Our deepest condolences to Shelley, Kurt and family. Barb was a beautiful woman and will always be remembered as the person who kept an eye over all of us in our teenage years by always opening her home to us. She was a special lady . We wish her family peace during this difficult time. We will always have wonderful memories of her kindness and laughter.

To Kurt and Shelley & family,
Your mom was a lovely lady and a great neighbor. We'll all miss her wonderful sense of humor and lively personality. She was always so kind and friendly, and thinking of others. I really appreciated that she remembered my parents, who she had only met a few times several years ago, but often asked about them when she knew that they could no longer travel to London for visits.
Wishing you all of the best in this difficult time.
Karen Buchholz, unit 21

My deepest condolences to Shelley, Kurt and family. In this time of sorrow, family and friends will be your greatest source of comfort. Barb was a wonderful lady and a great neighbour. The two of us had many chats and enjoyed a few chuckles along the way. She was so proud of her family and very few conversations did not include her talking about one or more of her family members. Rest in peace, you will be missed. Dusan

Barb had been my neighbour for the past 14 years and was one of the original owners of our condo units, like myself. Our decks were diagonally across from each other. In the spring and summer months we always conversed back and forth and enjoyed little visits. I remember how she loved her flowers and always had a beautiful display of planters on her deck. She was forever, watering and caring for her plants, as well as her grass. She took great pride in keeping everything looking nice. She was a wonderful lady who contributed to our condo community in many positive ways. I will miss our friendship and seeing her on her deck, surrounded by all her gorgeous flowers. It was a privilege having her for my neighbour.

My heart goes out to Shelly, Kurt and the rest of her family. May you find peace in the days ahead as you hold close to your heart, all the special memories shared.
Sincerely, Karen Calaiezzi (unit 17)
