We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on April 13, 2005, of Barbara Joyce McPherson, at the age of 70 years. Barbara was born in Transcona, Manitoba; raised in North Battleford, Sask., and resided in many towns in several provinces prior to moving to Vernon fifteen years ago. She was predeceased by her husband, John, in 1997. Barbara will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her sons, George Reid and Victor Reid of Edmonton; granddaughters April and Amanda; grandson Dean, and three great-grandchildren. She is also survived by numerous extended family members. Honouring her wishes, there will be no public funeral service held, but friends are invited to join the family at a Memorial Tea gathering on Thursday, April 21, at 1:00 P.M., in the Royal Canadian Legion in Vernon. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Barbara to the Canadian Diabetic Association, Box 1301, Vernon, V1T 6N6, would be appreciated. Cremation arrangements were in the care of Vernon Funeral Home. 250-542-0155.
