I first met Regina in 1980, when, as a young nursing student, I applied for a summer job at St. Patrick’s Mercy Home. I was so appreciative of Regina believing in me and providing me with my first ‘nursing’ job.
Many years later, Regina hired me again but this time as a Public Health Nurse. I will always be grateful to Regina for opening those critical two doors for me during my career.
To Regina’s family and friends, please accept my sincere condolences.

Regina was an amazing woman and we are so sorry to hear about her death. She was my Mom’s dear friend and, in her latter years, her traveling companion. My sister and I had the privilege of traveling with Regina to Chile and Argentina. What a time we had playing cards by the ocean and exploring colorful cities. Regina will be missed, but my Mom (Sheila Barlow Barnable) will be so happy to see her again in heaven!

Regina was a lovely lady who will be missed by all who knew her. I will always remember her kindness to me, including her help in coaching me for an oratorical contest when I was a teenager. May she rest in peace.

Sending sincere condolences to Regina’s family. We have wonderful memories of happy times in Calvert and Florida. Rest in peace dear friend.

Sending our sincere condolences to all the family, sorry for your loss.

Sincere sympathy to Regina’s family, rest in peace lovely lady.
Sincerely, Anna Power

Regina, words cannot express how much we will miss you. Cards and art classes will never be the same especially when you insisted that car seats had to be heated for me on cold nights. RIP my friend as you are irreplaceable.

To Regina’s Family, She was a lovely lady to work with and a lovely lady to play bridge with. May she rest in peace.

We were so saddened to hear of Regina’s passing. We became good friends during our years as neighbours at 59 Roosevelt. We shared many meals and lot of laughs. She will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathy to Hugues and his family and to all of her family and friends. Rest in peace dear friend.

I was a nursing classmate of Regina’s. When in Victoria, BC she came to visit me on a few occasions. My condolences to her family for their loss.

Good bye and God keep you Regina. An outstandingly gentle and kind heart has left us. I grieve her loss and hope the great pain for all her family and friends will soon be lessened. Another person who gave me great joy growing up when I was with the Sullivan family is gone, and I will feel her loss for a long time.

So sorry to hear of Regina’s passing. She was a great friend. Many memories of her at 59 Roosevelt—- from yoga in the hallway, salt- water duck dinners, scrabble games, and many more. She will be dearly missed. Our sincere condolences to her family.

Sincere condolences to Regina’s family and loved ones. She was a nursing classmate who used her skills to care for others while keeping her sense of humour. My thoughts and prayers are with you all and may she rest in peace.

Regina was a truly wonderful and selfless human being. She did her best to help everyone around her. I will miss her wit and compassion. A class act. Rest in Peace Regina.

My sincere condolences to Jerome, Eddy, David and families , Hugues and family . Regina and I grew up together in Calvert and were good friends all through the many years since. I will miss her .

Condolences to all of Regina’s family. She was a wonderful lady full of energy and cared by and for so many people. I loved playing cards with her and she always would add encouragement for the next hand. Date squares were amazing and I will miss seeing her when I visit family in St. John’s.

A classmate, a woman of strength and character, and most of all a friend to both of us. Our condolences to all who loved her. Rest well Regina.
