1965 – 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of Claude Antoine Cormier from Moncton announces his sudden passing on August 19 at the age of 54. He would have been 55 in September. He is the beloved adopted son of Hector J. Cormier and Simonne LeBlanc–McCarthy. He was loved beyond words, and will be forever missed by his longtime partner of 22 years, Elizabeth Gallant and her family and friends. His natural parents were Aldé Cormier and Corinne Hébert.
He also leaves behind six brothers and sisters: Anne–Marie Appleby (Paul Griffith) from Stoney Creek, Ontario, Francine (Gérard) LeBlanc from Dieppe, Norma Gillis from Moncton, Albert (Mae) Cormier from Moncton and Allain Cormier from Edmonton, Alberta. He also leaves to mourn a half–sister Nicole Cormier (Ray Green) from Moncton.
He was predeceased in death by his beloved brothers Yves and Aldé jr, as well as his aunt, Sister Laura, n.d.s.c.
Claude graduated from Mathieu–Martin in Dieppe. He also attended courses at the Université de Moncton and at Oulton College. He owned and operated his own business for a period of time. Claude was a self–taught computer and internet technician. He was greatly loved by all who appreciated his kind, generous, compassionate and sentimental spirit. He loved music, travel, camping, animals, and was a gifted photographer. It is our hope, in his memory, that you will do an unexpected act of kindness for some unfortunate soul, in his memory.
In this time of pandemic, the family will opt for a private burial ceremony at the Our Lady of Calvary cemetery in Dieppe.

After a brief illness, Elizabeth “Betty” Corey went to be with our Lord in Heaven in her 83rd year, on August 20, 2020 at the Saint John Regional Hospital.
She was the backbone of our family and will be forever missed until they meet again by her loving husband of 62 years, Gerald; her daughter, Cheryl and son, Blair, as well as her grandchildren, Dakoda, Braedin, Hailey, Brandon and Devon.
Betty, as she was known to her family and friends, grew up in Saint John on Chesley Street in the 30’s and 40’s, the daughter of Harry and Frances London. She loved to tell stories of her days on Chesley Street with her brother and cousins and friends.
In 1956 she met a quiet boy from Campobello Island who became the love of her life, and together they travelled from Canada to the US and back, finally settling in Saint John and built an amazing life together. Betty was a faithful Christian lady and was a proud member of Calvary Temple where she was involved in the Sunday School, Bible Study and the Women’s Groups. She had a ceramic business in Red Head where she lived for a while and enjoyed what she did.
The family would like to thank the palliative team of 3BN and Dr. O’Brien, especially for all the kindness and compassion they showed to both Betty and her family during her illness. We would also like to thank her sister–in–law Bev and her dear friends, Connie, Cindy, Janet and Sue Ellen for spending time with Betty during her days in the hospital. We are grateful for the visits, the prayers, the kindness and love and the food during a difficult time. While we grieve our loss here on earth, we know she is with her heavenly father – Until we meet again.
Betty was predeceased by her parents and both of her brothers, Harry and Arthur, as well as family from both the London and Corey sides of the family.

17 Aug 2020
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Joseph Leonard (Len) LeBlanc, age 88, of Moncton NB, on August 17th, 2020. Born in Saint John NB, he was the only child (adopted) of the late Helen (Govang) and Arthur LeBlanc, of Moncton. He attended school in Moncton and completed high school at St. Thomas College in Chatham NB. He graduated with a BA and BEd from St. FX, in Antigonish NS. In 1961, he was awarded the Lord Beaverbrook teachers’ overseas scholarship to study for a year at the University College London Institute of Education. He taught school in Montreal and then in several locations in NB, including South Nelson, Bathurst, Dorchester and Moncton. He also coached high school volleyball and reach–for–the–top teams. He earned an MSLS from Syracuse University (NY) through summer study from 1967–1973 and then worked as the library coordinator for School District 2 in Moncton until his retirement.
Len was a dedicated musician, playing piano from a young age and further developing his talent as a whistler and singer through his college years. He was also an exacting performer, striving for excellence and working tirelessly toward that goal. He was immeasurably generous, offering guidance to others seeking to reach their potential in musical endeavours. He led a lively international folksong group for students at Harrison Trimble High School and volunteered as an all–round expert in local students’ music productions, including a series of school musicals where he played older vocal roles as needed, managed the lighting and provided technical support. He sang for numerous weddings, funerals, regular church and synagogue services and other events in Moncton. He always enjoyed singing at local fundraising events and in hospital and seniors’ home concerts. He was a member of several choirs including les Chanteurs du Mascaret, Chorale Alouette, Mount Royal United Church Choir and le Choeur Neil–Michaud. In the summers of 1971 and 1973, he was a soloist with Syracuse University’s Crouse Chorale and Concert Choir. In 1975, his solo with les Chanteurs du Mascaret placed 3rd in the International Eisteddfod in Wales. He always felt honoured to share the stage with so many others who shared his passion and he took special delight in performing with his daughter Tess. He was a wonderful grandfather and ever the teacher with enthusiasm for his grandchildren’s musical and athletic endeavours.
Len was predeceased by his beloved wife Mildred (Millie Webb) LeBlanc and his sister Norma Legere.
He is survived by his sister Rose Marie Jones, four children Tess LeBlanc, Connie LeBlanc (Robert Chan), Vanya Ewart (Stephen) and Misha/Mike LeBlanc, four grandchildren, Bridgette and Alexander Chan and Fiona and Liam Ewart.
He appreciated the kind care of his pharmacist and of his palliative care nurses and physicians at both hospitals in Moncton. He was grateful to his homecare nurses and especially to his son Misha for patient and attentive care provided throughout his and Millie’s final years.
A private family Celebration will be held at a later date.
Len’s arrangements have been entrusted to Fergusons Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858–1995).
Donations in Len’s memory may be made to the Albert County Historical Society or to a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be shared on Fergusons Funeral Home Facebook page or at www.fergusonsfuneralhome.com.
