Barb loved life and will be remembered for her sense of humour and exhilarating laugh. She and Bob enjoyed many road trips throughout Canada and the U.S.A.

Barb also enjoyed playing cards, dinner out with friends and fun discussions with her grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Barb spent her spare time doing many crafts including, rug hooking, needle point, knitting, crocheting and sewing. She loved watching the Blue Jays.

Your mom was a beautiful person inside and out. I have wonderful memories of her while I was growing up. I loved her laugh and smile! You were wonderful daughter to her through and through. She will be sorely missed by many. May she rest in peace. Love Jill

Barb was a special lady who’s laugh was infectious & mostly laughed at herself even though I saw her only a few times over the years. One time remains in my memory of a Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant where the power went out, but we still enjoyed each other’s company (think we ate everything cold) & laughed about that too.

Thank you Barb for knowing you and I know you’ll live on through your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Keep laughing!

Aunt Barb, with her infectious laugh, will be so missed. She was a loving, special person to me, and almost like a second mom, when I was young . I have so many great memories, of times spent with her.
Rest In Peace now. I love you & will miss you.
