Barbara DORE

DORE – Barbara Jane(nee Hanna)

June 19, 1930-November 6, 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved wife and mother, Barbara. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years, Walter as well as her children, Philip, Michael (Valarie), Kathryn (Don Hall) and Heather (Geoff Grognet) and son-in-law Ed Hall. Our dear sister, Leslie Hall, predeceased her only 5 short weeks ago. Barbara will also be missed by her grandchildren, Andrea, Alana, Kelly, Chris, Jenna, Skye and Kivrin as well as great-grand-daughter, Hannah, many loving nieces, nephews and cousins. Barbara was the daughter of the late F.J. and Muriel Hanna of Ottawa, Ontario and sister to Major General James Hanna and the late Elizabeth Lawler of Ottawa.

Mom will always be remembered for her kindness, sense of humour and adventure, and her ladylike manners. She had many good friends, especially in our adopted province of Nova Scotia. She loved good company, travel and had a passion for watching figure skating. We celebrated her 60th wedding anniversary and 80th birthday last June as a whole family for the last time.

We wish to thank the wonderful staff of Peace Arch Hospital, especially 6 North who took such good care of Mom during her 65 day stay.

A memorial to celebrate Barbara’s life will be held on Saturday November 13th, 2010 at 2pm at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, George St, White Rock, B.C. In lieu of flowers any donations to the White Rock Hospice Society, 15510 Russell Avenue, White Rock, B.C. V4B 2R3 would be greatly appreciated.
