October 6, 1940 – July 5, 2019
Barbara McLean (nee Wilson), loving wife of Ronald James McLean (deceased 2010), passed away suddenly on July 5, 2019 at her home in Alliston. Barb suffered a minor heart attack on June 25, 2019 and received two stents to recharge her active life. Barb was recovering very well, and was starting to get out-and-about again when suddenly, the second heart attack occurred.
From birth to Fern Avenue Public School, to cheerleader and Prom Queen at Parkdale Collegiate to wife to mom, from Parkdale to Bolton to Alliston, Barb lit up the world with her smile, laugh and all her positive energy; Barb truly touched the heart of everyone she encountered. Barb lived an absolutely full and amazing life, loving Ron and raising three kids, parties and travel, golf and curling, yoga and swimming, concerts and movies, food and “her” wine, PROBUS and Puppets, dinner parties and card games, all while joking and laughing with all her amazing friends.
Barb will be dearly missed and thought of daily by so many people, especially her children Kevin (Rasa), Derek (Lisa) and Michelle (Angelo) and all her grandchildren, Kyara, Maddy, Makana, Sierra, Jack, Saulius and Aaron. Her sister Marilyn (deceased 1946), brother Ted Wilson (deceased 2011), brother-in-law Richard D. McLean, QC of Toronto (Agnes) and nieces and nephews Katherine, Jim, Jeff and Linda, and her “530pm”sister Orlean MacGregor (Don) will also miss Barb greatly.
The family will receive their friends at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy. 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Tuesday morning, July 23 from 10 o’clock until time of memorial service in the chapel at 11 o’clock followed by a reception at 12 o’clock.
