We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Zentner Funeral Homes
It has been said that Barbara took on the name "mother" at the tender age of nine when her own mother passed away. She took on the role with vigour as she planned and cooked a family dinner for her father and cousin's family and all who attended said it was delicious. There started her love of cooking, and for the next sixty years. All who knew her could attest to the fact that she continued to earn the title "mother", whether it was her family, her gardens, her boys, exchange students, or those fortunate enough to discover her "open door, open arms" policy. She nurtured every being in her path. Her love knew no bounds, and her compassion was felt by all who knew her.
Barbara's keen interest in reading helped her continue travelling after her and Aime's days of travelling the world were through. Her desire to learn and teach paid great honour to her home country of Poland and her adopted country of Canada. Her talent for needle crafts and her skill at card-playing only added to her magnetism.
Barbara was predeceased by many family members from her old country and new, her eldest son, Allan and her beloved Shepherd, Symphony. She is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Aime, her younger son, Brian and her granddaughters, Ava and Lucy.
Forever in our hearts, minds and memories.
Until we meet again, Mamushka.
