Passed away peacefully January 1st 2016 in Kelowna at the Central Okanagan Hospice House with family and loved ones by her side. After a 15 year battle with kidney failure Barbara’s spirit gave her permission to leave behind the restrictions of the aging body that housed her. She took her last breath at 6:33 AM on New Years Day and left us to be present with her Lord. Barbara is survived by her husband Randy, her 3 sons; Doug, Dale and Patrick, her daughter Laurie as well as 13 grand children and 1 great grand child. She is also survived by her 6 brothers, Dave, Brian, Jim, Peter, Rick and Don and her 2 sisters Sheila and Judy as well as 30 nieces and nephews. Barbara was born in Cardsten, Alberta on January 29th 1935 to Horace and Fidele Swan. She married Randolph John White of Provost, Alberta on April 19th 1956 and shortly after moved to BC where they lived in a number of places but eventually settled in Sicamous where they were residents for 16 years. It is for this reason that she chose Sicamous to be her final resting place.
