Greg, Jon and families, Cathy and I extend our condolences for your loss of Barbara. Barbara and i go back a long way. She was born a week after I was and my mother got the benefit of Grandma Black's assistance, i'm sure much to Aunt Ruby's dismay. Undoubtedly we met for the first time not long after. In our youth Barbara and I had lots of fun to-gether, either on our visits to St Catherines, ( where Uncle jack would chauffeur us around ), or when Barbara and her familiy came to Toronto and stayed with us.
She was fun, always kind, thoughtful and compassionate.
Our thoughts are with you.

On behalf of the Westway Probus Club, we would like to express our sincere condolences to Barbara’s family.

Barbara was a lively, fun and active member of our club for several years. She encouraged our members to join her as a volunteer for the St. James Food Basket, and several of us continue to volunteer.

She will be missed.

Greg, Jonathan & Family:
I will always think of Barb, with that beautiful smile and infectious laugh. Aunt Ruby and my dad were very close and she was surely a favourite niece of my dad's. He had a special place in his heart for her, as she did for him. Barb also had a connection with Victor, as she was the School Nurse at one of the first school's, that Victor taught at - small world!! I will cherish and hold on to my beautiful memories. Our sympathy and thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Sending virtual hugs.
