Juliette Y. Babineau
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother and grandmother Juliette (LeBlanc) Babineau at the age of 99 on August 17, 2020 at the Drew Nursing Home in Sackville just months away from her 100th birthday.
Born in Moncton, NB she was the daughter of the late Henri and Leoline LeBlanc (LeBlanc).
She was raised in Moncton and Saint Joseph in a large family during the struggles of the Great Depression. She worked in Moncton at T. Eaton Company during the second world war before her marriage to Fred Babineau, her husband of 64 years. She then moved to Sackville where they started their life together and raised their family. She was a wonderful wife and nurturing mother, grandmother and a great homemaker. She loved to play cards with friends and family and was a member of the Sackville Seniors Club where they enjoyed many organized bus trips and card parties over the years. She was a long time parishioner of Saint Vincent’s Church starting in 1949 and was a life-long member of the Sackville Catholic Women’s League and was very active in the church until her declining years.
Juliette will be sadly missed by her son Robert Babineau and her daughter Lorraine (Vaughan) Wheaton of Sackville; her grandson Joshua Wheaton of Calgary who were all so loved; her sister Annette (late Leonard) Cormier, and by several nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her loving husband, Fred (2013), her brothers Leo, Robert, Paul-Emile and Euclide, sisters Lorraine, Marguerite, Bertille, Rita and Aline.
A special heartfelt thank you is extended to the staff of the Drew Nursing Home for the excellent care and love she received while a resident there and for their kindness and compassion towards her.
Juliette’s arrangements have been entrusted to the care and supervision of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street Sackville NB 364-1300 from where a Catholic Funeral Liturgy of the Word will be held Monday, August 24, 2020 at 2pm with Father Broderick officiating with burial to follow in the Sackville Cemetery. This is a public service, however, in these uncertain times of Covid-19 we do not expect friends or family who feel compromised to attend.
Donations in Juliette’s memory can be made to the Saint Vincent’s Catholic Church, the Drew Nursing Home or the charity of one’s choice.
