October 11, 1931 – August 18, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Barbara Snow. She was a beloved wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great- grandmother.
She was born the oldest daughter to Ronald and Jane Eaton in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was a child and an adult of the Armed Forces lifestyle. She travelled to many locations both as a child and in her married life…Vancouver, Aylmer Ontario, Trenton Ontario, Goose Bay Labrador (loving that lifestyle), Calgary, Ottawa, Kapuskasing Ontario, Cranbrook, Green Lake and finally 100 Mile House. While living in Vancouver she graduated from Lord Byng High School. After graduation, she met, fell in love and married Gerald Snow. She raised and cared for her family while working in the banking industry (prior to computers) wherever we were living. When we all left home mom and dad moved from Cranbrook to their retirement home at Green Lake where she enjoyed 12 years relaxing with a view of the Lake. After moving from the lake, she then enjoyed her view overlooking 100 Mile House for 10 years. She was brave in so many ways. Always very humble and never one to complain. She was so very constant in her ways.
Barbara (mom) is survived by her sisters Beverley Pattyson and Susan Rudolph, her children Patrick and Carol, Maureen, Kathy and Ralph, Wendy and Devin, Tim and Lisa; her grandchildren Helen, Nicholas, Dustin, Katy, Jennifer, Ben, Laura and Jesse; her great-grandchildren Kaleb, Jon, Roberta, Hannah, Carter, Kiah and wee Chase; her great-great-grandchild Annastasia and her many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her husband and her mother and father. She died suddenly at her new home in Carefree Manor in 100 Mile House.
Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Street and Jen at Village Medical Clinic for their constant care and kindness; the wonderful and so caring staff and friends that she made at Carefree Manor; Val Severin at 100 Mile House Funeral Home for her gentle care; and all of mom’s friends that have shared their warmth, caring spirits and kind words.
There will be no service at Mom’s request. Donations can be made to the South Cariboo Health Foundation in 100 Mile House.
Mommy, you are now in Daddy’s arms once again and you will forever be in our hearts.
“Morning has broken, like the first morning…”
