Barb was born on July 18, 1940 in Logan Township. She and Murray were married on May 18, 1963. They lived in many places, and Barb wore many different hats during her life. She and Murray enjoyed working together on the farm, and then later, delivering rural mail. She and her niece Trish Diniz were lucky to share a special bond, and Barb would refer to her as ‘the daughter she finally got to have’. Barb and Murray loved their time at the cottage as well as their Calvary United Church family.
