In Salmon Arm Hospital, on the 19th June 2011, the angels came to guide Barb on her journey to the OTHER SIDE. On the 8th June 1946 Barbara was born in Clinton, Ontario to Norman & Phyllis Hamilton, both who have predeceased her. On the 5th February 1965 she married John Howard in Goderich, Ontario. In 1974 they moved to British Columbia and lived in William’s Lake, Mission and moved to Salmon Arm in 1991.
Barbara is survived by her very loving husband John and they were blessed with three very loving children: daughters Julie Kerr (Dan) of Williams Lake, BC and Kendra McDonald (Kelly) of Bothwell, Ontario and son Jason Howard (Trisha) of Prince George, BC. She is very loved and will be greatly missed by her six loving grandchildren: Tyler and Cody Kerr, Kortney, Kaelee McDonald, Montana and Matias Howard. Also surviving and missing her is her mother-in-law Alice Rodges of Goderich, Ontario.
She is also survived and will be missed by her sisters: Lorraine (Chuck) Shaw, Leone (Leroy) Ryan, Norma (Rene) Laframboise, Cathy McKenzie, and her brother Brad (Joanne) Hamilton, all of Ontario. She was predeceased by her sister Shirley. Also missing her are her many nieces, nephews and God-daughter Donna.
