Mom’s wishes were simple - celebrate all that was beautiful in her life. Mom wanted a wine and cheese party - a true celebration, which she so subtly hinted to her family and her friends over the years. She wanted a Prosecco toast and a celebration of life. As Mom wished, we proudly celebrate in her honour - Her four children - Kirk (Sheri), Charmaine, Michelle (Cameron), and Clint (Beth). Her two wonderful grandkids, Payton and Jaron. Mom was so proud of each one of us and the people we have become. She congratulated our successes and was saddened when we stumbled. Mom adored her family - sister Jackie, mom Anne, dad Peter, and her brother Denis. Growing up on a farm made her a strong, courageous and resilient woman. She was, most recently, a fabulous hairdresser, but like her mom, was a compassionate aide at the Yorkton Nursing Home for many years. Mom cherished her relationships with her dear friends and extended family, some friends with whom she has known for decades and many who visited her bedside in her final days. She was always prepared to open a bottle of wine or share a beer with her friends. Mom’s pet family was also incredibly important to her. Her faithful poodle, Hershey, and kitty Miss Sophia, as well as Cloé and Katy, with whom she’ll be seeing again. Mom had beautiful flower beds and abundant vegetable gardens wherever she called home, and her cooking and baking were exceptional, especially her recent exploration into French beignets. Mom was fancy. She always had a jam-packed wardrobe, wore perfume and lots of jewelry. She adored visiting Charmaine’s shop, French Toast Kitty, and believed lipstick was the answer to many of life’s problems. Mom fell in love with Tuscany, Italy, and all the beauty of the Italian countryside. It was here that Mom finally had her glorious dream vacation. A private wine tasting and San Giamiango were the highlights of this trip of a lifetime. Mom truly saved up all her energy for this holiday. She came home thoroughly exhausted. Mom was an amazing support to all of us over the years gaining many titles along the way - Hockey Mom, The Mamma, and most recently, International Design Consultant and Rockstar Mom.
Mom passed away after a brief stay at the Yorkton Regional Hospital with her four kids and sister at her side. Thank you so much for being with us to celebrate our Mom. She may be gone, she will most surely be missed, but she will never ever be forgotten. We love you Mama.
The interment took place in the Yorkton City Cemetery. A Life Celebration was held on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at the Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Crystal Bailey, Certified Celebrant, officiating. The tributes were given by Colleen Haider and Charmaine Tomyn. Memorial donations may be made to the Paws & Claws Animal Rescue (Box 1047 Yorkton, SK S3N 2X3) as gifts of remembrance, and online condolences may be left for the family at

Thinking of you and yours tonight as you celebrate Barb’s life. My fondest memory of Barb is from Les and Dwight’s wedding. She was so beautiful in that purple dress! Think of you often. Find joy in the memories❤️

Scott and I were in shock when I got your message yesterday. I had just posted those pics of one of your visits to Winnipeg many years ago. Your Mom and I kept in touch through FB as we don’t get to Yorkton very often anymore. We have such wonderful memories of times shared with your family. Your Mom was such an amazing cook and always made our favourites when we came for dinner. We would laugh until our sides hurt over crazy things. We will keep those wonderful memories of her in our hearts. I hope that you too will have many precious memories of times you shared with your Mom and that these memories will give you comfort at this sad time. Sending love to all of you. Sorry that we cannot make it for her service. We will be thinking of you.
Scott and Marilyn Preston

Jackie and family I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot believe she is gone. We were planning a breakfast get together after she was back from her cruise and had rested up some. I am in total shock. Take care
