Margaret Catherine LeBlanc (nee Huxley)
June 5, 1944 – November 7, 2021

We are very sad to announce that Margaret passed away Sunday, November 7th after 4 weeks in Royal Inland Hospital.

Margaret was predeceased by her mother in July 1951, father in July 1995 and her husband Robert LeBlanc in November 2010.

Survived by her brothers Bill (Sandra) & Bob (Laura), favourite Uncle Bob, sisters-in-law; Leona, Margarite, Gilles, Georgette, & Ruth, brother-in-law Rene’, and numerous nieces, nephews & cousins. Margaret is also survived by her very good friends and fellow Riverbend residents Linda and May.

Margaret enjoyed ocean cruises and loved her dogs. She took a trip to Portugal and visited the UK and got to check out some family history. Margaret was strong-willed and had a remarkable memory, she loved to attend Church whenever she was able to. Margaret had a beautiful voice and loved to sing.

Margaret was a Lifetime member of the Kamloops Outdoor Club. In her younger days she liked downhill & cross-country skiing, hiking, and rock-hounding.

In the most recent 4 plus years, Margaret was on dialysis and spent 4 weeks in Royal Inland Hospital on 6 north. These times were very challenging; however she met those challenges with great strength and enjoyed life.  This would not have been possible without a great deal of support, care, comfort, and expertise from:

  •  6 north doctors and nurses at Royal Inland Hospital. 
  • The Renal Unit’s doctors’ nurses and social workers.
  • Interior Health’s Home Care Nurse and Aids.
  • Riverbend’s Manager, staff, and residents.

There will no service at this time due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Condolences for the family of “Margaret Catherine LeBlanc (nee Huxley) 1944-2021”

Condolence from Sigi White (formerly Sigi Kennedy) on November 17th, 2021 11:02 pm

My deep condolences to all the family. I knew Margaret a long time ago when I lived on Desmond St. with my young family and she lived just down the way on Huxley Place with Robert. I gave her car rides to work, since we both worked as bookkeepers at Buxton, Cates and Co. on Victoria St., 1st block, upstairs. She did not drive and I picked her up and drove us home daily for about a couple years or maybe longer.
Yes, she had a sharp mind always and would remember me, long after she quit working there and I did some years after also change jobs. I also knew Robert very well through the Outdoor Club where he was so active and Margaret was also hiking and skiing a bit. In the past years I lost track of her, but last time I saw her, I commented on her being a subject in a ‘commercial’ that was made of her while she was riding on a stationary bike indoors at the place where she lived in the past decade or longer. I thought she had the most gorgeous thick black hair and admired it often.
Margaret had many challenges with her health and I often thought of her and how she mastered all of it, including when Robert passed away.
I so recall how she used to look over top of her glasses, like in this photo of the obituary.
May she rest in peace.
Sigi White

Condolence from Theresa Lidster on November 19th, 2021 12:19 pm

My sincere condolences to Margaret’s family. She was a lovely person who always had a ready smile and a kind, inviting manner. She was consistently gentle and respectful of people and all things in nature. I met Margaret and Robert in the Kamloops Outdoor Club in 1973 and shared many hiking adventures and activities at the cabin such as the Christmas Dinner. Her faith in God was important to her and may she now rest in peace.
