Barbara Lynn

June 21st, 1945 – June 26th, 2014

Barbara Lynn Garrett entered into eternal peace just after her 69th birthday on June 26th, 2014. Barb was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, auntie and friend. Barb is predeceased by her mother, Queenie Colquhoun, and father, Donald Colquhoun. She is survived by loving husband Bob; sister Carol (Larry); sons Scott (Karen) and Steve (Carla); granddaughters Gracee and Amara. She touched many lives and gave cherished memories to all who knew her. Her selfless acts of love and compassion for anyone in need made her loved by all. We will miss her vibrant smile, her adoration for nature and her healing touch. Her loving and caring soul has enriched our lives beyond measure, and her memory will continue as a shining example as long as we breathe. Barb was born in Medicine Hat, AB. and spent her childhood years in Maple Creek, Sask. Her maternal nature and love for children led her into a fulfilling career as a maternity nurse in Penticton. Barb had a passion for travel with friends and family, spirituality, camping, crafting, singing, and perhaps most of all time spent in her backyard garden with her granddaughters. Until we meet again in meadows of wild flowers. A Memorial Service will be held at Penticton United Church, 696 Main Street, Saturday, July 5 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the charity of your choice
