Louise "LuLu" LeBlanc Obituary

Louise “LuLu” E. Pignotti LeBlanc, age 73 of Conneaut, died November 24, 2023, at Hillcrest Hospital, Mayfield Hts.

LuLu was born on April 6, 1950, in Conneaut, the daughter of Basil and Eleanor Gabriel Pignotti. She was a 1968 graduate of Conneaut High School.  She went on to the Cleveland School of Nursing and graduated as an LPN. She began her career as a ‘Candy Striper” at the old Ashtabula County Nursing Home and other nursing homes in the area. LuLu later became the first Ashtabula County Deputy Sherrif and LPN for the department. She went on to Hamot Medical Center, in Erie, Pa as an LPN and took care of her patients for over 26 years until she retired.

Throughout her life LuLu could always be found helping at the family business, the “Swan Café”, making world famous pizzas for family and friends. She also assisted her brother at “Basil’s Café” with breakfast and lunches.

LuLu was a member of Corpus Christi Parish, a former member of the Cara Mia Club and the Ladies of the Red Hat Society. She loved to play Diamond Darts, Sudoku puzzles, card games and was exceptional at spades. Lulu’s greatest joys were her family and friends. She was always willing to help others anytime with anything she could.
