Mom peacefully passed away Sunday, February 2, 2014 at Ponderosa Lodge. Mina was born Oct. 2, 1923 in Vancouver to the late Lorene and Dr. Colton Miles. She was pre-deceased by her husband Art Barton and young son Richie. Mina has two surviving sons, Larry (Judy) of Chase and Ron (Ruth) of Lund, grandchildren, Dylan (Rhonda) and Damien (Nick) and great-grandchildren, Reid and Finnegan, all of Kelowna.
Mom met Art at U.B.C. and they were married in 1942 and settled in Kamloops to raise their children. After leaving Barton, Black and Robertson Insurance they re-located to Chase where they owned and operated Sunshore Golf Course. Their winters were spent in Phoenix until dad`s passing in 2004. Mom moved to Berwick on the Park at this time.
Mom loved to entertain and socialize. She also enjoyed swimming, golfing, curling and playing bridge. She remained chipper to the end!
Our deepest gratitude to Dr. Vagyi, Dr. Brink, Berwick staff, Dr. Chow, 3 west staff at R.I.H., Dr. Howie and 2nd floor staff at Ponderosa.
Should friends desire, donations to R.I.H. foundation 311 Columbia Street, Kamloops, B.C. V2C- 2T1 in memory of mom would be appreciated.
