It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving Leona LeBlanc of Sydney on Monday, September 27, 2021 with her husband and family by her side.
Leona will be sadly missed by her loving husband Bert LeBlanc and two daughters Myrna Phillips (Sydney) and Crystal Wall (Jason) of Bateston. Also, Leona had four grandsons, Devin Rutherford, Kodey MacArthur, Hunter and Logan Doucet. Also, Leona had two great-grandchildren Alyssa and Gaige whom she dearly loved. Leona had several step-children. She also had loving sisters Charlene Costello (Halifax), Michelle Bonnell (Sydney) and brothers Lorne Costello (Kathy) Vancouver and Gordon Costello (Debbie) Sydney. As well, a very special friend Linda Hatfield (Sydney).
