Gladys Roussel Le Blanc, 84, of Reserve surrendered to God on June 19, 2012, after her struggle with pneumonia.

She was the wife of the late Albert J. Le Blanc of Reserve. She is survived by her twin sister, Gloria Roussel Babin, and in-laws Robert Le Blanc Jr., Carol Le Blanc, Freida Le Blanc Rizzuto and Frances Le Blanc.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Romeo and Lucress Schexnayder Roussel of Paulina, brothers Ray, Raymond, Roland, Herbert and Leo Roussel, sister-in-law Betty Le Blanc Scioneaux, a daughter, Connie Le Blanc Logarbo, and a grandson, Challing Le Blanc.

She is survived also by her children, Kenneth “Kosh” Le Blanc (Penny), Sandra Le Blanc Bercegeay (Andrew), Debra Le Blanc Terrio (Christopher), Stephen Paul Le Blanc, Cindy Le Blanc St. Germain (Bruce) and Brian Le Blanc (Eleanora).

Gladys was a mother, grandmother, step-grandmother and great-grandmother that attended every milestone, cheered on every athletic event and celebrated every achievement. Gladys was totally loved and appreciated by her 17 grandchildren, three step-grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and four step-great-grandchildren. She will truly be missed, but her spirit and devotion to us all will be felt every day and in every challenge encountered because of the strength and confidence she has instilled in us.
