It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Mother and “Granny”.
Barbara was born in Frontier, Saskatchewan and is survived by her brother Glen Halderman; sons: John (Terri), Brian (Ann) and Paul Sr. (Sherry); grandchildren: Fentisha (Ken), Paul Jr. (Melanie), Melinda (Joe), Michael (Irene), Natalie and Kristina (Jex); and great grandchildren: Brandon, Kennedy, Faith, Kathryn and Christopher.
Flowers, flowers, flowers were her passion, and Family was her pride.
Her fondest memories began in Saskatchewan with a horse named “Dot”. She then found her way to Edmonton where she was a hairdresser for near thirty years in Pleasantview, then after a brief time in Texas, returned to Edmonton and spent her time growing beautiful flowers and nurturing her family. Christmas Eve 2013 was the highlight of her year! Her Christian faith was her testament to all who knew her. She was a shining example of a life well lived.
A Memorial Service will be held at Calvary Community Church, 8704 Millwoods Road NW, Edmonton on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 11:00 a.m.
