Barbara died on September 27th and will be missed by her many nieces, nephews and friends. Barbara was a long-time member of the Academy where she shared her extensive knowledge of music and art. She was always immaculately dressed and I never saw her not wearing high-heeled shoes!
For several years she organized trips to the Shaw Festival for Academy members. These trips were always a delight and Barbara was an excellent tour guide, sometimes making side trips in the Niagara region for visits to places of historical interest.
