      EUNICE~ It is with great sorrow that the family announces the passing of our precious mother, Patricia Leonards Johnson. Her memory will be treasured and her presence on this earth will be missed beyond measure. We know that heaven is rejoicing, and that Patricia will be watching over us as she waits for the day that we will share in her perfect joy of heaven, our eternal home.

    Patricia, born in Eunice to August and Dora Frey Leonards. She was a woman of many talents and passions. Her love for travel and entertaining was only surpassed by her exceptional culinary skills. Patricia could effortlessly whip up a delicious meal that would leave everyone's taste buds yearning for more. However, amidst all her pursuits, nothing brought her greater joy than spending time with her family, especially her cherished grandchildren.  

     She leaves behind an indelible legacy of love and warmth in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her. Pat was a wonderful mother to Melinda J. Valenta, the late Colleen J.

Pat fostered deep connections with extended family members and dear friends who were like family to her.

She was also preceded in death by her daughter Colleen Johnson Ardoin, infant daughter, Mary Ann Johnson; parents, August and Dora Frey Leonards; brothers August Leonards Jr. and Lloyd Leonards, as well as sisters, Alberta Bergeron and Antoinette Miller.
