Elizabeth LeBlanc Stricker. June 10, 1929 to Feb. 13, 2009. A native New Orleanian was preceded in death by her husband James Stricker and her parents Chloe and Dr. Lloyd LeBlanc and stepfather R.M. Turner.

She is survived by cousins Jeanette Johnson of New Iberia, Rixby Broussard of Lafayette and Pat Francis of Arabi and Jerome Chassaniol of Slidell and long time friend and fiancée, Joe Fisher of Boutte.

Mrs. Stricker was assistant sales manager for General Motors, Chevrolet Division until her retirement. Elizabeth was a sports fan and an avid Saints fan and enjoyed bowling and watching golf, ice skating and dancing on television.

She enjoyed all aspects of Mardi Gras from being in several krewe courts to Jim’s direct participation in Pete Fountain’s Half-Fast Walking Club and her auxiliary wives’ club. A long time member of Chateau County Club, Mrs. Sticker was active in the Jane Austin society and garden club activities. Dancing was a favorite pastime including Cajun, Jamaica and ballroom, until illness prevented her active participation. Friends and family attended memorial services held at Leitz-Egan Funeral Home.

The service was officiated by Father Spencer Lindsay of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. In lieu of flowers, donations were made to St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Paradis.
