1932 – 2016

LEWISTON — Therese Gilberte LeBlond, 84, of Lewiston passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 16, at d’Youville Pavilion in Lewiston.

She was born in Auburn on April 13, 1932, a daughter of the late Donat and Antoinette (Paradis) Bouvier. She grew up in the local area where she attended school and was a graduate of the Ave Maria Academy in Sabattus.

On June 5, 1965, she married Ronaldo LeBlond at St. Peter’s Church in Lewiston and the two started a family together. For most of her life, Therese worked in the shoe industry for various shoe companies until her retirement in 1997.

She was a member of the Ladies of Ste. Anne in Auburn and was always very fond of traveling, especially to Canada, shopping and going out to eat with her friends. She also found much love and joy while being around and spending time with her grandchildren. She will be missed greatly.

She is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Ronaldo of Lewiston; her daughter, Louise Reissfelder and her husband, Tyson, of Lewiston; along with her two grandchildren, Jillian and Caleb Reissfelder. She also leaves behind her sister, Claudette Belousek of Sarasota, Fla.

The family wishes to express their sincere thanks to all of the nurses and CNAs at d’Youville Pavilion 4 West for their continued care and compassion to Therese over the years.
