She leaves behind sisters, Fleurette McLaughlin (Stan), Jacinthe LaRocque (Eugene), her brothers Camil, Richard (Mona), Claude (Sharon), David (Carmen), Andre.

She will be welcomed into heaven by her mother Rena Letourneau, her father Lorenzo Jacques, father-in-law Clarence Cliche, sisters Clemence Roy and Marie Jacques, brother Jean Jacques, niece Lynn McLaughlin and grandchildren Lorenzo and Robert Cliche.
Leonie will always be remembered as a master of numbers, being a bookkeeper for her entire career for multiple businesses. She was also the manager of the Larder Lake Co-op for many years, her skills and dedication to her position were instrumental in keeping the doors open.
Leonie is remembered fondly by everyone she met as a joker and dedicated to her family. She was very strong, thoughtful and worried about everyone but herself. She enjoyed relaxing at the cottage, taking rides on the pontoon boat, visits to Casino Rama and her yearly summer trips with her two grand-daughters.
As per Leonie’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral. Cremation has already taken place.
