Barbara James

JAMES, Barbara….

Barbara James passed away on Wednesday April 21, 2021 in her 91st year, as the spring blossoms she loved so much were being dusted with snow.

She was at peace, with her loved ones by her side: daughter Cathie, son David and his wife Marie, who was a second daughter to her. Barbara’s husband Haydn was taken 28 years before her, but he never left her heart for a moment.

Barbara was one of those rare people who touched the lives of all who knew her with her kindness, compassion and humour. Jaime, Evan and Chantal were blessed to have her as their beloved Grannie. She was a devoted sister to Terry and Gill Dickinson, and aunt to Joanna, Robert and Amanda.

Barbara was born and lived in Wales before coming to Canada in the late 50s. The close friends she made here became family. Gerda Jensen and Gill Pinkney were like sisters to her, and Haydn Jensen was a beloved nephew.

Special thanks to the 5th floor cardiac unit at Victoria Hospital for their care and attention.
