My deepest, deepest sympathies. I am a 1972 graduate of St Luke's Hospital School of Nursing and was privileged and blessed to have met and been instructed by "Miss LeBlanc." She was a warm, caring and nurturing mentor and will be lovingly remembered by many whose lives and hearts she touched. Prayers for strength and comfort to her family.

I would see Alice on Fridays at the hairdressers and I will miss seeing her sitting under the hair dryer each week. She was a lovely person who will be deeply missed. My condolences to her family on your loss.

I would like to express my gratitude to Alice for being such a wonderful and most of all a "Catholic Nurse "......She was a dear friend to the Langis family and when I was born very pre-mature she baptized me in the delivery room. This has been part of my heritage and a story that I have always treasured.I hope through her prayers, other Catholic nurses will have the courage to do as Alice did that day and come to understand that nursing is a vocation as much as a career. Once again, Thank-You Alice....I will never forget you! Imagine the place Our lord has prepared for you !

Alice touched many people lives in a very special way. She was a woman ahead of her time. She was there whenever anyone in our family was in the hospital - a very calming presence, telling us all will be well.
Condolences to her loved ones who will miss her - it's a comfort to know she is with God.
