MRS. BARBARA ANNE PAYNE passed away on May 24, 2005 at the age of 71 years young at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

She will be greatly missed by her loving husband Les and her daughters Darra (and husband Don) and Shorla, son Scott (and wife Jill) as well as her grandchildren Andrea, Jessica and Matthew and her stepchildren Glenn, Claire and Brennan.

A special thank you to Dr. Waldron and the wonderful staff at The Vernon Jubilee Hospital (Barb, Trish, June, Naomi and Shannon on 3W) for making her final days as comfortable as possible.

A celebration of life will be held in the chapel of the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home on Friday, May 27 at 2 pm.
