To Barbs family,
I’m deeply sorry for your loss.
I met Barb through my brother John. They were great friends who met through Chateau Lake Louise in Barbs stellar Event Planning career.
My friendship began when I moved to Alberta in 2021. She was generous and beyond. When I decided to renovate an RV (still wonder why some days) we shared her tiny beautiful suite, she made it home for me, we both enjoyed the company our evenings together, dinner, tv and wiling away hours on sometimes irritatingly difficult puzzles.
She had a great eye for design and was clearly a talented artist in her own right.
I’ll miss your friendship, your advice and your wonderful dinners, your willingness to help and to share your opinion.
My sincere condolences to all of Barb’s Family
I met Barb, probably back in 2001, when I joined what was a group of women, better known as “The Rowdy Bunch”, believe me we were at times. Every Thursday we would go out for Supper, Filos, being one of our favourite places
Last time I saw Barb, was when I stayed at her house in
Queensland, for a Rowdy Christmas Party
The thing I remember is that Barb Loved Life.
Rest Easy Dear Friend
Blessings & Hugs to her Family at this sad time.
Ivan, Cindy, Kim, Robert and family, Please know that we share your loss, we loved your Mom, treasured every single visit to Newfoundland with us. We have an abundance of memories both in Calgary, (and Andy I still recall the pistachio shells over my floor) and with the many visits after we moved home to Newfoundland. May your many memories comfort you, and the knowledge that we share your grief help you through this difficult journey xo
To experience grief, you have to have known love :) I loved this woman with my whole heart and she, she loved me right back. We will cherish all our memories until we meet again, God Speed my forever friend, God Speed. I will look for you in the wind out over the Atlantic in our favorite spot, I know I will find you there :)

I met Barb in March 2022. She crossed my path as I walked around George Lane Memorial Park. It only took one lap with her and her companion Emmie, and myself with my companion Frosty, to become friends. Within days we were chatting like we were old friends. We spent many days or evenings sitting on her deck and playing with Emmie and Frosty. Frosty knew her as Grandma Barb, as she wanted it.
We both were Old Soul's so conversation was easy. We spoke about everything and anything and nothing was was off limits.
Nearly every night we would say Good Night with a Heart. She was my REASON, to live, to love, to care, and to be.
My world is now silent other than the memories we made as we began our journey of Friendship.
You will be etched in my HEART forever . With Love - Nola and Frosty Kirby. xo
