I can´t believe Barbara has gone, she will live forever in our memories. A beautiful lady, so fun and so caring. Always effervescent, always a glass half full person with an infectious optimism - even the last few days when we called in she had a joke with Ivan. Love you Barbara, will miss our going out for a meal, and popping in for a cuppa. Anna and John will welcome you with open arms. We will miss you always. Arohanui our dear and special friend.
Frankie, Ivan and Family

My condolences to Leigh, Kirsty and Amanda, my neighbours for many years when growing up.
I met up with Barbara again through Tai Chi and after all these years lived in the same street again. Barbara was very active and full of life. RIP

I was lucky enough to have Barb as my boss at my very first job in the Hosiery dept of PDC.
I learnt far more from Barb than just retail, she was like a second Mum to us girls, She always referred to Treena and I as 'My girls' and was fiercely loyal to us. I still use the egg cups she bought me one Christmas & think of her every time I do. A beautiful lady inside and out xx
