October 12, 2013 – Calgary, AB
It is with great sadness that the family of Barbara Sales (née Reid) announces her passing on Saturday, October 12, 2013, after a difficult battle with cancer, at the age of 65 years.
Barbara was a strong and generous spirit who enjoyed travelling; throughout her lifetime she had taken many trips to the Alberta Mountains, Vancouver Island, and the Western half of the United States.
She adored and doted on her granddaughters and loved being called “Grandma”. Her first thought was always for other people; she absolutely loved entertaining family and friends in her home, which was always decorated beautifully for holidays and other special occasions.
Barbara is survived by her soul mate and loving husband Allan; daughter Skylar Ciccaglione (née Sales), son-in-law John Ciccaglione and their daughters Avery and Jacqueline; daughter Chantelle Sales; brother John Reid; niece Diane Simpson (née Reid) and family; nephew Scott Reid and family, close friends and cousins Colin and Lisa Miller and family; as well as numerous other relatives and dear friends.
