Michele Kathleen Lebouthillier (née- Pantin) passed away peacefully at her residence on Mon, 15 February 2021 in her 54th year. Daughter of Pat Kennedy and Richard Pantin. Beloved wife of Jeffery Lebouthillier and outstanding mother to Chaz Lebouthillier and Olivia Lebouthillier.

Also leaving to mourn, sisters; Cecily and Julia Pantin and the extended Pantin and Kennedy families.

Born in Toronto and raised in Chatham (Miramichi), NB, Michele's college (photography) experience was rudely interrupted as she was unexpectedly swept off her feet by a dapper RCAF pilot who marched into her life. She married Jeff a year later in summer 1986 and followed him to Cold Lake, Alberta in support of his military career. Together, they endured various military assignments until the birth of their first child Chaz in 1994 and their second, Olivia in 1999. Subsequent military relocations she endured included, Moose Jaw, SK, Comox, BC, Winnipeg, MB, Bagotville, PQ, Colorado Springs, CO, Ottawa On, and finally Trenton, ON where they purchased their retirement home in 2015.

Throughout the years, Michele forged countless enduring friendships thanks to her warm  and caring personality. She loved socializing, going to the beach, cuddling her cats, feeding wildlife and watching home improvement shows with the dim hope that someday her husband would actually initiate much-needed renovations. She however despised gardening, anything related to exercise, driving anywhere near Toronto, doing taxes, cleaning, and Jeff's loud music and marginal guitar playing.

Michele was a caring and devoted wife who adored her 2 kids, cherished friends and her co-workers at Coward Optometrists and Apple Saddlery.

She will be greatly missed!
