Yvonne Marie LeBlanc Honsberger, 78, of Beaumont, went home to be with the Lord Sunday, January 31, 2021, at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas, Beaumont. She was born on May 26, 1942, to Beatrix Hitter LeBlanc and Albert Joseph LeBlanc, Sr., in Port Arthur.
Yvonne was a woman who loved life and cherished her family and friends dearly. She was a devout Catholic. Her strong faith is what carried her through many times in her life. She had a fighting spirit and nothing kept her from living life to the fullest.
In 1980, she married the love of her life, George. A blended family was made, and she took it upon herself to always make sure every child was included and loved. She was a very generous and kind lady. She loved all of her children, but the most joy and happiness came from her grandchildren.
She loved to be in the kitchen. Cooking was one of her best ways to show you that she loved you. We could always count on holidays at her house with the best home cooked meals. When the weather was pretty, you would be sure to find her buying plants or working in her garden. Being out in her backyard and enjoying nature was one of her favorite pass times. She absolutely loved birds and had a special fondness for red birds. If you know the story of the Cardinal, she is now our special one.
