Beaumont, 5002 62 Street, Beaumont, Alberta at 3:00pm.
