Sorry for your loss, I had Bee as a teacher at S.L.H.S. and Garnet as a baseball coach, so I knew her both as a teacher and as a friend who could take a joke at the ball park, a true lady who will be missed.
Hi from Diana (Onotsky) McNiven.
Realized today that I knew Bee for 50 years. She became a best friend when I transferred to Smithville High School in 1971. We kept a close relationship all the years as best we could. I remember the children Tighe, Craig, Lori and Darcene very well. Bee was blessed to have many loving family members. My sympathy goes to all. Bee was a loving and happy person. I will miss her e-mail communications.
Our heartfelt condolences to the LeBlanc family. Doris and I have a very high regard for Bea. She was always ready with a big hug whenever you crossed her path. Always good-humored and quick with a kind word for you. I still chuckle when I look back to when I was a smart-alec teenager who felt hard done by because my grade 11 math teacher, Mrs. LeBlanc, made me write the final exam even though my mark was high enough for an exemption. Something to do with not attending class three-quarters of the semester. I never studied so hard for a test and ended up doing well. It was a good life-lesson from Bea, to be accountable to yourself. I may not have appreciated it back then, but I do now. R.I.P. Bea. You were one of the good ones.

Many great memories with the Leblanc family snowmobiling & boating. Always a lot of laughs. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Bee. I used to line dance with her at the Grimsby Seniors' Centre. She was a great teacher & always so much fun. After she retired we corresponded by email for several years & I always enjoyed her sense of humour. Another great gal gone to rest. Thanks for sharing that super video of her. A life very well spent! Jeanne Halet Syms
We are so sorry for your loss. Grandma was such a sweet, kind ray of sunshine. I have no doubts she is dancing away right now! Xoxoxoxo
So sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. LeBlanc I was in her class at South Lincoln High School She was a lovely lady and a teacher not to be forgotten The tribute in pictures was beautiful Deepest sympathy to her family
All those years in High School and I never knew Mrs. LeBlanc had a first name. She was Lori's mom or my teacher. I have good memories of her teachings at SLHS. I am sorry for your loss. It looks like Mrs. LeBlanc had a great life and as the days and months pass, I hope you will have many memories with which to look back and provide you comfort.
Nothing I say can ease your pain but know my heart goes out to you.
As a former student from SLHS, I was sad to hear about the passing of Mrs. LeBlanc. I remember her as a lovely woman and I'm sure she will be sadly missed by many.
Watching the video, I was touched by the many beautiful family pictures included, a lovely tribute filled with enormous smiles and happy memories. I know they will bring comfort to loved ones in the years to come.
My sincere condolences to her friends and family. RIP Mrs. LeBlanc.

She was a beautiful lady inside and out!! She came to teach us some Dancing skills.. and when she was doing the waltz she danced alone.. as if she had a partner.. and did it so graceful you could almost see someone in her arms.. she had a great sense of humour!! Being good friends of Wayne and Robin, we were honoured to get to know this graceful lady!! Our condolences to the whole family near and far!! Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time as you go on without her. May you find comfort to know that she is at peace and free from pain!! Ron and Yvonne Niemeyer
Loved & respected Mrs. LeBlanc immensely. Thank you Bea for the tremendous impact you had on my life. Oh and the stories she & Garnet could tell about the Goldsmith's back in the day. May peace be hers always. Love and peace to Bea's family.
Condolences to the LeBlanc Family I knew your mom through Garnet who I worked with in Smithville O.P.P. They were a great couple who will be truly missed.
I worked with Garnet in Smithville from 1966 to 1972. I remember Garnet & Bee being a very loving couple and something I was hoping to duplicate in my life. You can be very proud of their loving relationship. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Mike Walker
