My dearest condolences to the family. I will surely miss her presence; she was a lovable and kind person. We spent some precious moments together these past few years. Barbara loved to paint, dance and enjoyed being pampered. May you rest in peace.

Our sympathy is extended to Barbara's family.
I vividly remember Barbara's first day in Canada. She arrived with her mom (my Aunt May) and her sister Betty. Her father had arrived at an earlier date. Barbara was decked out in a little red plaid kilt and was so anxious to see and experience everything! She was strong-willed and an inquisitive youngster which always kept us second guessing as to what to expect next. I remember her always at my mother's elbow when it came time for baking pies and tarts. She couldn't wait to get her hands into the pastry. At one time she decided to iron one of my blouses which turned out to be a disastrous mistake, but then that was "Barbie".
Barbara is at peace now, but she leaves us with our cherished memories of her.
