Ivy Watson Barron
Passed away on July 1, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce our Mother, Sister, Nana, GG, and GGG, Ivy Aulin-Barron, passed away peacefully on July 1, 2018 at the age of 89 at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice in Kamloops. Ivy was born on December 11, 1928 in Edinburgh, Scotland, the middle child of seven children born to Edward and Ellen Lovett. At 9 months of age Ivy, her three siblings at the time and her parents left Scotland and immigrated to Canada settling in Kamloops. As a child, she spent time in Blue River and then Duncan BC before returning to Chase and Kamloops in her twenties. After dealing with health issues as a young child she grew to become a determined, strong, and feisty young lady with loads of charm. She loved to sing and dance, attending dances whenever she could, and singing and entertaining her family and friends as often as possible. She was predeceased by two great men who she shared her life with: George Kelly Aulin (deceased Sept 15, 1993) and Thomas (Tim) Barron (deceased January 5, 2016). She was predeceased by her parents and her siblings Betty Fedoruk, Jim Lovett, Chuck Lovett, and Robin Lovett and her daughter in law Patricia Aulin. Ivy’s life was made rich by her family and the memories she shared. She has left a fingerprint on all she touched especially those closest to her. She is survived by her siblings, John (Iva) Lovett and Alice Rodger, her children: Sandra (Norman) Harrison; George (Marlene) Aulin; Ted Aulin; Kirk (Patti) Aulin; and Cindy (Paul) Aulin – Haynes; her grandchildren: Lisa Carnelley; Blaine (Tanya) Harrison; Ryan Harrison; Nikki (Carol) Aulin; Luke (Grace)Aulin; Mackenzie (Sherry) Aulin; Bryce Aulin; Kirsten (Layne) Ulmer; Jared Aulin; Ryan (Nadine) Aulin; Kirk Jr Aulin; Jake Aulin; Alexsandra Aulin-Haynes; Robyn Aulin-Haynes; and Jensyn (Connor) Aulin-Haynes; her great grandchildren: Zachary (Kirstin) Carnelley; Alexis (Kyle) Carnelley; Torey Carnelley; Cole Harrison; Joshua Harrison; Isabella Abraham; Bodhi Ulmer; Kali Aulin; Kynzli Aulin; Ari Aulin; and Leila Aulin; her great-great grandchildren: Alexander Carnelley; Isabella Carnelley; Sofia Carnelley; Maximus Carnelley; Carter Wood : her step-daughter Lori (Brian) Barron, step-son Kelly Aulin and numerous extended family. She loved babies, children and generally all things family. She will be remembered for her feisty strong personality, her opinions, her charm, her love of laughter, and her defence of her family. As the family matriarch, her greatest joy was being surrounded by those she loved and those who loved her. She was the extended families’ hairdresser, seamstress, carpenter, CEO and giver of advice. A very special thanks to Dr. Newmarch who provided care for Ivy for many years. We are very gratefully for the compassion, patience, kindness and loving care provided to Ivy. Also, a special thank you to the staff at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice for their compassion, care and support provided to Ivy and her family.
