Patricia Leduc Room proposed
City seeking public input on a commemorative naming proposal
The City of Ottawa’s Commemorative Naming Committee is conducting public consultation on a proposal to name a room at the Orléans branch of the Ottawa Public Library the "Patricia Leduc Room".
This commemorative naming proposal is made in recognition of Leduc’s community service and devotion to preserving her community’s history.
Patricia Leduc played an active part in preparing the book that commemorated the 125th anniversary of the St-Joseph d’Orléans Parish. Over a period of 20 years, she compiled five thick, well-indexed binders of press clippings related to the history of Orléans and surrounding areas.
A school teacher, a federal public servant and a mother of three, Leduc lived most of her life in Orléans and was involved in numerous school, parish and community causes.
Patricia was also co-founder and secretary of the Association des Séguin d’Amérique, president of the Société franco-ontarienne of Eastern Ontario, secretary and president of the Régionale Ottawa-Carleton (subsequently Samuel-de-Champlain), president of the Association du Club d’artisanat d’Orléans and a member of the Friends of the City of Ottawa Archives.
The proposal was submitted by Louis V. Patry.
