November 28, 1932 – May 11, 2020
Barbara June Anderson (Gregory) passed away peacefully on May 11, 2020 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at the age of 87. Barb was born on May 28, 1932 in Maryville, Tennessee the only child of Noah and Cora Gregory. Barb met Chesley and the two were married in 1954. Eight years later, Barb reluctantly followed Ches to Canada. She “left Plumtree down in Tennessee” for the Great White North, she was never able to get warm again. Barb taught at the Saskatoon Teachers College and later supervised intern teachers for the U of S. After that, she explored her real passion, which was real estate. She worked as an agent for both McCallum and RE/Max. When she was not busy working, she was the ultimate mom, convoying her children to activities -never missing a gymnastic meet. Barb’s other passions included shopping and exploring various art shows and auctions with her husband. She is survived by her children Chesley Jr., Alice Ray (Alan), April (Pat) Loran; grandchildren R. Chesley (Tanya) Johnson, Stephanie and Bailey (Cole) Neufeld, Anthony (Tricia), Anderson (Haley), Noelle, Jessica (Aden), Loran, Theresa (Richard) Schmidt, and Michelle (Ryan) Ellson. She also had seven great grandchildren, one of whom was brought into this world the same day Barbara left us. Due to the unfortunate circumstances we are living in, we will not be holding a public service for Barbara. There will be a small, intimate service held with just family.

Hi—my name is Ann King—Frances Hamilton’s daughter—Helen Renakers niece—Helen and Frances were sisters—I always loved getting to know Barbara when she was visiting in TN. She stayed at my mothers condo and I usually went with them on the shopping trips to the outlet mall in pigeon forge. She was such an elegant, lighted hearted person and I loved talking to her about the auctions they had attended because I love antiques. We were just wondering about her at lunch today prompting me to do this google search. We are so sorry to learn of her passing—sending our deepest sympathy.
Ann and Frances

Vicki and I are saddened to hear of your mom's passing.
The first thing that came to my mind was the kindness your mom and dad showed us when we moved here. Perhaps you remember our daughter Tanya who is developmentally challenged. Absolutely every time we saw your mother she asked about Tanya with a voice full of caring and love. She and all the other wives, such as Elva Nixon, Rita Mirwald, Caryl Bell and Bea Burgess were so supportive.
It is hard to express how much this meant to us . It made a difference to our lives. Of course she wanted to know about the boys as well but there was special glint in her eye when we talked about Tanya. One of the last times I saw your mother I told her how much we appreciated the support and she looked at me astonished and said of course.
We also remember the Christmas and other gathering where many of you took over our children. We thank for doing that and you need to know we trusted you without doubt.
I know this is a difficult time for you so I thought I would share some love with you.
Vicki and Jim
