Very sorry to hear about Barb passing. Condolences to everyone.

Tex and Family.
Our condolences to all of you in the passing of Barb. I will always remember her bright and smiling face.

Dale & Ed Wright

We’re so very sorry to hear of Barb’s passing.

In 2009 our family were visiting home, and when we dropped by to see Barb and Tex, they were very welcoming. Barb opened her home to us at that time, and was a very gracious host. Barb was generous, and kind, and we will remember her that way.

We’d like to add our condolences, too, to those in all the other beautiful comments already written here.

Marion, Mitchell, Joseph and Ivy Ryan

To the Janes family, Tex and family. I would like to send my condolences from, Kay Janes and family.. She was a very nice person. She would always have a conversation with me when I walked my grandchildren on her ROAD. I always enjoyed having a yarn with her. Heaven just received another Angel.

Our deepest condolences to all the family, she will be dearly missed by many.

Tex and family. I am so sorry for your loss I worked with Barb at Sobeys in the Avalon mall for along time. She was a pleasure to work with and to know everyone loved her and her wit. May you rest in peace.

A true loss to family and friends. From childhood, I always remember Barb smiling and laughing, and that is the memory I will keep with me.

Condolences to Tex and all family and friends.

Mal & Steph

My prayers go out to the family.So sorry for your loss. Jean and Wayne Pike (Clarke)

How do you say good bye to a sister in law that’s been there for 52 years? I guess you don’t. She’ll live on in memories she’s left us with. She joined our family as a young woman and grew with us. She was always there with her easy nature and quick smile. She was one of us and she was loved. To my brother Tex and his family, we are so sorry for your loss of our beautiful Barb.. She has many loved ones waiting for her on the other side. Jen, John, Mal, Steph, Mitch, Marion and kids.

So sorry for your loss. Thinking of you at this difficult time. Heather

Tex and family,
My condolences on this sudden, unexpected loss. I am a first cousin on the Fifield side. My mother was Olive Eastman (Fifield). I met Barb on several occasions when visiting family in the St. John’s area. She was always so friendly and gracious. Sending prayers and love to you all.
