Barbara was born in Southern Ontario and as a young woman, bought a thick coat and moved to Winnipeg. There she met her husband Darren, and became a loving wife with one daughter and two grandsons.
Barbara is a certified Administrative Assistant with University background and experience in both Purchasing and Logistics.
In her spare time, Barbara enjoys scrapbooking, reading, fishing and enjoying time at the cabin in the summer months.
She has been involved in fundraising for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Winnipeg as well as the Kidney Foundation and the Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg. She is always up to a fundraising challenge and even dumped a bucket of water over her head for the famous ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after losing a co-worker to ALS in the prime of her life.
Going into the funeral industry was a big change for Barbara. She felt it was a great way to put her kindness and compassion to good use, while helping others through a difficult time in their life. As someone who has faced her own losses, she feels it is healing to her when she is able to help others through this period of transition.
