Cléo Norma Léger (née Primeau)

Cléo was born and raised in Cornwall, Ontario, by her late parents, Lucienne (née Bonhomme) and Roméo Primeau. Cléo is predeceased by her husband, Lionel Léger and brothers Paul and Johnny (Marie). She is survived by her sister Hélène Baker (late Doug) and her brother, Romeo Jr. (late Jean). In Lionel, Cléo found the love of her life. His charm and outgoing nature matched hers and they wed on April 2, 1956. Living in Cornwall, Ottawa and Montreal, Cléo and Lionel raised their four children who survive her: Suzanne (Ross) (late Robert), Julie (Steve), Pierre (Renée) and Michel (Joanne). Cléo is also survived by her cherished grandchildren: James (Sarah), Kelly (Alex), Jesse (Katherine), Zach, Emily, Logan and Tasha. Cléo was blessed with four greatgrandchildren: Evelyn, Norah, Jake and Oscar. She is also survived by two sisters-in-law, Agnès l’Abbé (late Bob) and Pauline Rubino (Angelo) as well as many nieces and nephews. Cléo is predeceased by sisters and brothers-in-law, Léa Martell (Lloyd), Rita Bourget (Charles), Lauretta O’Farrell (Howard), and Reina Soucy (Léo). Cléo and Lionel thoroughly enjoyed life together. Many summers at the cottage near Summerstown were filled with joy and much fun and laughter. Of course, they loved to open their home to entertain their many friends and family. Wintering in warmer climes and travelling also brought much joy to Cléo and Lionel. Lionel passed away too soon in 1996. After
his death Cléo lived in the community of Chute-à-Blondeau, Ontario, where she received the invaluable support of Julie, Steve, their family and friends. The family extends its appreciation to the staff of Maxville Manor for their outstanding care over the last several years. A heartfelt thank you is also extended to Maurice and Huguette Lalonde for their enduring friendship and support. The family will hold a celebration of Cléo’s life in the spring of 2023 in Cornwall, Ontario, (details to follow). Donations to the Maxville Manor Foundation would be appreciated.
