Barbara was born in New Lanark, Scotland.  Barbara and Ian raised their family in Scotland, Canada, and the USA. Barbara trained at Glasgow College of Domestic Science and worked in the industry for many years. She loved to entertain and cook for a crowd. A talented cook, baker, gardener, seamstress, knitter, golfer and curler, Barbara always dedicated herself with great success to the things she tried.  She volunteered as a member of the Wilson Rose Garden “Deadhead Society” for five years. She loved to dance with Ian and always had a song in her heart and a tune to whistle. She is truly missed.
