FRENCH-BLONDEAU, Barbara (nee Richards)

May possibly 31, 1945 – January 23, 2023

Handed away peacefully at NSHN-Blind River with relatives by her side. She has reunited with her late spouse, Henry French (2003) and late son, Leo (2019) (Claudette). Barbara is the loving and nurturing mother of April Robins (Darrin). Beloved spouse of Don Blondeau. Treasured grandmother of Zachery (Heather), Steven, Keeven (Kristen), Jennifer and wonderful grandmother of Adam, Broden, Kadrick, Alora, Noah and Religion. Lovingly remembered by Don’s young children, Don (Mary), Rick (Adrienne) and Vicky Vincent (Craig). Sister of Jim, Brenda, Neil and Karen. Predeceased by her mom and dad Ivan and Margaret Richards and siblings Diane, Jack, Bob, Peggy, Ken, Mary and Ivan. For good missed by her furbaby Bandit.

The most important factor for Barb was her religion and relatives. She cherished every option to devote with her spouse and children and savored just about every moment. She cherished tenting, cooking, crafting, the outdoors and driving bikes. Barb lived a total and prosperous daily life. She poured her coronary heart and soul into every little thing she did doing the points she loved with the individuals she loved most. We will permanently overlook her infectious smile and quick wit.

The spouse and children wishes to thank Dr. Mary Shamas and the focused team at both NSHN-Blind River and HSN for their treatment and compassion for the duration of this hard time.

In memory of Barb, the household appreciates donations to NSHN-Blind River 

Loved ones and mates are invited to celebrate Barb’s daily life at St. James the Higher Parish, 44 Lakeside Avenue, Blind River on Tuesday, January 31, 2023 beginning at 11am with Father Ignatius Xavier officiating. Mild luncheon to follow in the church basement.
