I have traveled to join my family and friends who have gone before me to meet Our Heavenly Father. I grieve to leave behind my husband and soul mate of 36 years, Stephen Barcley; eldest son, Shawn Patrick (Laura); granddaughter, Naomi Selene, and youngest son, Ryan Francis (Jacqueline).

I leave behind some special friendships that for the past years have been a source of comfort, joy and laughter, and my dog Jada. I was born in Halifax on January 1, 1950, worked and lived there until I met my husband whom I married April 19, 1975, and then, am proud to say, became a Dartmouthian.

I then worked at the Nova Scotia Hospital for nine and a half years, subsequently working in several departments of the provincial government, most recently the Department of Health. I have been a dedicated member along with my husband at St. John's Anglican Church, Westphal, for many decades. It has been for us the key to our spiritual life and loving friendships. I enjoyed sharing our Cape Breton home on Janvrin's Island, with my friends as well as our children's friends. To all my friends, relatives and church family, you will all be with me as I journey home. Live life to the fullest as it is full of wonder. I leave with no regret, counting my blessings.
