Barbara was a kind and giving person to everyone she knew, she enjoyed listening to French, Cajun and Country Music. She loved cooking her specialty crawfish bisque and homemade bread pudding for family and friends, quilting, cleaning houses, fishing, gardening and most of all spending time with her family and friends.

We would like to thank our brother Dean LeBlanc and our aunt Lois Thibodeaux for being such good caregivers, they made her last couple of months very comfortable. Thanks to her good friends and family members who prayed for her daily and visited her at the times she needed them, Murphy and Hazel LeBlanc, Charles and Jane Menard, Betty Robin, Tammy Menard and Julie Fremin for making a very special hand fan that kept her cool and comfortable. We also want to thank Hospice Care of Louisiana for helping us through this difficult time.
