O'LEARY, Barbara Annette (Horwood)
Barbara enjoyed selling real estate and taking vacations in Florida. From 1992-2003, she and Joe also operated the IGA/Freshmart in Baddeck. Barbara had a passion for decorating and got her inspiration from her natural ability to choose all the right colors and furnishings, as well as HGTV and other home decorating related programs. She loved playing cards 120's, watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and also enjoyed searching for her forever puppy right up until her illness cut this endeavor short. Barbara was a long standing member of the Baddeck Royal Canadian Legion Branch #53.
The family wishes to thank the nurses and Homecare, who visited her daily providing outstanding care second to none, the nurses and staff at Victoria County Memorial Hospital, Dr. Chow and her family physician Dr. Roland Genge for his visits, both at the hospital and at her home, showing genuine concern for her well being. Also, thanks to Fr. Paul Abbass, Deacon Walter Ivany, and Dr. John Ritter and the palliative care nurses who visited her at the hospital and many times at home, providing unparalleled care for Barbara and consolation for the family in this time of sorrow. A special thank you to daughters, Sandra and Joanne who have been providing loving care and attention 24/7 since early January, with their help and devotion we were able to take Barbara home from hospital on February 4th.
At Barbara's request, there will be no visitation and cremation has taken place. In Barbara's memory, donations can be made in her name to the Victoria County Memorial Hospital Foundation, P.O. Box 602, Baddeck, N.S., B0E 1B0. A tribute website can be viewed at www.barbarahorwoodoleary.com Please feel free to share your stories and upload any photos you may have.
