It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Barbara Brown Roger (nee Paterson) on Sunday April 23, 2017. Loving mum of Mark (Janice) and Gaynor (Mike); treasured Gran of Rachel, Paul, Finnan and Leif; cherished friend of many; talented knitter; avid cross-border shopper; lover of travel; and passionate long time volunteer of Skate Canada – Central Ontario.
Barbara was always on the go from dawn to dusk, and lived life to the fullest. Strong, generous, loyal, compassionate, energetic and hard working, she had a smile for everyone and took great joy in each and every one of her friendships, near and far, old and new. Although born an only child in Glasgow, Scotland, Barbara passed away leaving an enormous wealth of friends who became part of her extended family, and who now miss her deeply.
We invite those whose lives Barbara has touched, to a memorial gathering to celebrate Barbara’s life at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S (Hwy 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Friday May 5, 2017 between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Cremation will take place prior to Friday. If desired, memorial donations may be made to The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada in memory of Barbara and her lifelong love of bringing smiles to young faces. The following is a link to the charity:
