Barbara, known by many as “Miss Bob”, was a homemaker who loved spending time with her family.

She leaves behind many fond memories that will forever be cherished by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Percy “PJ” LeBlanc; her son, Tommy LeBlanc; grandson, Emile Nick LeBlanc; great grandson, Cason N. Seaux; son-in-law, Steven P. Bellomy; and her parents, Henry and Esther Kennedy Boudreaux.

Serving as pallbearers will be Orien and Wyatt LeBlanc, Brandon and Coty Landry, Jeremy Seaux, Lance Provost, Seth Pellerin, and Jeremy Johnson. Honorary pallbearers will be Chick Bellomy, Paul O’Brien, Gail Matthews, Effie Silas, Debbie Ryan, and Jade Ronsonet.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude and appreciation to June Provost Jones, Dauterive Hospital ICU and 2nd Floor Staff, Marie Delcambre, Kerrill (Sista) James, AAA Hospice, Marsha Sonnier, and especially to her daughter Jennifer and her family, Jeremy and Chick, for the care and compassion given to Barbara.

Martha(Marty), Jeremy, Robin and Jeannine, we wish to offer you all and the family our deepest sympathy. It is extremely hard to lose a Mom, Grandma, and Best Friend. I won't tell you it will get easier over time because I would not be telling you the truth. But you do learn to live and accept it through memories, faith and friends. My prayers will be with all of you. Love and Hugs, Anna, George and family.

Mom it dosent seem real and wasn't expected. Even in sickness you had us laughing you didn't know who we were but you still made us laugh. I will never be able to look at a sweet potato and not think of you. I wish God would have saved you but apparently that wasn't in his plans for you. I miss you already and probably always will. I know you and dad being reunited is a good thing. R.I.P. Sweet Angel till we meet again..........I Love You Always.

IT IS SO HARD TO LOSE A MOM. YOU FEEL SO DISCONNECTED, SAD, ANGRY, AND YET RELIEVED THAT SHE IS NO LONGER IN PAIN. I KNOW IT IS NO CONSULATION NOW TO TELL YOU THAT IT WILL GET EASIER TO BARE AS TIME PASSES.

REMEMBER THAT SHE WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF YOUR LIFE. YOU MAY HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH HER IN A DREAM, OR YOU WILL REMEMBER A SMILE OR SOME SOLID ADVICE AT A DIFFICULT TIME. I THINK THAT THIS IS GOD'S WAY OF HELPING US TO MOVE ON AS LIFE PASSES.

I REMEMBER YOUR MOM AS BEING A CARING PERSON WITH A SMILE ON HER FACE AS SHE RAISED A HANDFUL OF KIDS THAT WERE VERY ACTIVE. SHE ENJOYED PEOPLE AND WAS A GOOD NEIGHBOR.

MY GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU AND GIVE YOU THE STRENGTH TO FACE WHATEVER COMES YOUR WAY.

YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS.

YOUR OLD NEIGHBOR,

PAT BREAUX
NEW IBERIA, LA

My deepest sympathy to your entire family! I have fond memories in Orange Grove all those many many years ago. Ms. Bob and PJ always had the door open for thier children's friends. It was like being a part of the family! I really enjoyed the last visit with your mom in Dec. She showed me family pictures and was so happy to talk about her children and told stories about the years that had passed. Love to you all!

My Bird Lady gave me the best childhood memories. She called me Lucy. Never a dull moment around her. Her Sense of Humor will never be forgotten. I send my Love and Prayers to the Family. I Love All of You and so wish I could be there at a time like this. I Love my Bird Lady.
