Barbara VERVOORT

VERVOORT; Barbara Diane (Challenger)

October 20, 1937 – May 8, 2016

With sadness in our hearts we say good-bye to Barb. She was with her daughter and grandson when she passed on to be with her mother (Melba), daughter Sandy, and husband Louis. Born in Lethbridge, Alberta, eventually settling in Chilliwack, Barb worked for many years as the paint Lady at Sears. Always a delight to be with, laughing and making jokes and trading barbs with anyone willing or daring enough to take that task. She leaves behind her son Howard Parkinson, his wife Myra, daughter Cherie, her husband Scott Haugh, grandchildren Peter, Chrissy, Tyler, Breanne, and Derek, and 1 great grandson Lucus. She will be missed but not forgotten. Barb requested not to have a service just a family get together in her memory. The family would like to thank BC ambulance service for the wonderful care and the staff at Chilliwack Emergency. Also Dr. Hopkins and his staff Diane and Flo for many years of care.
