Sheila Ann (born Kennedy) LEGER

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mother Sheila Ann Kennedy with family at her bedside at Saint Brigid’s Home on May 26, 2020, at the age of 90. She was predeceased by her husband Adrian Leger, her father Robert Kennedy, her mother Edith Smith and her daughter Susan. Sheila was a graduate of the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal and a devoted obstetrics nurse at the Jeffery Hale Hospital for many years. She became an accomplished artist and will forever be remembered as a kind, generous and thoughtful person.

Considering the COVID-19 situation, the funeral will be held at a later date at St. Patrick’s Church in Quebec City. However, family and friends are invited to leave a message of sympathy on the Lépine Cloutier website:

Sheila will be dearly missed by her children: Kathryn, the late Susan, Valerie (François Lefebvre), Tony (Sandy Jennekens), Barbara (Jean Larocque), Robert (Nathalie Touzel) and Richard (Piatsi Mangiuk); her grandchildren, who lovingly called her Grammie: Melanie (Bernard Leung), Sarah (Charles Desjardins), Natalie, Isabelle (Grégoire Marois), Janine (Patrick Scott), Olivier (Daphnée Nadeau-Poulin), Colin, Elizabeth and Simon; her great-grandchildren: Oscar, Roxanne, Sophie, Frédéric and Thomas. Other close family are her brother and sisters: the late Robert, the late Betty and the late Mavis (the late Guy Leclerc); her brothers- and sisters-in-law: the late Carmela (the late Jack Langlois), the late Anthony (the late Dottie), Joan (the late Joseph Hazel) and Douglas (Beverly), her niece Terry, and many other family members and friends.

The family would like to sincerely thank all the devoted staff at Saint Brigid’s Home, particularly Dr. Marie Martineau, Hélène Bédard and the wonderful team on the second floor, for their compassion, for the great care provided by “the Maries” (Marie-France, Marie-Christine, Marie-Josée, Marie-Claude), Rosalie, William, Johanne Lachance for her companionship, and the many volunteers who brought joy and a smile to our mother during the almost four years she lived at Saint Brigid’s. We are greatly appreciative.
