Barbara Anna Whittle, beloved mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and nurse, passed away at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre on July 18th, 2018.
Barb was born in Renfrew, Ontario on October 22, 1947 to Delia Chevalier Clarke and Joseph Clarke.
She is survived by her loving children, Clark and Cheri Whittle and grandchildren, Winter, Sarah, Benjamin and Hailey.
She was predeceased by the love of her life, Terry Whittle and her daughter, Rochelle Adel.
Barbara added joy to every life she touched both in and out of the healthcare field. She will be forever remembered for the twinkle in her eye and her infectious laugh, her ability to instantly dissolve tension and her delicious apple pie. She will be greatly missed by everyone she blessed with her memory and will live in our hearts forever.
As energy flows off the falls
And lifts in northern lights
I let a little go
You gain a little flight
I have so much gratitude for u
And how you helped me grow
But there’s still a little girl in me
It’s hard to let u go
but I’m numb
I’m sad and somehow relieved
And not because you’re gone
But that you can finally breathe
That you’re somehow at peace
With dad and finally free
You fought so hard for me
And one day I hope to see
That bit of you in me
White butterflies dance
Your song of peace
And help me try to just release
To ground surround with love and peace
I love you mom
