"With one silent Canadian J - stroke Barb has propelled her canoe away from the shore and is paddling of on her next journey guided by another hand."

Barb left us on Sunday, May 30, 2010 at Baycrest Hospital after a 9 month battle with abdominal cancer. She leaves Ross her loving husband and devoted partner in her outdoor loves and "her boys" Jamie, Scott and Jeffrey, to whom she imparted her love for all things natural. She will be lovingly remembered by her mom and dad Kay and Bill Hummel of Markdale, brothers Rick (Kim), Barrie (Lisa) and sister Sandy Boghossian (Mike). mother in law Fran MacDonald and Ross's brothers David (Kim Dow), Jim (Linda), John (Marcia) and Bob Grant.

We are indebted to Dr. E. Venier Barb's Family Physician for her advocacy and support during Barb's illness and words can not describe the level of care that Barb received from Princess Margaret Hospital and Dr. H. MacKay, Dr. E. Kennedy, Dr. J. Murphy the Chemotherapy team and the doctors and nurses on the Palliative Care floor. Barb spent her last weeks in the care of the palliative team at Baycrest Hospital and we thank them for their compassion and care of Barb.

This was a tough fight for Barb, but the support from her colleagues in the O.T. dep't at Sick Kids, Ross's Crescent School community, friends, and neighbours made it easier.

A Celebration of her Life will be held at Fairlawn United Church (5 blocks North of Lawrence Ave. west of Yonge St.) on Monday June 7th, 2010 at 2:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Princess Margaret Foundation.
