Barb was a wonderful , giving person I first met as Director of Meaford Nursing Home, then over the years in other nursing venues, Alzheimer Society, etc & St Mary's Church. She was dedicated in all she did, family,career, & church activities.
May pleasant memories help the family through this difficult time.

To the Fox family,
I have never had the pleasure of meeting your Mom in person, but have met her through my cousin, Joan Mills. Barb and I exchanged a few letters and holy books and she was always thoughtful and generous with her kind words. My prayers and thoughts are with you in this very difficult time. May you find peace and comfort knowing that we are praying for you all. Warm regards in this time of sorrow.

I am so sorry to all of Barb's family and friends. I am unable to attend due to another commitment. Barb was a woman of great faith, who lived the Cursillo movement and who helped to bring others to our Lord. Please feel my hugs and know that I am praying for all of you.

For Barbs family- I knew your Mom from years ago working at Lee Manor, and over the past 30 years or so we would meet each other when least expecting to- she would hug, smile, and we'd laugh- she was wonderful- we would talk as if not a moment had passed, let alone years! She will be missed by many- her goodness she has left on this world. May her smile stay with you all-

So sad to hear of your mother's passing but now she is no longer suffering. I have many wonderful memories of her and your family. You kids were so cute. I am very fortunate to have had your mother visit me last fall. I would love to see you all but am having some treatments on my eye in mississauga on Tuesday and will be unable to attend the funeral on Wednesday. Peace and love to everyone.

Please accept our heartfelt condolences. We are so glad Barbara had the opportunity to travel to Poland to visit the shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa with her sister before her health took a turn for the worst just a few months earlier. Our Lady has undoubtedly waited with open arms for this devotee of hers and her divine Son.

We are very sad to hear of Barbara's death. What a profound loss for her family. Fr. John will say a Mass for the repose of Barbara's soul. One thing we do know is that love is stronger than death. Love never dies.

Rest eternal grant unto Barbara, O Lord. And may light perpetual shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
