Jane Leroux

Jane Leroux

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jane Margaret Leroux on June 25, 2023 at the age of 64. Jane was born in the home her father built on December 20, 1958 in Pointe Au Baril, Ontario. She was the 13th of 14 children to the late Julia (Kyle) and Albert Leroux.

She will be missed by her siblings: Georgina (Roger), Michael (Gail), John (Dorothy), Leo (Sandra), Mary Ann (Eric), Peter (Laurie), Nancy (Fred), Patrick (Jeannette), Roger (Sherry) and Margaret (Ken). Predeceased by brothers Steven, William (Alice)(Shirley) & Robert (Nancy).
She raised 5 kids on her own and will be missed terribly by them: Melanie (Jennifer), Shawn, Steven, Kyle (Maighan) and the late Travis (Christa). Loving granny to Kayla, Aidan, Landon, Jaxson and Madsen.

With an exceptional amount of nieces, nephews and cousins who are grateful for a great aunt, friend, confident, and second mother. Always and forever their favorite.

She will be deeply missed by all of her friends and extended family, as well as the dozens of her children's friends who came through her home on a daily basis.
In any adversity she still stood tall and looked after everyone. She always had their best interest at heart with her honest and blunt advice. Family was always greeted with scents of flowers, their favorite meal, big hugs with a  "hello sweetheart." Janie carried on with planning the family reunion year after year because family was everything to her.
She even helped plan her own living memorial, so her family had a chance to say goodbye and share memories and stories with her.

A visitation will be held at Mighton Funeral Home in Hanover, on Friday, June 30, 2023  from 2-4pm and 7-9pm. A funeral service will be held at the Hanover Missionary Church on Saturday, July 1, 2023  at 11am. Friends and family are welcome join Jane's family at McGowan Falls in Durham after the funeral service.
