Barb might have been my Step Mom however she truly was more of what a mother should be to me than my own. She was kind and caring. Soft spoken and never raised her voice. I never really saw her get angry. Disappointed yes but never did she make you feel terrible even if you were in the wrong. So supportive in all we did. A woman that was very positive no matter what was thrown at her. I feel like she didn’t have a negative bone in her body. Always gave EVERYONE the benefit of the doubt. I will always cherish my time with her spent going to the car races. When we all lived on Drew St I can remember her out back working in the garden. She would always ask one of my kids or both to come out and help her out. Or she would just have them out there with her to play. Barb will be missed not only by myself but Mason and Natasha also. Hope you get to see Dale Earnhardt up there Barb!!! xoxoxo

I will miss my frequent phone calls with Aunt Barbie. I would often call her on my way to or from work. It was guaranteed that she would tell me 3 things each time we chatted. First, was that I was like my mom, always on the go. Second, the thought of my upcoming plans made her tired. Lastly and most importantly she finished every call with “I love you too honey”. Of course we chatted about our family and what was going on and we laughed but I could always count on the 3 points for sure. She has always reminded me of my mom and when I saw her last month she reminded me of her mom, grandma Ruston. We were lucky to have those ladies in our lives. I haven’t seen her as much as I wanted but will cherish the many phone conversations. Signing off with I love you too Aunt Barbie!!

It is so hard to lose someone who has been a big part of your life . This is the case for me with Barbara (Ruston) McConaghy . I first met Barbara in the 1950's when I was her teacher in Linton Public School near Nobleton. I remember that happy, smiling face and loved her from that year until now. Later , she became part of the family when her sister married my brother. One day Barb told me that she still has a report card that I had made at the end of a school year. Over the years I have treasured my times with Barb and her family. May your memories of happy times help you now in these sad days and in the days to come . My sympathy to all hugs from Muriel (Goltz ) Cairns in Bracebridge .
