Barb was a homemaker, partner with her husband in the vegetable farm, an accomplished seamstress and avid quilter.

“As a family, we had a good life and thrived on the farm. We realize all these blessings were from the Lord’s hand. Our lives changed on September 8, 2021 when Barbara was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Throughout her eighteen weeks of hospitalization and short stay at Linden View, Barbara experienced excellent care and attention from Dr.

Torrie and the weekly rotating doctors, Taber hospital staff and the Palliative Care team. As a family, we are very grateful for the many cards and prayers of support during her convalescence. We praise the Lord for all who have supported us and may the Lord bless all of you.

She will be sorely missed by Harry and her family and many friends. We take comfort knowing that she is with Jesus her Lord in Heaven”
