May 16, 1931 ~ July 23, 2007
On July 23rd, our mother, Barbara quietly slipped away from us and the unbearable pain she had suffered for many months. We will gladly carry the pain instead Mom. Our hearts ache.
Our mother was an amazingly strong woman throughout her life. Although not always evident to us, she passed this quality on. We will carry that part of you with us Mom. We hope you’re on the most lush, green fairway that you’ve ever seen. That the arm sun is on your face, your lungs are filled so full of fragrant air. When you hit the ball it whistles through the bluest sky as far and straight as you can see.
Wait for us at the 19th hole Mom.
We will join you there. We love you and we’ll miss you, Lynda, Jacque, Barb, Rick, and Deb
Barbara settled in 1980 in Abbotsford, where she was a successful advertising sales person for the Abbotsford News for many years. She was an avid golfer and a member of the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club for many years.
We would like to thank the nurses and doctors that were kind and cared for our mother with gentle compassion. There were some that cared as if our mother were their own. We thank you so very much.
A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, July 28, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. at Woodlawn Funeral Home, 2310 Clearbrook Rd, Abbotsford followed by burial at Musselwhite Cemetery.
