Renee M. LeBlanc-Hartney

Renee M. LeBlanc-Hartney, 56, passed away Friday, March 29, 2024, at the AccentCare Hospice in Milton after a long valiant battle with cancer. Renee was true warrior and, as always, took on her diagnosis and treatment with the spirit and fight of a champion. She was born in Boston, daughter of Eugene V. and Madelon A. (LaPierre) LeBlanc, was raised and educated in Canton and was a graduate of Canton High School and the University of Lowell where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. Music was one of Renee’s passions and she pursued it with great joy. She was an accomplished pianist and organist and shared her talents as the accompanist, pianist, organist and soloist at the St. James Lutheran Church in Canton, where she was a longtime member. She was a member of the Neponset Chorale Society and was very proud of becoming the First Female Director of the Old Stoughton Musical Society in Stoughton, America’s Oldest Chorale Society. She worked for ConvergeOne as a Customer Satisfaction Manager for 12 years. One of her greatest joys there was the creation of the Women With Purpose group and the quarterly newsletter that she was so passionate about. In addition, for several years Renee was an integral member of LifeTeen, a prayer and music program geared toward teens and young adults at Immaculate Conception Church in Stoughton.

One of Renee’s other passions was Karate, and she achieved the honor of a Second-Degree Black Belt in Uechi Ryu Karate and was a longtime student at Okinawan Karate Club in Stoughton. She toured the country and the world with her Karate skills, was a member of the 2004 Women’s Friendship Tour and had fond memories of being awarded her original Black Belt in Okinawa, Japan. Renee enjoyed spending time outdoors, walking, hiking, camping, canoeing and gardening as well as music jams and singing.  Above all, she enjoyed spending time with her husband, parents, family and her friends. 

Renee is survived by her husband John G. Hartney III of Stoughton, and her parents, Eugene and Madelon (LaPierre) LeBlanc of Bridgton, ME. She was the beloved sister of Michael S. LeBlanc and his wife Sharon of Sharon and the adoring aunt of Maxwell L. and Olivia E. LeBlanc. She is also survived by many cousins and countless friends.
