Barb was born and raised in Taber where she resided her whole life. She worked alongside her husband in the hardware store and dress shop until Dennis passed away. Barb loved to travel, go camping and fishing. She always put her family first and just loved to spend time with her grandchildren. In recent years, she never missed coffee with the ladies at A&W, all of whom were very special to her. Staying independent in her own home made her happy and she was there to the end. Barb will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed.
