  1. Janet Illingworth :

    I’m so sorry your mom has passed away. I have many, many happy memories of “Auntie” Barb. She taught me how to iron, among other things, and to this day, every time I iron something, I remember her telling me the wrinkle I iron in, is the hardest wrinkle to get out. She was an exceptional Mother and Aunt and I am sorry for your loss.
