A resident of Delcambre, LA, Madge passed away peacefully at home on Monday, July 9, 2018 surrounded by her family.
Madge lived her entire life trusting in the Lord, sharing her faith, and serving the church. Her trust in the Lord was evident in the acceptance of her terminal diagnosis as God’s will. She prayed not for herself but for others, as she spoke so courageously, “Jesus you died for the love of me and I will die for the love of you.” Madge not only lived her faith, but shared her faith. She instilled Catholic values in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Madge was not only a loving wife and mother, but she spent much of her time serving the church. She and her late husband, Junior, were recognized by the Diocese of Lafayette with the Devoted Service Award.
She is survived by one son, Ned LeBlanc and his wife Margie of Lafayette; three daughters, Carey L. Laviolette and husband Kirk of Delcambre; Cindy L. Segura and husband Kent of Broussard and Annette L. Franques and husband Howard of Dallas, TX; seven grandchildren, Kal Laviolette and wife Candace; Laurie L. Hoxmeier and husband Mark; Marcus Segura and wife Kayla; Matthew Franques; Claire Franques; Andrew LeBlanc and Katherine LeBlanc; seven great grandchildren; one brother, Tommy LeBlanc and wife Nancy of Houston, TX and her sister in law, Judy LeBlanc of Lafayette.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Nedier Joseph LeBlanc, Jr.; parents, Fred Joseph and Lou Elise Landry LeBlanc and one brother, Warner LeBlanc.
Pallbearers will be Kal Laviolette, Marcus Segura, Matthew Franques, Andrew LeBlanc, Tommy LeBlanc, Kirk LeBlanc and Bert Baudoin.
