COUPLAND, Barbara

June 1959 – November 25, 2021

Barb passed away peacefully on November 25, 2021 in Edmonton, Alberta, after a short, but courageous battle with cancer. Barb faced her illness, as she did her life…with courage and positivity, winning the hearts of all of her doctors and medical team.

Barb was predeceased by her loving husband Graham, her father-in-law Laurence and her brother-in-law Russell.

Left to miss Barb are her loving parents Layton & Jean Burgoyne, her 6 siblings Joyce (Mike), Erroll (Sandra), Ross (Amy), Brenda (George), Glenda (Greg), Heather (Bob), her Mother-in-law Joyce Coupland and step-daughters Lindsey (Paul), Bailey (Sam) and her four beautiful step-grandchildren Bremner, Kaidance, Clark and Matilda.

Barb will be dearly missed by her fur baby Jayd (her Angel), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.

Barbara left her beloved Prince Edward Island and moved to Edmonton in 1981, where she began a career in sales. In 2004, Barb was hired by Screen Craft Industries, where she excelled in her career in sales. She will be greatly missed by her work family and all of her clients that were also her friends.

Barb was a light in the room and always knew how to have fun. Barb, your spirit is roaming free with Graham and your two fur babies Ragz and Tobi.

Your presence will be deeply missed, our sweet Barbie. Your memory will be forever embedded in our hearts. We love you so much and our family will never be the same without you.

A celebration of Barbara’s life will be announced at a later date.

I want to express my deepest condolences. Barb was a great friend whom I had the privilege of seeing in October. She was positive and full of grace. We spent many times visiting in Edmonton over the years and she always had a smile on her face. She will be missed.

Sharyn Flood

For 50 years now the Burgoynes have been like family to me. My heart broke to hear the news of Barb’s passing. She truly was a bright light on Earth. She had an endearing manner and called everyone ‘Darling’ whereas Barb herself was the true darling. She lives forever in my heart and childhood memories. May all of her family find peace in their own memories of the beauty that was Barb. May Barb rest in peace reunited with her beloved Graham. <3

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Burgoyne and Coupland families. We were privileged to be friends of Barb and Graham over the last many years. Barb nurtured her friendships and selflessly cared for her life partner, Graham. Even in her short time since Graham’s passing, Barb cared for others all the while fighting her own battle with cancer. She was always so positive and lit up the room. You left us too early Barb. We will miss you. Your family, especially Brenda and Glenda were so loving and devoted.
We will treasure your friendship and kindness. Rest peacefully Barb. God bless.

I was devastated and shocked to read of Barb’s passing! I have so many great memories of us growing up and all the fun we shared, all things we did together, some sad times and many long conversations about everything! We lost touch over the years and only ran into each other when visiting PEI but regardless of time, Barb was and is always a special friend that was a part of my life. I will never forget her! Rest in peace Barb now that you are with Graham! Sending my sincere sympathy and love to each of you during this very difficult and sad time! Hold your memories close to your heart and Barb will forever walk beside you! xx
