Leone Rose Gabruck (nee Gouthreau)
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Leone Rose Gabruck announce her passing on December 28, 2023.
She leaves to mourn her spouse Kelly Gabruck of forty-one years; brother in law Ron Gabruck (Trich); and sister in law Colleen Kwiatkowski; as well as various nephews, nieces, cousins, extended family and friends.
Leone was predeceased by her parents Leo and Rita Gouthreau. She was very proud of her father who was a bomber pilot in World War II. She served in various administrative capacities within the Norwood Legion in support of his memory and as a show of respect for all veterans.
Leone was a graduate of Dalhousie University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Commerce Degree. She loved music which could be heard constantly playing throughout the house. She also loved animals, particularly her cats and her favorite dog Cleo. She made awesome Caesars, which were often described as a meal in and of itself. She was an excellent cook, and kept a meticulous house.
Leone had gorgeous blue eyes, a beautiful smile, and a wonderful sense of humor. She was a lady with quick wit and strong opinions, known for standing up for what she believed in. She loved Kelly and it was her pride to take care and dote on him.
The family would like to personally thank Nikki Nicholson for all her unwavering support during this difficult time.
Donations in memory of Leone can be made to the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) in loving support of animals and their care.
As per her wishes, there will be no funeral service.
