Leonore Glaess "Lee" LeBlanc, 62, a resident of Lacey for 18 years, passed away into the arms of our Lord on Friday, July 2006 following a very long illness.

She became a naturalized American citizen in 1970 in New Orleans, LA. She is survived by her husband of 39 years, Manfred LeBlanc, two daughters: Christine Davis of Tumwater, WA., Yvonne Reid of Winchester, CA. and by her son, Michael Leblanc, and two grandchildren.
