Mrs. LeJeune was a lifelong resident of Lake Arthur. She was a very loving and supportive matriarch of her family. Her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren were her life.  She loved hosting Easter Sunday at her house with all her family.  Her monthly luncheons with her nieces were very special to her.
