Obituary for Leah Rose Balmer (Bonnaure)


Leah Rose Balmer, 89, of Edgewater, Florida, formerly of Sturgeon, PA, passed away on July 7, 2017, while a resident of the Ocean View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in New Smyrna Beach, Fl. She was born September 19, 1927, to August and Rose Depasse Bonnaure in Sturgeon, where she lived for 65 years. On July 9, 1947, she married Edward A. Balmer, who preceded her in death in 1978. She also was preceded in death by her mother and father, her sisters, Clarise Delaney and Evelyn Bastide, and her brother, Augie Bonnaure, all from Sturgeon.

Leah is survived by her sons, Edward A. (Judy) Balmer and Jesse Balmer, with whom she lived for 23 years in Florida; and a daughter, Michele Balmer (significant other, Tim Linhart); two brothers, Paul (Kay) Bonnaure and Gilbert Bonnaure, both of McDonald, PA and brother-in-law, Robert Balmer of Sturgeon and a wonderful, large extended family of nieces, nephews, and “greats”. She loved them all!

Leah graduated from South Fayette schools and worked for 20 years at John Kane Hospital as a Nursing Aide. She was a member of St. Gerard’s Catholic Church in Edgewater, FL., and a former member of St. Patrick’s Church in Noblestown, PA. She was a member of the “Florida Association” in Edgewater where she made many new friends, played cards and Bingo and went on field trips and to the theater. Leah was a huge Steeler, Penguin, and Pirate fan…and follower…and cheered her beloved Iron-Curtain team on with her “Steeler Family” of friends, who often congregated at her son’s home to watch the games. Her “best friend” was her dog Chelsea, who often sat on her lap during the Soaps. Leah also loved visiting her old schoolmates in Sturgeon every time she made the trip “up North”.

Visitation will be Friday from 12 noon – 4 p.m. and 6-8 the Thomas-Little Funeral Service, Inc., 314 W. Lincoln Avenue, McDonald (724-926-2800). A procession will leave the funeral home at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday for St. Patrick’s R. C. Church, 7322 Noblestown Road, Oakdale, where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Leah will be laid to rest at the Robinson Run Cemetery in McDonald, next to her beloved husband.

Memorial donations may be sent to St. Gerard’s Catholic Church, 3171 S. Ridgewood Ae., Edgewater, FL. 32141 or Halifax Health Hospice, 3800 Woodbriar Trail, Port Orange, FL 32129.
