Amma Lou B. LeBlanc — "Lou"

Breaux Bridge – Funeral services were held at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 3, 2008, at St. Bernard Catholic Church for Amma Lou Blanchard LeBlanc, 70, who passed away on Tuesday, April 1, 2008, at Doctor’s Hospital of Opelousas.

Interment followed at St. Bernard Cemetery No. 2.

Fr. Allen Breaux, associate pastor of St. Bernard Church, conducted the services. Gift bearers were her grandchildren.

“Lou” was a dedicated housewife, mother and grandmother. She enjoyed camping, cooking and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Sundays at the LeBlanc home brought great joy to her by having all of her children come for lunch — it was a day of true family gathering and family love.

Survivors include three sons, James LeBlanc and his wife Belinda, Johnny LeBlanc and his wife Shally, all of Breaux Bridge, and Jerry LeBlanc and his wife Dawn Nobles LeBlanc of Whiteville, North Carolina; two daughters, Ruby Venable and Julie LeBlanc, both of Breaux Bridge; two sisters, Willa Mae Noel and Winola Hebert, both of Breaux Bridge; and her grandchildren, Robert Venable, David Venable, Elizabeth Venable, Arielle LeBlanc, Claire LeBlanc, Daelyn LeBlanc, Krista LeBlanc, Kelsie LeBlanc, Grant Martin, Lydia Martin, Summer Martin, and Abbie LeBlanc.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert “Bobby” LeBlanc; and her parents, Robert and Noelie Thibodeaux Blanchard.

A rosary was recited at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

Pallbearers were her three sons, James, Johnny, and Jerry LeBlanc, Robert and David Venable, and Eddie Noel.

Pellerin Funeral Home of Breaux Bridge was in charge of arrangements.
