Left to cherish Barbara’s memory are her 3 children and their families, Ken (Jo-ann) Routledge and their children, Amanda (Scott) Herrmann, Daniel (Kailagh) and their children, Meya and Zoey; Heidi (Mark) French; their children, Christopher French and Rebecca (Mark Fontaine) and their children, George and Evie; Lynn (Ron) Noga and their children, Chelci Noga and her children, Jaxon and Ainsleigh and Courtney (Fleming) Zuhling and their son, Easton. Barbara is also survived by her sister, Ila (Con) Dombowsky and their family, Shawn (Karen) – Alex and Elizabeth; Shane (Kristen) – Wilson; brother, Arnold (Bev) Wilson and family, Brian, Arnold ‘Roy’, Paul, Alana and her family. Bubba was born in Richmond Hill, Ontario and built memories spending time with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed having coffee with her many friends in both Calgary and Medicine Hat. Bubba looked forward to her Friday lunch with the ladies and “grudgingly” enjoyed her Tuesday “old ladies daycare”. Barbara spent many enjoyable hours reading a variety of books with three to four on the go at once. She also took a great deal of pleasure puttering away in the garden and was fond of the fruits of her labour. One of the most treasured family memories was helping to “build” cigarettes. She will be lovingly remembered for all the great memories and connections that were made over the years.
