Virginia "Jennie" LeBlanc(1917 - 2014)

"Jennie" entered into eternal rest on Monday, January 13, 2014 at her home in Paincourtville, Louisiana. She was 96 years old, born on October 19, 1917 in Grand Bayou, Louisiana. "Jennie" was a member of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Paincourtville and a member of the Ladies Altar Society. She loved her church and St. Elizabeth School, which she lovingly referred to as "The Convent".

She is survived by a brother- Alfred LeBlanc, a sister- Annette Simoneaux, and husband Curtis. She was dearly loved by a host of nieces and nephews and their families who affectionately referred to her as Aunt Jennie, Nannie and Ganny.
She is preceded in death by her parents- Annette and Felix LeBlanc; sisters- Lena Newchurch & husband Roy, and Bernice Comeaux & husband Albert; brothers- Pierce "Peter" Leblanc, Joseph "Jo Jo" Leblanc and wife Marilyn; sister-in-law- Norma Leah LeBlanc, and niece Marilyn "Lyn" Leblanc Judy.

Very Special Gratitude to Cardinal Hospice of Baton Rouge, and all of Ganny's Beloved Sitters. Words fail the family when attempts are made to share just how special you all have been during Ganny's last years and months of her active life. She has been truly blessed by your tender care and concern for her. You have been the Guardian Angels that allowed her final wish to be granted- to remain in her "home". That is, until home in Paincourtville no longer provided her with all that she deserved, and a 'better' resting place was determined for her.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. Elizabeth School, Post Office Drawer M, Paincourtville, LA 70391 and/or St. Elizabeth Church, Post Office Box 1, Paincourtville, LA 70391.
