Obituary of Barbara Ann Doucette

It is with great sadness that the family of Barbara Ann Doucette announce her passing which occurred peacefully on Thursday, March 7, 2024 at the Rocmaura Nursing Home, Saint John, NB. Born in Saint John, NB on March 5, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Annie (Turnbull) Coggan.

Barb spent a lot of her time in her gardens and greenhouse growing anything she could, which was her greatest passion. She enjoyed camping, hunting, four wheeling and loved being by the ocean. 

Barb is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, John “Jack” Doucette of Rothesay, NB; daughters: Shelley Mercer (Gary) of Quispamsis, NB and Kerry Rogers (Mike) of Fairview, PE; grandchildren: Alex Craig (Kate Gillis), Matt Craig (Laura O’Neill), Becca LeBlanc (Eddy Barad), Josh LeBlanc (Cassie Osborne) and Jake LeBlanc (Rebecca Stagg); great grandchildren: Gavin, Lainey, Archer, Jensen and Scarlett; brother William “Bill” Coggan (Paulette); step siblings: Edward Coggan (Sandy) and Linda Stockford (Ronnie); as well as several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Barb was predeceased by her daughter Kimberley LeBlanc; sister Lois Muir; and brother Norman “Carl” Coggan.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Reid’s Funeral Home (506-832-5541), 1063 Main Street, Hampton, NB and will be held privately. A private celebration of life will take place at a later date. Interment will take place in the spring at Hampton Rural Cemetery for close family and friends.

While the pain of such an enormous loss will make the world seem darker for a time it will be long outlasted by the light burning in all the lives she touched.

Donations in memory of Barb may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of New Brunswick or to the charity of the donor’s choice. Personal condolences to the family and charitable donations may be made through:
