Farkas, Barbara May

March 1, 1929 – May 17, 2015

It is with sadness that we share our mother’s passing. Barbara was a free gypsy spirit and a strong woman who loved to travel, explore and adventure. Mom emigrated from Scotland in 1966 with her 5 children. It was not an easy life but many of her favourite memories were spent with her children. While not happy to live her life alone she certainly never let it slow her down; camping, cruising and gallivanting on her own.

Mom was broken – hearted to lose her beloved sons, Alan Lornie (2003) & Ralph Lornie (2006). She leaves behind her son, Martin Lornie, daughters Babs Lornie McGary, Kate & (son – in – law) Alan Britton, her grandchildren Angela (Jordan), Lesley, David, Eric, Johnny, James (Laura), Farrell and Thea, and great – grandchildren Annika, Daniel, Emma and Trinity, as well as many dear friends, near and far.

Whenever you enjoy a delicious tall ice cream cone, one of her favourite things, please let Mom dance across your mind with love and a smile.

There will be no service by request. Barbara will be laid to rest at Ladysmith Cemetery on 4th Avenue. Rest in peace mom, you’re forever in our hearts.
