  3. Sad to lose such an amazing, caring person. Will miss you at our monthly meals Barb. A dearly loved member of the ‘hairy harem’. Sympathy to Tyrone and her family. Reunited with her ‘secretary’ Fred.

  4. Barbara was a beautiful lady, inside and out. One of the kindest people we have known. She was truly a down to earth, genuine, generous and hard working human being who was not only devoted to her family but spent years caring for others in the community. Our friendship spanned nearly 40 years and was filled with lots of laughs and tears, a shared love of pets, good food and wine (only for medicinal purposes as Barb would say!) sending much love and sympathy to Tyrone and all of the extended family on this sudden loss of a very special woman. See you later Barbara and thank you for everything. Sandi and Brett in Melbourne xxxx

  5. My heartfelt sympathy to Tyrone, Leah & Lachie on the passing of your beloved Mum and Nanna, Barb! I have very fond memories of a jovial Barb (& Fred) putting on a BBQ in their Kilsyth backyard as a get-together for Tyrone and his friends some 30-odd years ago. We were always made welcome in their home. You will be sadly missed by everyone who knew you. RIP Barb! xxx

  8. My sympathies to the family of Barbara. She was a very lovely lady who I had come to know over the years though my shop. Barbara had made numerous quilts for friends and family and she was very partial to a particular teddy bear pattern. Every time she came in she would say I not making this pattern again and then next week she would be back to grab fabric to make it again. I will miss her But Barb and Edna will be crafting together again. RIP Barb.
