We were very saddened to hear of Barb’s passing.She will be missed.Take comfort in knowing she is in a more peaceful place.Take care.
It brought me sadness to hear of Barb passing. I worked with her for many years at the West Queens Recreation Association, bingos, dances and other functions. She was a great volunteer and friend. Alot of hearts are sadden because of her death because she was one of a kind. RIP BARB……..Heaven has just gotten a new Angle…..she will be at every ball game with all of the players I am sure.

sorry for the miss spelling of ANGEL in my earlier post. ANGEL is what Barb is now….and at peace and in no more pain.
It saddens me and all of the ball players who had the pleasure of playing softball in the league where Barb was part of one of the teams; regardless of the outcome of the game; Barb always had kind words for both her team and the opposing team. A great lady and she will be sadly missed as a hard working volunteer…. I also had the pleasure of working with her as a volunteer; that is where some of my inspiration to become the best volunteer that I can be….God Bless her family at this most difficult time…..
so sorry to hear about Barb passing away
To the family of Barb ,may I offer my deepest sympathy and condolences to each and everyone of you.

I certainly enjoyed waiting on Barbara when she came to Sobey’s. I will greatly miss seeing her. She was one of a kind, knowing her as a kind and very caring person. God now has her as one of his Angel’s, How lucky he is. God Bless you and your Family.
So saddened to hear of Barbs passing. I remember Barb most from the ball games. Always had a smile on her face and would cheer for both teams! R.I.P. Barb
You were a very dear friend to me for years, and always will be.We spent alot of good times together going to the ball games, you were a very good score keeper and you really enjoyed it. You were the life of any party,especially the dances.We could always tell when you wern’t there, it sure wasn’t the same.You were loved by everyone who knew you. You always had a smile on your face no matter what. Barbie I will never forget you and all the good time we had through the years. I don’t think I could count the number of cups of tea we drank together over the years. Barbie you will always be in my thoughts and heart forever, and I know you are safe in the arms of Jesus, and are watching down from above on everyone who loved you very dearly, as much as I did.
Go and rest with the angels my dear friend.
take care Gerald , Mag,Connie, Linda, Marrion, and families my prayers are with you at this sad time.
