After a brief illness at the end of a long disease, Barbara Crabtree (nee Kinloch) passed away on the 6th of May at the age of 72 years, in Calgary.
Barbe’s first home was Darfield, and she went from the Interior to the Coast, finally settling in the Prairies. From BC Forestry to the Bank of Montreal, she worked almost every job imaginable; collecting knowledge, stories and friends at every turn.
Quick to smile, and quick to laugh, Barbara will be most remembered for her positive outlook and her love of (and way with) words and animals.
She is lovingly remembered by her daughter Belva; grandson Hudson; brother Sandy; brother-in-law Pat Ganley; sisters-in-law Judy and Sharon; nieces Dardie, Josephine and Penny; nephews Jay, Tony and Michael; as well as much-beloved cousins from both here and away.
She was predeceased by her parents Betty and Graham, brother Mick, and sister Pidge.
Barbara hoped that her loved ones would celebrate her life in their own way, but for those of you who wish to gather, a Celebration of Barbe’s Life will take place at Darfield Hall on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 1:30 pm.
