Deborah was a native and lifelong resident of Franklin, born on April 14, 1964, one of six children born to the late Dallas Leonard Sr. and the former Bernadette Charpentier. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and sister, Deborah loved spending time with her family. She was a die-hard Saints fan and also enjoyed fishing. Deborah was also a fighter, first battling breast cancer and then lung cancer. On Saturday, June 17, 2017, at the age of 53, with her husband Robert and her brother Michael by her side, Deborah received the healing that she and so many have been praying for, when God took her into his loving arms and kissed her into eternity. She will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by all whose lives she touched.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband of 35 years, Robert P. Breaux Sr.; her sons, Robert P. Breaux Jr., Jordy Breaux and his wife Laura Hahn Breaux, and Samuel Breaux; her grandchildren, Connor, Logan, and Jane Breaux; her mother, Bernadette Charpentier Leonard Paul; her brothers, Michael Leonard and Dallas Leonard Jr.; her sisters, Patricia Louviere and Dolores Derouen; her beloved dog, Sophia; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends.

In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her step-father, Eolours James Paul; her brother, David Leonard; and her father and mother-in-law, John B. Breaux and Ann Breaux.
