In Loving Memory
Barbara passed away peacefully January 1st 2016 in Kelowna at the Central Okanagan Hospice House with family and loved ones by her side. After a 15-year battle with kidney failure Barbara’s spirit gave her permission to leave behind the aging body that housed her. She took her last breath at 6:33AM on New Years Day and left us behind to be present with her Lord.
Barbara is survived by her husband Randy, her 3 sons; Doug, Dale and Patrick (White) her daughter Laurie (DeKleine) as well as 13 grand children and 1 great grand child. She is also survived by her 6 brothers, Dave, Brian, Jim, Peter, Rick and Don (Swan) and her 2 sisters Sheila (Silvester) and Judy (Cameron) as well as 30 nieces and nephews.
Barbara was born in Cardsten, AB on January 29th 1935 to Horace and Fidele Swan. She married Randolph John White of Provost, AB on April 19th 1956 and shortly after that moved to BC where they raised a family and lived in multiple places eventually settling in Sicamous where they were residents for 16 years. It is for this reason that she chose Sicamous to be her final resting place.
A grave-side service will be held at the Eagle Valley & District Cemetery on Saturday January 9th 2016 at 2pm.
All friends and family are welcome to attend.
