    Aunt Barb on the Summerland, BC patio! Her last visit, but it was one I was privileged to share with her. Ah, Linda...your love for you mom shows through your smile!

    Aunt Barb reached in and touched my young child's heart from the first moment I met her. On vacation in Tucson, or more excitingly on the beach in San Diego, I learned to feel safe and cared for in her presence. Barb always had a lovely, authentic...  more

    So very sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. She was my father’s loving wife and companion for 35 years and a dedicated caretaker in his final years. She will be remembered as a kind, good humored wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

    I remember when I was around 10, Mom would set up the ironing board in the living room , and together we'd watch I Love Lucy while she ironed a pile of clothes. We laughed so hard sometimes it must have been hard to iron😂 😂. She later taught ME to iron!
