We regret to announce the death at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on July 24, 2006, of Barbara Grace Thompson (nee Austin), at the age of 78 years. Barb was born in Biggar, Sask., and was a longtime resident of the Lower Mainland prior to retiring to Vernon in 1991. She was predeceased by her parents, Albert and Lucille Austin, and by her sister, Phyllis Ryan. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her sons: Dale of Salmon Arm, and Brook (Cathe) of Surrey; and grandchildren Jennifer and Peter “Nick”. She is also survived by sisters Penny, Mavis and Sandra, and brother “Bud” as well as numerous extended family members. Honouring her specific instructions, there will be no public service held. Friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Barb to Hospice House, 3506-27th Ave., Vernon, V1T 1S4. Cremation arrangements were in the care of Vernon Funeral Home. 542-0155.
