Sincerest sympathy to your family. Barbar was such an inspiration to all - she had a big heart and my mother was so fond of her and all the work and devotion she gave to the UCW and Women's Institute. She was truly giving to all.

My condolences to the family. Always enjoyed a visit to the farm as a child to visit Uncle Tommy with my dad. She always had a fresh cake or cookies ready to share. She was one of a kind.
Barbara will be missed by everyone that knew her. She had a big heart and always said a big "Hello" anytime you met her. I wish to send my deepest sympathies to Allen, Faye and all the family.

Barbara was just a joy. I enjoyed my visiting stops where she shared news, with such enthusiasm, of her family and members of her Community. If there is such a thing as "almost cared too much" that was Barbara. Wishing the family the comfort of loving memories.
My sincere condolences to the Barton family on the passing of Barbara. She was so kind to me and I will remember our visits fondly. She enjoyed life to the fullest and loved her family dearly.
Allen and family - Not sure I have words to express the depth of your loss. Barbara was amazing, she was everything to everyone. Where there was need or she was passing your gate she was there with a smile on her face and words of encouragement. She will not only be missed and remembered by her family but by the entire community.
We are very sorry to hear of Barbara's passing. She was a lovely lady. Our deepest sympathy to all the family.
Barbara was an amazing! She will missed be missed by many. Thoughts and prayers are with everyone!

"Godmother's Fill your Heart with Love and Light", and that was so true of Auntie Barbara. While I didn't grow up as close to all my aunts and uncles and cousins as would have been ideal, Auntie Barbara was the guiding light. Never forgetting a birthday, a Christmas (even when she had dozens of grandkids...and later great grandkids to care for!), a special occasion, a sad event - her support and presence was unwavering even if it was a call to say "I don't know what to say but i'm here for you". Over the years, I gathered quite a collection an little angels that Auntie Barbara would send me - they always made me feel special, loved, watched over - but most importantly - connected - connected to my extended family and to my mom's home. For, no matter where we lived, Vankleek Hill was always referred to as home.
When I think of Auntie Barbara not only do I think of homemade buns (no one out west could Ever perfect that recipe!) but I think of all of you. She brought you all to life for us - she connected us in ways that I am so thankful for. A true matriarch, her love never ending, her laughter contagious and her generosity truly admirable - she could bring a story to life, make a stranger a friend and kept the art of letter writing alive.
I remember each and every visit she made out west - thank you to her family for always accommodating - we know some trips were more planned out that others! - but she got to know my kids and because of Auntie Barbara I had a window into an extended family that has been through so much and has pulled together time and time again. I know your hearts are broken, as ours are as well. Lots of love as you come together to celebrate a soul that loved deeply and lived for helping and enjoying love in others.
Condolences to the Barton family, Barbara will not be forgotten, she was a kind,thoughtful,generous, person always ready to help, especially seniors in her community. May you ready in peace dear girl we will miss you.
Our deepest sympathies to the Barton family. Thinking of you during this time.
We would like to send our sympathy to the family. Barbara was a very much loved person in the area and was always welcoming to others. God bless.
My deepest sympathy to the Barton Family.
One of the kindest, sweetest, and giving souls on the planet! My heart aches for all of you, and all of us, who will miss her so. Deepest sympathies and hugs to you all.
With love Kim, Bob and Family
Our deepest sympathies to you all.
She was such a lovely person.
