To all of Barb's family, news of Barb's passing is just catching up with us; but we would like to express our condolences to you all at this time. We have very fond memories of Barb (and Lester) from our time in the parish there. Barb was a lovely person. She made a wonderful contribution, in so many ways, to the life of her church. May she rest in peace, and be raised in glory. -Rev. Canon Rod & Wendy Gillis.

I always respected aunt Barb, as we were taught to call her out of respect.She always smiled when I would see her, or even uncle Lester. I hope you, her family are doing ok at this time.

The world has lost a wonderful woman. The management and staff at Canadian Tire Tantallon wish to express our deepest condolences to Barbara's friends and family. It was always a pleasure to have Lester come in the store, share stories and he would often mention Barbara's name. You are all in our thoughts.
