STEAD / ALDERSON (nee Brown)

Alfie Esmeralda Augusta “Barb”

March 12, 1920 ~ March 3, 2017

Bubu (baby), was born in Stogursey, Somerset, England the eldest of two children.  After a well lived life, Barb deserved a rest and so peacefully left us to take her place in heaven. She was predeceased by her parents Lillie Belle and Charles Brown (father); Albert Foxell (Pa); husbands Raymond and Louis; and daughter and son-in-law Sara and Robert Davis. Survived by and lovingly missed by her daughter Isabel Jennifer; son-in-law Peter Kooy; her much loved grandchildren; Greg (Nichola), Jeff (Erin), Mark (Laura), Trevor, Christine, Michelle (Kiah), and Courtney (Mike); not to be left out, Granma’s great grandchildren; Eric, Daphne, Robbie, Ashley, Sarah, Kingston, Thea, Theodore, Josephine, Emilia, Bronson, and Lochlan. Close to her heart was her sister Betty (Stanley-deceased), nephew and niece Ian, Sally (and family), along with many family members and friends across Canada and England. Barb travelled and lived across Europe and Canada.  Working in several doctor’s offices and hospitals along the way, wherever she was she managed to create a home full of love.  A British lady of grace, intelligence, humility, humour, kindness, compassion and gentleness.  These qualities made it possible for her to be a caring and loved support network to her family, friends, children and animals.  Although she will be missed she will forever be in our hearts.

” the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit

is of great worth in God’s sight .” Peter 3:4
