Barbara Anna (Clarke) Whittle

October 22, 1947 ~ July 18, 2018 (age 70)

   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

And so

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

I’m grateful

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
