LECLAIR, Mary-Jane


Mary-Jane was given her angel wings on Friday, October 14, 2016, at just 10 years old. She is definitely not alone in heaven; she is joined by her Nona, Papa Tom, Christina, “Merle Haggard” and many others.

Loving daughter of Danny and Tina. Little sister of Mandy, Dallas, Kayla and Danny-Mae. She will be missed by Grandma Val, Nanny Shelah and Papa Cameron. Mary will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

With Mary-Jane’s passing, we remind others that her life is one to be celebrated. She loved to be at camp, surrounded by family and friends where they would hunt, four-wheel and enjoy endless campfires laughing together. She was never afraid to get dirty and always the first to jump into the river.

Mary-Jane’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her, understood that the quality of her existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her gentle smile could melt the hearts of those around her, her quick wit made anyone around her laugh and her determination showed us all that anything is possible.

Mary’s favourite colour was blue and we ask that you wear your favourite blue article of clothing in honour of Mary-Jane.

Friends are invited to the Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Friday, October 21, 2016 from 3:30 – 6:30 pm. Funeral Service to be celebrated in the chapel at 7 pm. Major John Kirschman officiating.

Memorial contributions to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Paediatric ICU or Ronald McDonald House Ottawa would be greatly appreciated in Mary-Jane’s memory.
