Steve, Kathy, Susan & Melissa
My deepest condolences to you & your families. I have so many fond memories of working (and partying) over the years with Barb and our happy gang at RBC in Thorold. She always kept us laughing, often with stories about you guys.
Rest in Peace dear Barb

My grandma. She was straight up alright. Would tell you exactly what was what without holding back. God bless her for it. Everyone was welcome at her house. Anytime, any day. She was always there for her kids, grandkids and great grandkids. Anytime, any day. Bbq's at grandmas every weekend when we were young. Homemade soup and peanut butter cookies for lunch. Staying up way too late playing canasta. I'm really going to miss you grandma. I'm sad you won't be there to see your grandkids get married. Or your great grandkids grow. But I know you will always be there in our hearts and we will always be thinking of you. After all, you are to thank for starting this crew. Xo
Ps. Say hi to auntie kim, uncle doug & grandpa

I will miss our telephone updates on family. Our conversations were a lot of repeats as hearing loss got worse every year but we managed to understand each other fine. You always made me feel welcome in your family’s lives. When you get to heaven give Doug a hug from me & make sure he knows I love & miss him every day. Miss you already. ❤️ Love you. Karen

Barb was such an amazing woman! I remember how much I looked forward to coming over every Halloween when I was younger to see her and whatever kittens were there at the time! Thinking of her family and sending my love ❤️

To Barb’s children and grandchildren
I was so sorry to hear about Barb, and my thoughts are with you.
We met at work at the Royal Bank, Thorold, about 58 years ago, when you kids were so, so young. Steven was only 6 weeks old. Our working family was more like a real family in those days and we all went through our ups and downs together. Mostly ups. Thank goodness.
It’s hard to think of Barb without recalling a funny story and having a good chuckle. She was a unique , straight forward person, with a big heart. She loved her family very much and was always so proud of how it grew and grew.
So many stories, so many laughs. I’m sincerely glad to have known you.
Thanks for the memories,Barb .
God bless you
