Barbara Helen Sinitsin

September 29, 1935 – March 1, 2008

Barbara passed away peacefully at Peace Arch Hospital on Saturday, March 1st, at the age of 72, with her family close by her side. Barbara is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Paul, her children David (Diane), Grant, Elaine Levy (Peter) and her granddaughters Stephanie, Kaitlyn and Mikayla. She will also be remembered by many loving relatives and friends.

Barbara was a loving wife, mother and friend whose kindness touched the lives of many. Although she especially enjoyed gatherings of family and friends, she had a special place in her heart for everyone that she met.

Always positive and upbeat, her caring nature lead her to work in Peace Arch and Shaughnessy Hospitals as well as help with several volunteer organizations over the years.

We would like to thank the kind staff of Evergreen Baptist Care Home (D2) and the Dr. Hogg Pavilion of Peace Arch Hospital (3rd floor), whose care and compassion helped Barbara and her family through a 7 year struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am, Saturday March 8, 2008 at the First United Church, 15385 Semiahmoo Ave., White Rock. A reception will follow in the church hall.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated for the Alzheimer’s Society of BC (www.alzheimerbc.org).
