Narcisse Leger - St. Joseph, Oct. 9 -
Many friends and acquaintances in this community were shocked to learn of the sudden death of Narcisse Leger of St. Joseph, which occurred on Friday night, Oct. 5th, in Moncton. The late Mr. Leger left here by car for Moncton Friday afternoon, accompanied by his wife, and was in his usual good health. A few hours after supper time, about eight o'clock, they decided to return home and as he was about to enter his car he was fatally stricken with a heart attack. Deceased was 81 years of age and is survived by his second wife (nee Sarah Gaudet), two sisters, Mrs. Honore Leger (Melande) of Memramcook and Mrs. Camille Belliveau (Marie) Dorchester Crossing, N.B., and one adopted daughter Mrs. Edmond Robichaud, Moncton. The body was brought to St. Joseph on Saturday afternoon and rested at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Adelard Belliveau, with whom Mr. and Mrs. Leger had been residing. The funeral service was held on Monday morning in St. Thomas Church here with a large number of friends, relatives and parishioners present, showing the high esteem in which the late Mr. Leger was held. The solemn high mass of requiem was sung by Rev. Father Eug. Daoust, pastor of the parish, assisted by Rev. Father Theriault, as deacon and Rev. Father Gendron, as sub-deacon, both curates at the parish. The pallbearers were Leandre Melanson, Lionel Leger, Phelias Melanson, Antoine Melanson, Eugene Bourgeois, and Lucien Belliveau. Relatives from Lynn at the funeral were Mrs. Alfred Bourque, Mrs. Camille Melanson, Allard Landry, Jonny Landry and Eugene Bourgeois.
