It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Elizabeth Agnes "Aggie" (McDonald) LeBlanc on March 21, 2022, at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital. Born on February 6, 1938, in South Branch, NB, she was the daughter of the late Frederick and Hattie (Tucker) McDonald.
A devoted full-time wife and mother of 4, Aggie still found the time to work for about 30 years at Zeller’s Skillet Restaurant as a waitress. After retirement Aggie looked forward to her monthly lunches with former co-workers, and work part-time at the Fredericton Co-op. Through the Catholic Church, Aggie also dedicated her time to the Pastoral Care Program at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital. She was such a compassionate lady, and always cared for others.
Some of Aggie’s favourite activities included knitting, and later in her life bird watching off her back deck and taking long walks on the Doak road. She loved to knit, and always had a basket full of mitts and dish cloths for anyone that was in need of them.
Aggie is survived by her husband, of 67 years, Omer LeBlanc; children Roger (Nancy), Teddy (Ann), Diane and Gerard LeBlanc (Pam); numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren; brothers Paul (Mareta) and Mike McDonald (Jean); sisters Catherine Anne Hudson, Muriel "Mickey" Symes, Charlotte LeBlanc (Euclide), Barb Preston (Ralph) and Frances Drover, as well as many extended family members.
In addition to her parents, Aggie was predeceased by a brother Frederick McDonald, as well as her sisters Ruth Warren and Mary Morton.
The family would like to express their sincere thanks the nurses, doctors and staff on 3E and 4E at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital. Your kindness, compassion and care extended to Aggie and her family will never be forgotten.
A visitation will be held on Friday, March 25, 2022 at McAdam’s Funeral Home from 2 – 4 pm & 6 – 8 pm. A funeral service will be held at J.A. McAdam Memorial Chapel on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at 2 pm. Interment will take place at St. Anthony’s Catholic Cemetery at a later date. For those who wish, donation in Aggie’s memory may be made to the DECH Palliative Care or a charity of the donor’s choice.
