Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing of our beloved mother, part­ner, sis­ter, grand­mother, aunt and friend, Mar­lene Pa­tri­cia Le­Blanc, on Satur­day, May 27, 2017, at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hospi­tal, sur­rounded by her lov­ing fam­ily.

Born in Syd­ney Mines, May 25, 1960, she was the daugh­ter of Pa­tri­cia (Har­ri­etha) Le­Blanc and the late Stan­ley Joseph Le­blanc.

Mar­lene was a stay at home Mom that devoted her en­tire life not only to her chil­dren, but her grand­chil­dren as well. She loved the out­doors and could be found build­ing her own wildlife con­ser­va­tion in her back­yard. Mar­lene had a love for all liv­ing things, but her cat Woody re­mained the clos­est to her heart. Mar­lene also had many spe­cial gifts she loved to share with fam­ily and friends. Mar­lene loved astron­omy, do­ings crafts, and long walks on the beach. She also en­joyed cook­ing her spe­cial chili for fam­ily and friends.

Mar­lene is sur­vived by her lov­ing part­ner, Wil­liam Brayon; two chil­dren, Diana (Ste­vie) and Amanda (Kevin): lov­ing broth­ers and sis­ters, David (Leila), Alex (Wanda), Linda, Irene, Juanita (Val), and Anita (Steven), seven grand­chil­dren; and many nieces, neph­ews and cousins. She will also be fondly re­mem­bered by her many friends, her best friend and sis­ter, Linda, and also her very spe­cial grand­daugh­ter, Han­nah, who spent many of her week­ends help­ing her Nan with her many pets, bak­ing cook­ies or just cud­dling on the couch watch­ing movies. Han­nah loves and misses her Nana dearly.

Mar­lene was pre­de­ceased by her fa­ther, Stan­ley Joseph Le­Blanc; com­mon-law hus­band, Don­ald MacKin­non; brother, Ken­neth “Kenny” Le­Blanc; grand­par­ents, Arnold and Har­riet (Roland)

Le­Blanc, Mary (Dandy) Dan Joe Har­ri­etha; and great­nephew, Lin­coln Shawn For­rest.

A spe­cial thank you to the doc­tors and nurs­ing staff of the 4th Floor, Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hospi­tal and pal­lia­tive care for the won­der­ful care pro­vided in her fi­nal days. To the Doc­tors and staff of the Hal­i­fax In­fir­mary, your love, kind­ness, and sup­port went be­yond mea­sure at such a dif­fi­cult time. Spe­cial thank you to Dr. Sean Barry (Hal­i­fax) for the won­der­ful care you took in look­ing af­ter Mar­lene and her fam­ily.

A cel­e­bra­tion of her life will take place at 1p.m. in Holy Fam­ily Church, Syd­ney Mines, with Fr. James Oliver of­fi­ci­at­ing. A re­cep­tion will be held in the par­ish hall fol­low­ing the ser­vice.
