After a brave and brief battle with cancer, our beautiful bass witch Barbara has left us to sing for a Higher Choir.
She is survived by son Robert, brother Brian, aunts Pauline and Anita, cousin Roddy, and her extended family.
Barbara lived her life of joyful service as a healer, helper, and care-taker to those she loved. Her passions were singing sacred music, teaching sacred circle dancing, and her Wiccan faith. A true Priestess, she will be remembered by the everyone she danced, sang, drummed and worshipped with – especially with the Earth Charter Singers, and Musique Magique.
Her greatest joy was to connect people to music, so in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Ron Oswald Endowment Fund (Winnipeg Folk Festival Office) to connect young people to music/performing. Please sign your organ donor card in her memory. Her final act of love was the gift of sight to two people.
A Celebration of Barbara's life is being held at Voyage Funeral Chapel, Hespeller @ Henderson Hwy, Winnipeg on Saturday, May 30 at 1:00 pm. There will be drumming - sacred dance - singing - it was Barbara's wish that it truly be "a celebration".
