I worked with your Mom in the cafeteria at Banting SS. She was a wonderful co-worker..always happy and enjoyed serving the students.
She was so proud of her children and would tell us stories about her kids and grandkids.
I had the pleasure to get to know your Dad when he would come to the school to pick her up..he was a character!!
I wish to express my condolences to the Barran family,for the lost of their Mother Grandmother and Great Grandmother.
May Barbara Rest In Peace

To all the Barran family,
While I only met Barbara a couple of times, I felt she was a lovely woman (reflected in the family members for sure).
Please accept my condolences and know I am thinking of you and that you will cherish all your memories of Barbara.
