Helen was predeceased by her parents, Gustave and Mary LeBlanc, her foster parents, Victor and Janette Chaisson as well as her brother, Francis LeBlanc.
Helen will be remembered as a loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and friend. She was a beautiful, generous, caring soul with a huge heart, and a great sense of humour. Her infectious laugh will be remembered by all who knew her, as well as her wonderful home cooked meals. Helen enjoyed her home with Vince and loved having her grandchildren visit. She always had a soft spot for animals and enjoyed feeding the ducks that visited often. Helen graduated from CBU with a Business Technology Degree.
Helen, you will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved you.
